Step 1 is rubbing this thick treatment onto your scalp and throughout your hair. Step 2 is putting on an essence shower cap and then massaging it all for a few minutes. Leave it on for at least ten minutes and then rinse clean. The website suggests shampooing it out, but I just rinsed and my hair is still shiny and bouncy. I used this while I was taking a long shower/bath combo so the heat would help the treatment absorb into my hair and skin.
I am definitely buying this again. At 600 yen, I can't make it a habit but I plan on making this a once a month deep conditioning for my hair. I love it when random purchases turn out to be fabulous instead of waste of money.
