How to brush curly hair: A guide



1

Start with damp hair.

To begin with, you want to start with damp hair. 

Tip: Use a microfibre towel or cotton T-shirt to remove any excess moisture, as this will also help tame frizz-prone curls.

2

Moisturise.

Next, spritz your mane with a moisturising spray as a base to help detangle and prep your hair for additional products.

Spray the TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Hydrating Mist from root to tip to helping to smooth and condition your tresses, as well as give them the moisture boost they need!

3

Divide.

Now your strands are all prepped, you’re almost ready to begin brushing.

To make the whole process that much easier, divide your hair into manageable sections to suit your hair length and thickness.

Hair hack: Use your fingers to initially separate your curls as a way of pre-detangling. This will make the next step a little smoother…

4

Begin brushing.

Okay, let’s start brushing!

Take a wide-tooth comb, focusing on 1 section at a time, and gently detangle your hair from the tips to the roots.

Tip: If you hit any difficult to brush knots, be extra careful not to break the hair. Try applying more of the TRESemmé Hydrating Mist to provide extra slip if necessary.

5

Finish.

And now you’re all done! Finish off by styling your hair as desired and go show off those curls.
