Get ready

First, wash your hair with Dove Dermacare Scalp Soothing Moisture Shampoo and Dove Dermacare Scalp Soothing Moisture Conditioner. This duo keeps your scalp dandruff-free without drying out your hair.

Keep the headscarf in place

Take a few bobby pins and place each one discreetly on various points of your hair to hold the headband scarf. Then, smoothen your hair with a fine-toothed comb to untangle strands. If you want to make your hair smoother, apply a pea-sized amount of Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream to your hair to tame frizz and flyaways.
