Curly hair saviour

I have curly hair with a mind of its own. It started from a young age.  Throughout the years I’ve learned that I can only detangle and brush my hair in the shower, otherwise I look like this:

Not a fan of overusing heat styling tools everyday on my hair, I prefer to leave my curls au natural. Great in theory, not so great when they start looking a little more this:

May have spent a really long time looking for a photo with frizz in check!

But all of that changed when I discovered the Scunci Detangling Comb.

The shape of this comb and large separation between the teeth means that I can brush through my dry hair without disturbing the curls too much. A light spray of dry shampoo (to add volume) or let’s be honest, in my case it’s usually some serum/smoothing cream to reduce the frizz and I’m good to go.

I loved this comb so much I bought another one (at $5.95AUD why not!?) and added it to my pro hairstyling kit. During session styling, I use it to comb out curls when I want a really soft finish like this.

Yep, I’d definitely found a winner.

I got curious about this Australian brand and decided to see what other brushes they made.

I discovered they make a WHOLE range of brushes called Brushology.

I like the below combination for straightening curly hair. Detangle with detangling comb, prep hair with styling products, blow-dry with the paddle brush and run straightening irons through with the straightening brush. Never used a brush like the straightening brush before. It’s like a clamp for the hair and gives you a really sleek finish when used with straightening irons.

For a sleek voluminous blowdry I prep hair with styling product, use the XLarge Volume brush with hairdryer then smooth the style and dress the hair with the Cushion Brush. Used the backcombing brush to backcomb the crown and give the style a bit of v-v-volume.
