Repeat the process because hair sprays and mousse tend to be stubborn. It is important that you need lather and rinse twice to make sure there is no residue left behind.
• Follow up with a leave-in conditioner and blow-dry. Set the blow dryer on medium or low heat. Comb your dry hair with a wide-toothed comb. If you didn’t use a leave-in conditioner, apply a bit of oil on the scalp to make sure it doesn’t dry up.
• After three days, wash your hair again.
