We will prove to you with the following steps, that a beautiful wavy brushing is within the reach of all. No need to go to the salon to get these beautiful waves. It is possible to do it alone at home, and it couldn't be easier. Instructions for use (and its advice)!
For your brushing to hold well, it is important to choose the right products and care (shampoo, conditioner, mask, spray, etc.) before starting to style. The ideal is to use a shampoo and a conditioner first that do not weigh down the lengths. Once the washing step is finished, wring out your hair, then use a heat-protective spray. This kind of care is essential if we want to preserve our hair that suffers from the heat of our heating devices (hairdryer, straightener, curling iron, etc.). We recommend the Curl Hold Spray maintenance spray from ghd. In addition to protecting the hair fiber from any heat source up to 220 ° C, this hair treatment allows better hold of waves and curls. In short, the perfect spray to then achieve a wavy effect brushing.

After using this thermoprotective product, dry your hair and brush to get rid of all your knots. Then separate your hair in half, a left side, then a right side. This will help you know which strands to curl, and in which direction.
It's time to start curling your lengths. You can use all kinds of curling irons or straighteners to achieve a wavy effect brushing; however, to have tried different devices, we recommend that you use a wide cylindrical looper with the clamp. Our favorite? The Single-pass Curl model from T3 offers pretty round and plump curls.

You will therefore curl your hair strand after strand. Delimit the first section of hair (if too thin, not too thick) from your parting to the bottom of the head. Slide the tips of this section through the clamp of your curling iron, leaving about 3 inches of hair-free - so that you do not curl the section all the way. Then turn the looper handle, out of your face, to wrap the rest of the strand. Don't climb too high; stay about 20 centimeters from the roots. Hold the iron for ten seconds, then let go of the curled strand. Scrunch it in your hand to cool it.
Now that your hair is fully curled, just break it off. Take a flat brush (or a wide-tooth comb depending on the desired result) and run it through your hair from roots to ends. And here's the result! Your wavy effect brushing is finally over... or almost.
