A Round Brush is responsible for some of the prettiest waves ever but can prove a source of distress for some if not used correctly. We get it—brushing, curling, and drying hair all at the same time is hard! On the other side, mastering this technique could be the answer to the perfect at-home blowout—and that’s definitely enough to make us learn how to use a round brush.
You can start with a few of the tips below.
The perfect tool to achieve volume You want curls? You reach for a curling iron. Straight hair? The straightener is your go-to. But for volume, the round brush is where it’s at. Not to forget the shape of the brush adds shine and a bend to the end of the hair by shaping and polishing the cuticle.
Detangle While you’re in the shower, we suggest using a wide-tooth/ detangling comb, to detangle your hair. Always start at the bottom of the hair and work your way up.
Dry your locks a little before picking up the brush If you’re looking to save time, rough-drying your hair until it’s 50-60 percent dry, and then going in with the round brush to create your blowout and close the cuticles is sure to help. To begin section off hair and clip it. Before you start blow-drying each section, ensure it’s completely detangled so that you get a smooth finish.
Work on small sections While it may be tempting to pick up as much hair as possible on the brush, doing this will actually prolong your blow-drying process, because it’s extremely difficult to get the heat of the blow dryer to evenly smooth all the hair in one section. It’s also one of the biggest causes of your hair getting caught in the brush! To avoid this, pick up sections that are not larger than the size of your brush. Another secret to mastering this technique is to grip your hair with the round brush using a little bit of tension.
Keep your dryer nozzle parallel to the hair One of the hardest parts about at-home blowout is juggling all the tools and figuring out how to hold them in your hands, are we right? We suggest, your blow-dryer’s nozzle should always be parallel to your hair rather than perpendicular, which can cause split ends. This will work to polish the hair and close the cuticle. To create volume, begin by blow-drying the hair up (remember, that nozzle needs to be parallel) and then out and down (again with the nozzle parallel).
Switch up your heat settings
The other thing that needs to change consistently throughout the process is the setting of your blow-dryer. High heat and high air may seem like the best choice, but unless you’re a professional, using only that combination can leave you with a frizzy, tangled mess. Around your hairline, turn the settings down to medium (or low if you have curly hair), and rely on the tension you’re creating with the brush to smooth out the hair. Otherwise, you could end up over-drying that delicate hair, which makes your tresses incredibly hard to work with.
Blast with cool air
Once you complete a section and while the hair is still wrapped around the brush, turn your heat setting down for a cool blast of air. This will help your hair hold its shape, seal the cuticle, and prevent frizz. (Hot air forms your hair; cool air sets the shape.) Although this might seem like an added, unnecessary step, skip it and your results won’t last as long.
Hope you’ve now finally figured out where you’ve been going wrong all these years and are now ready to use your round brush correctly!
