OMG I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! It makes my hair sooo soft!!! So after you wash your hair you apply this JUST TO THE ENDS of your hair. If you put this higher than your ears you WILL have greasy hair! Then normally i shave my legs or wash my body or something else too pass the time. You don't have to wait exactly 3 minutes. Normally i wait 2-5 minutes but you don't want to wait too long or your hair will get greasy. Then rinse it out. Your hair will be soooo soft! NOW GO EAT A CUPCAKE!
