I apply the butter to the scalp while im braiding and After im done braiding the client down, I spray the clients braids and scalp with the mist spray. I soak the braids with the mist if they have really dry hair and let the mist air dry. If they have normal hair a couple sprays will get the job done. Remember this product is not heavy at all and it will not weigh down the weave. You wont even notice you put it in.
