Hot Brush How-To

  • Use on damp hair - Hot brushes do not have the drying power of regular blow dryers, so they should not be used on wet hair, only hair that is at least 80% dry to minimize damage and frizz.
  • Protect - Prep hair with a styling product that protects against heat and provides shine and hold.  Try Redken iron shape 11 thermal holding spray.
  • Section - Divide hair into 4-5 sections and secure with clips to help avoid brushing through the same hair multiple times, which prolongs styling time and compromises the health of the hair.
  • Brush - Heat to desired temperature and brush slowly from roots to ends. For extra volume, lift each section up and away from the head when gliding the brush down the section.
  • Curl - For curled ends, opt for a round hot brush versus a hot air paddle brush. Brush through to ends, wrap hair back around the barrel and roll brush up towards roots and hold for 5-10 seconds.  Then, press the cool button and wait a few seconds for the curl to cool before releasing.
  • Finish - Lock in volume and shine with a lightweight hairspray and apply serum to ends to tame.
