Looking to get a frizz-free super defined curls for your wash n go? Girl I got you!!!
So I recently bought a Denman brush after years of avoiding it! I know I know I’m super late to the party but hey, like my mom always says it’s better late than never!
I noticed this was a styling essential for many naturally curly Youtubers but I figured I already had enough tools but boi was I wrong!
I love trying different hairstyles and techniques so I bought this Denman brush to experiment with my wash n go’s and to try out a different detangling method. Let me tell you… I was not disappointment!
How to use:
On wet hair, smooth the leave-in conditioner in (using praying hand method)
Add moisturiser and rake it in with your fingers
Divide hair into sections and smooth down your styling product (I’ve used Camille rose curl maker but you can also use any gel)
Take sections & brush starting from the bottom of your curls to prevent snags & breakage
Shake the sections & watch your curl pattern appear
Scrunch using a Tshirt & air dry/diffuse ( I left my hair to air dry for a few hours to avoid too much frizz)
Separate curls/ pick and fluff for volume
Why you need a Denman brush for super defined curls!
After trying this Denman brush for the last few months – I can officially say I cannot go back to my comb because of how fantastic my wash & go’s have become! Warning: you will incur shrinkage!!
I’ve always preferred raking my fingers through my curls after adding my leave-in conditioner as you have seen many times in my wash-n -go tutorials because it distributes the products evenly, removes knots & helps to form several individual curl clumps instead of few thick ones.
However, I still don’t get the same shine & definition that using a Denman brush has!
My curls are super defined & remain knot-free longer -this is important because the longer my curls get, the more prone they are to frizz & tangles.
The only negative to using a Denman brush is the level of shrinkage! Girl… the shrinkage is real! I would advise you to keep this in mind before using a Denman brush for super defined curls. of course, they are many techniques on youtube to help with this.
Have you used a Denman for your wash n go’s or do you prefer to keep it strictly for detangling purposes?
Would love to hear your thoughts.
