We suggest using Hot Without Heat on clean hair with some dampness for optimal results. If you want to add extra moisture and shine, we love using a good hair oil. Just a dime size in the palm will do the trick! Apply to your hair right before you put on your Hot Without Heat tool. Once your curls are ready to go – they should stay strong all day! If you want some extra hold, we suggest using a salon grade hairspray to keep those curls in place!
