Directions from packaging:

Step 1: Completely cleanse hair withshampoo. Step 2: apply inner-active leave-in conditioner. Wait 20 minutes. Step 3: Blow dry until hair completely dry. Step 4: Flat iron for desired results

Warnings from packaging:

Caution: Keep put of reach of children. Never flat iron damp hair. Do not use flat iron if hair is breaking or splitting. Do not use when scalp is irritated, injured or scratched. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact with eyes occurs, flush eyes immediately with water. If irritation persists, contact a physician. Hair burns, keep away from sparks, open flames or excessive heat. Heat setting advisory: flat iron temperature is important to achieve desired results. Read instructions carefully and choose the right temperature for you. Higher flat iron temperature gives longer lasting straightening while lower flat iron temperature allows for faster return to natural curl pattern.
