Whip everything up on the day that you are intending to use it as this one won’t keep, place on dry or damp hair and leave on for 20-30 minutes, it’s best to wrap a towel around the hair to help it stay put or clip up so it’s out of the way. When rinsing out use lukewarm water to remove as we need to be mindful of the eggs.
