Using your fingers gently apply the mixture to your hair. It is important that your hair is damp and freshly cleaned. You should be working your way up from the roots to the tips. If there are any areas of your hair which are dry or damaged, you should spend a lot of time on those.

Put a plastic cap on. You will want to leave the mixture in your hair for half an hour. You can then wash it out. Condition your hair with a good leave-in conditioner and your hair should look fabulous.
