Getting a sleek plait with Denman

Morning my Beauties!

In order for your hair to look good, its important to look after it with not just the right products but the right tools.  It's a shame it only took me 25 years to figure out!

Why would you want a sleek plait?

Easy - to avoid heat styling.  Even with hair protector, it really does ultimately damage the ends of the hair so where possible, if you can, natural is best.  I know, I know - natural is a painful word. It conjures images of  'out of control' and 'frizz' but that needn't be the case.

 I love wearing a sleek plait as its completely natural, giving my hair time to recover from the straightening during the week, as well as keeping it out of the way, under control and ultimately looking good. 

The Tools of the Trade - 

Achieving a sleek plait
  • After washing your hair and detangling it gently blow dry your hair running your fingers through it to remove larger knots.
  • When dry use the Denman porcupine brush with the nylon quill to remove all smaller knots.  This brush is fantastic for thicker hair given its paddle shape and plastic needles which effortlessly pass through the hair while the bristles add shine.
  • Next using the Denman boar bristle brush which is designed to add shine gently go over your hair again and sweep it to the side with this brush, gently sweeping any stray hairs together.
  • Then, gently plait from your chin length down to the ends.
  • To fiinsih, brush your fringe with the boar brush to add shine and sweep it behind your ears. 

These two Denman brushes are a fantastic duo for detangling and for adding shine to your hair giving a great sleek look to your 'do'.  I love having them in my collection and I'm sure they'll last as long as some of my other denman brushes which I've had over 10 years!

I hope you guys found it helpful, let me know if you have tried any of them out before!!
