How To Brush My Hair

  • For best results, it is recommended to use a wire brush.
  • Divide my hair into small sections and gently brush them one at a time. Make sure to brush out the tangles starting from the bottom of my hair and then moving up.
  • Mist my hair lightly with water from a spray bottle if you are having a hard time detangling it.
  • If I have wavy hair, be very gentle when brushing the ends, this will help preserve my curls.
  • For tight curls, finger style my hair. Separate a small section of my hair and work your fingers through it, twirling as you go.
  • For braided styles, tightly braiding my hair while damp will help control frizzy ends.
  • Avoid using styling products like gel or mousse, as this may damage my hair.
  • Avoid using a blow dryer, hot rollers, curling or straightening iron on my hair.
  • Brush hair in small sections
  • Keep hair away from extreme heat – including blow driers, hot rollers, curling irons or straighteners
