3 Simple Steps for brush styling Curly and Wavy hair

Styling curly and wavy hair can be a straightforward process when you follow these three simple steps:

1. Preparation:

  • Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair. Use sulfate-free and hydrating products to maintain the natural moisture of your hair.

  • Gently towel-dry your hair, removing excess water. Avoid vigorous rubbing, as it can lead to frizz.

  • Apply a leave-in conditioner or a curl-enhancing product to help define your curls and waves. Work it through your hair evenly, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends.

2. Brushing:

  • Use a wide-toothed comb or a specialized detangling brush with wide bristles. These are designed to minimize breakage and prevent the disruption of curl patterns.

  • Start by combing through your hair from the tips to the roots. This helps detangle any knots without causing stress to your curls.

  • After detangling, divide your hair into sections to make the styling process more manageable.

  • Begin styling your curls with a gentle scrunching motion. To enhance your curls and waves, cup your hands under the hair and lift it toward your scalp. Continue scrunching your hair in sections to encourage the natural curl pattern.

3. Final Touches:

  • If your hair is on the wavy side, you can allow it to air dry. For those with tighter curls, you may want to use a diffuser attachment on your hairdryer, but be sure to use it on a low or medium heat setting to prevent frizz. Keep the dryer moving to avoid concentrating heat in one spot.

  • Avoid touching your hair too much while it's drying to prevent frizz. Let your hair air dry or use the diffuser until it's mostly dry.

  • Once your hair is dry, you can use a lightweight hair spray or serum to add shine and hold if desired. Apply a small amount to your hands, rub them together, and then gently scrunch your hair.

  • Resist the urge to brush your hair again after it's dry, as this can disrupt the curl pattern and create frizz.

These simple steps can help you brush and style your curly and wavy hair while maintaining its natural texture and minimizing frizz. Remember that curly and wavy hair is unique, and what works best for you may vary, so don't be afraid to experiment with different products and techniques to find what suits your hair type and preferences.
