You can count on us to help you figure out the best ways to treat your hair on a daily basis especially when it comes to knowing how to brush curly hair.

Read on for our tutorial on how to brush curly hair:

1

Start with damp hair.

To begin with, you’ll want to start your style with damp hair. We suggest washing your strands with TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Shampoo and TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Conditioner.

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

 

2

Moisturize.

Next, spritz your mane with a moisturizing 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, helping 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-toothed 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 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 (maybe finish with a hairspray, like TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1) and go show off those curls.
