After the application of the conditioner, you can dip your towel in the hot water and immerse it well. Carefully wring it and again, carefully place the towel onto your head. Make sure that the temperature if the water is agreeable to you since too hot water may cause nausea or other adverse effects. Be careful of being burned with water that is too hot. To achieve the best 360 waves, you must leave the warm towel around your head for approximately a couple of minutes.

During this couple of minutes where you have applied the warm towel onto your hair, make sure to apply some light pressure in to it for better application. You may then remove the warm towel from your head, and begin to brush your hair starting from the crown area. Brush your hair evenly and in the general direction that your hair grows.
The doo rag is used to achieve the beautiful 360 hair style by tying it around your head and leaving it for several hours. You may even do this procedure just before you sleep and leave the doo rag on while sleeping. You can repeat the process of setting the 360 waves a couple of times in a day. Make sure not to brush your hair once you remove the doo rag, just leave it be. It is also advisable to leave off wetting or shampooing the hair for at least a week. This will help set the hair better and will have more pronounced 360 waves.  Getting a haircut is a big no-no when trying to achieve 360 hair waves, a line up may be permissible but a hair cut may seem too much for your 360 waves hair style.
