Steps to Use a Hair Straightening Brush
- First, you need to shampoo and condition your hair with the shampoo and conditioner of your choice. A straightening conditioner and shampoo is highly recommended.
- Second, carefully apply a small amount of straightening balm to the middle and ends of your hair. Be very careful not to get this on your roots as this will make your hair heavy and make it look oily. Make sure you use a wide tooth comb to comb through your damp hair. Continue until there are no tangles left.
- Third, your hair must be dry to use the hair straightening brush. Use your hair dryer to finish drying your hair, making sure it is now completely dry. Note: make sure to aim down the hair shaft as this helps prevent frizz.
- Fourth, Use hair clips to separate your hair into 3 equal sections, while leaving a one-inch section free at the nape of your neck.
- Fifth, it’s now time for the thermal protection spray. Make sure you are holding this spray one inch from the first section of hair you put up. Lightly spritz your hair. Continue repeating this step in every section of your hair before you begin running the brush through your hair. This is a very important step that should not be skipped. The thermal protection spray helps to protect your hair from harshness when you use the brush.
- Finally, it is now time to begin straightening your hair. Simply take the brush and glide it through each section of your hair, just as you would a normal brush. Continue following the above process but remember to use the thermal protection spray in each section to protect your hair from damage caused by the heat of the brush. Start with one section and then work through each section.
Lastly, once you have finished straightening your hair, be sure to apply a drop of smoothing balm into the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and then begin rubbing the product through your hair. Make sure you pay special attention to the mid-lengths and ends of the hair. This will help to tame any frizziness.
