1. Shampoo and condition your hair

You should plop with freshly washed hair. So shampooing and conditioning is the first step in this activity. You can use a shampoo and conditioner suitable for your hair type. First, thoroughly clean your scalp with shampoo and apply conditioner to your hair.

2. Rinse and apply leave-in and styling product

Wring out excess water in the hair with your hands. It is not needed to use a towel to dry the hair. You should have wet hair but not dripping.

Then apply a leave-in conditioner. Make sure the styling products you are using for the hair are free of chemicals and toxins. 

3. Lay a t-shirt or the microfiber towel on the bed

Lay the t-shirt or the microfiber towel on a flat surface like a bed. The end having sleeves must be closer to you. An oversized soft cotton towel is ideal for this task. Never use a standard cotton towel as it tends to absorb too much water. 

4. Gather your curls

5. Wrap the t-shirt behind your head

Help the fabric fit snugly around your hair by folding it once or twice. Then tie up the loose ends. Hold each side or sleeve and cross them behind your neck. Make the final knot after wrapping them back around the forehead. Now the fabric is well fitted. If you find any hanging fabric after lifting up the hair, tuck it under the sides.

6. Let hair dry

Now, you need to wait until the hair dries. You should wait at least 20 minutes to get good results. If you have more time, then leave the t-shirt on overnight.
