How Do I Use SKIMDO Original Cream?

SKIMDO Original Cream was designed to work best with finger twisting method seen in our tutorial video here. Work the product into wet hair after shampooing and conditioningIt can also prep the hair for flat-braiding and two-strand twisting, as well as blow-drying. It is excellent on hair pieces, and wigs made from real hair or false hair. It is wonderful used as a 'dry-conditioner' neat, between washes as a deodorising refresher. Men love to use it in their beards.


How Much SKIMDO Original Cream should I use?

This depends on how thick or/and long your hair is. The gel-cream is very concentrated, so start with 2 or 3 pumps and work through from the ends upwards to the root. Repeat until every strand of hair is coated. If you have thin or fine hair, start with 1 or 2 pumps and see how you go. Although the product is not greasy, it is medium weight and has a natural hold so baby steps are better. You will know if you have used too much product, as the hair will feel hard and possibly look flakey. If this happens, just spray generously with water and brush through with a tangle teaser. Then give it a quick wipe downwards from the root, with an old t-shirt NOT a towel.


How often should I use SKIMDO Original Cream?

SKIMDO Original Cream was designed to give freedom from daily hair-styling by holding curls in flexible suspension for up to a week.. It was designed to be used once a week, however this can depend on your lifestyle. It was designed to withstand sweat and light rain, however your personal preference or curl texture may mean that you use it every 4 days or so.
