1 cup hot water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp hair gel (I used my Royal Spa hair gel)
I mixed it well and then threw it in my spray bottle. Lilly says that she usually puts this on towel dried hair at night, twists it up, and lets it dry until she takes it out the next morning and styles it. I shower in the morning, so what I ended up doing was putting it in right before I went to bed (when I wasn't going to wash my hair in the morning, obviously) and then letting it sit all night.
Application: Like I said, you could put it in towel dried hair or damp hair. Honestly, dry hair would probably work too. I then roughly parted my hair down the middle and worked on one side at a time. I divided each side into three sections. One at a time, I sprayed them and twisted them. As I discovered, make sure to twist the section closest to your face away from your face, otherwise it looks jankity. The rest of the sections can be twisted either way (and you should do both ways throughout as evenly as possible). You can then just pull all three together and put a rubber band in the bottom so that they don't untwist. Next time I think I'm going to twist them into a loose bun so that the ends get a little curled too. Just repeat the twists on the other side. I then slept on them all night. In the morning, after my shower, I blow dried them a tiny bit to make sure they were fully dry. Then I just let it out and ran my fingers through it.
Here are two pictures, one from the beginning of the day and one from near the end of the day.
