- Apply a lightweight smoothing polish and thermal protectant to damp hair.
- When hair is about 80 percent dry, use a round thermal brush to control hair during blow dry. Working with sections of hair at a time, wrap hair over the brush and slowly pull the brush downwards through hair, curling hair inwards near your hair ends. Remember, to hold the dryer at a downwards angle to hair. Repeat this step for your full head of hair. When you blow dry your front, face-framing layers, use the round brush to blow dry front layers back and away from the face. This is easiest done by bringing the front layers up, over your forehead while using the round brush to guide layers back away from your face.
- When hair is dry, use a flatiron, if needed, to enhance smoothness.
- Then, spritz the ends of hair with a finishing spray to hold style, and use your fingers to shape and style.
