Dealing with Temperature and Repair Tips

Heat damage is a common concern when using hot styling tools. However, the B.R.U.S.H 30/40 heats up to 356°F, a temperature effective for styling while still protecting hair from damage.

  1. Limit Exposure: Avoid holding the brush on one section of hair for too long. Glide the B.R.U.S.H 30/40 through your hair continuously to distribute heat evenly and minimize damage.
  2. Regular Breaks: Give your hair a break from heat styling occasionally. Use alternative methods like braiding or bun styles that don’t require heat.

Repair Tips

  1. Deep Conditioning Treatments: Incorporate deep conditioning masks or treatments into your hair care routine. Look for products with ingredients like Macadamia oil, Argan oil and Keratin which are also found in the B.R.U.S.H 30/40.
  2. Trim Regularly: Regular trims help get rid of split ends and damaged hair, promoting healthier growth.
  3. Hydrating Products: Use shampoos and conditioners that are designed to hydrate and repair heat-damaged hair.
  4. Avoid Additional Heat: Limit the use of other heat styling tools while your hair is recovering. If necessary, use the lowest heat setting possible.

How to Avoid Tangles and Snags

Tangles and snags can be frustrating, especially when you're in a rush. Here's how to keep your hair smooth and tangle-free while using the B.R.U.S.H 30/40.

  1. Brush Beforehand: Always detangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush before using the hot round brush.
  2. Section Your Hair: Divide your hair into small, manageable sections. This makes it easier to work through your hair without causing tangles.
  3. Smooth Motions: Use smooth, continuous motions when styling. Start at the roots and glide the B.R.U.S.H 30/40 down to the ends to prevent snags.
  4. Avoid Overloading: Don’t overload the brush with too much hair at once. Smaller sections ensure each strand gets equal attention and reduces the chance of tangling.
  5. Conditioning: Use a leave-in conditioner or detangling spray to help your hair stay smooth and manageable throughout the styling process.

We've all had those days when our hair doesn't turn out quite as expected. Here’s how to fix common styling mistakes with the B.R.U.S.H 30/40.

Fixing Flat Hair

  1. Volume Boost: To add volume, focus on lifting your roots. Place the B.R.U.S.H 30/40 at the roots and lift upwards while rotating the brush.
  2. Backcomb: Gently backcomb the roots before using the brush for added lift and fullness.
  3. Products: Use volumizing mousse or spray on your roots before styling to give your hair extra body.

Fixing Over-Processed Hair

  1. Moisture Treatments: If your hair feels over-processed or dry, apply a moisturizing treatment like a leave-in conditioner or oil treatment.
  2. Cool Down: Let your hair cool in the desired shape before brushing it out to set the style.
  3. Restyle: If a section of hair is over-processed, re-moisturize and gently restyle using the B.R.U.S.H 30/40.
  4. Avoid Repeating: Don’t repeatedly go over the same section of hair. Give your hair a break to prevent further damage.
