  • Divide your hair into two sections - left and right. Also, remember to untangle your hair properly before you start applying the paste on your hair. 
  • Now, take the left section first and divide it into smaller sub-sections. 
  • Apply the paste to each sub-section one by one with the help of a brush. 
  • Once you have covered all the sub-sections on the left side, move on to the right and repeat the same procedure. 
  • After you have applied the paste to all your hair, cover your head with a shower cap and leave it on for about half an hour. 
  • After 30 minutes, wash your hair with cold water. The trick here is that you have to skip shampoo and directly jump to the conditioning part.

  • Air dry your hair.
