Brushing & Styling

  • After washing the hair, towel dry well, blot with towel (avoiding scrubbing motions with towel) until the hair feels damp, but not dripping wet. All products are applied from the ends to the root, making sure your are evenly distributing the product and scrunching it into the hair. Use a cream based corseting gel product that has a subtle hold factor. Use a generous amount since you will need more product to compensate for the additional hair. Next, layer a piecing fiber paste into the hair. These products will set the curl with a medium hold, allowing the hair more separation.
  • It is now time to style. You may use jaw clips to clip up a section on the top of the head or crown. This will give more volume in that area. Let air dry for about 15-20 minutes: You may also flip your head up-side-down, or tilt your head on each side.
  • Begin to diffuse the hair with high heat and low pressure, this will cut down on frizz and enhance curl. Put large amounts of hair in the diffuser working it in small circular motions. Do this until the hair is 50 % dry.
  • At this time you can work a large hand-full of lightweight mousse from the ends to the base, which will enhance curl and promote softness. Diffuse until 90% – 100% dry.
