      You will find that your hair is very straight and silky.

      Here it is step by step:

      1. Spritz Dry, Clean Hair with Milk, Comb it through, hair should be saturated.
      2. Wait 20 Minutes for it to dry Naturally
      3. Jump in the shower- DO NOT WASH YOUR HAIR.
      4. Apply Conditioner Sparingly, Rinse it out
      5. Get out of shower and Towel dry or blow dry your hair, combing it out as you go.
      6. Voila, Straight Silky smooth hair.

      no. if you follow the directions, your hair will not have any smell.


      2. How long will the effects last?


      until the next time you wash your hair.

        What about shampoo? Won't your hair be dirty and greasy?

        Most shampoos actually strip the natural protein called "keratin" from your hair. it's essentially like taking enamel off of teeth, very damaging. it's actually healthier for hair to just be conditioned daily and genuinely washed once or twice a week to allow your hair to recover. The milk basically acts as a moisturizer and anti-frizzing gel in one since milk has fats in it that help the hair out.
        and to yaj11471, it can be used on African American hair. you'll probably still have the curls, but at least it's cheaper than going out and buying anti-frizzing creams.
        hope this comment helped!

        I would be thrilled if this works for my frizzy hair! Do you actually rinse the milk out before you condition?

        The instructions read "regular milk" so I would say whole.

        The instructions do not say if you are to rinse your hair either after letting milk sit and before putting conditioner in, OR after you put conditioner in or both?

        Yes they do, they say:
        1. Spray your hair with mil, wait 20 minutes
        2. Jump in the shower
        3. Condition Hair LIGHTLY and RINSE IT OUT.
        4. Towel or blow dry hair normally.

        This was a total waste of time and milk for me! And I followed the directions exactly as they are shown. Hope anyone else gets better results.

        We use almond milk here because of the chemicals and added junk in milk.
        Now it straightens hair?

        That is great!

      Thanks for this information. This annoys me also. Since I only have a notebook, it also either delays loading page or freezes computer. Thanks again.
