Natural Wavy Hair

Do you have a natural wave in your hair but can never get it to sit the way you want it too? Well today we are going to tell you how to get a natural wave in the hair when blowdrying.

1. Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner and rinse thoroughly.

2. Detangle your wet hair using a Denman DC11 Detangling comb (USA). By using this comb on wet hair you will not damage or break the hair shaft. If you have a lot of knots in your hair, detangle from the bottom working your way up.

3. Apply some mousse to the hair and begin to blowdry the hair with the diffuser attachment. Gently gather the hair into the diffuser and hold for a few seconds. Sometimes the diffuser can get hot so we recommend a low heat setting,

4. Once the hair is about 80% dried, apply some sea salt texturising spray and finish blowdrying the hair with the diffuser.

5. Gently scrunch the hair and finish with hairspray.
