Would this work on type 4 hair?

A woman with type 3 hair blows out her hair quite straight with a blow out cream and round brush and blow dryer.

I want to start using heat regularly on my hair, but only with a blow dryer and not a flat iron. But usually when I blow out my hair w/ either a comb attachment on a comb/denman brush it never gets this smooth, just huge. But I'm thinking if I use a thermal round brush I can get a smoother sleeker look.

My hair is 4a/4b.

    I've been dying to see if any type 4s have attempted this as well. I always see those brushes in the store but I pass them straight up because I imagine my hair getting tangled in them.

    I've seen this video before. My answer is I think so but with whatever tweaking needed for your individual hair.. It could be partly the product since she said she had never had that kind of results before. She said she usually does flatiron after. I rarely blowout my hair but one time I was experimenting while using a comb attachment and the highest heat setting my hair became very straight. This let me know I can get my hair straight from blowdrying however it felt horrible and later when I washed it that section was slow to revert so I never did it again. The thing with this video is I never see her detangle before starting to blowdry. I don't know about all that. My suggestion would be that you detangle before using the brush and dryer. First a wide tooth then a fine tooth. I only suggest the fine comb because when doing any kind of rollerset I have to do it on my hair or my hair will not give up its curl pattern. Plus with a thorough detangle maybe the roundbrush will be less likely to snag. I have been wanting to dry a blowout again so I can do some braidouts or bantu on it. Maybe I will try this product although I'm not a big CD fan. Kind of greasy but I need something to maintain moisture during direct heat.
    This is a video of a lady using a roundbrush blowdryer all in one and her hair gets super straight.

    Don't do it lol!

    From my personal experience. My hair was 4a/b. said was because while visiting my folks, some dominicans gave me a blow dry with a round bristle brush. Never mind the stank looks they gave my "mal, negrita bonita" whatevs hair( that's another convo). Anyway the stylist proceeded to burn my hair into submission, so much so that afterwards everyone asked me if my hair was relaxed.

    This was my first blowout with a round bristle brush on all natural hair. It got my hair so straight that some parts have yet to revert and this is two washes later. Some of my roots are Bone straight!

    Slowly I'm cutting away the heat damage and nursing my now 3c/4a hair back to health. If anyone has any suggestions, please share them!

    Thanks!

    I use a ceramic paddle brush. It makes a world a difference. The comb attachment is crap. At first i was using the round brush but the paddle brush is much gentler on my hair. When im done drying my hair, my hair is half the size of if use the paddle bruah over the comb

    I think that is typical of Dominican blowouts and not the brush. They tend to use a ton of heat

    IKR From the yt videos I've seen there is no way in the world I would get a Dominican Blowout and allow so much heat on my hair. It would be a heat damaged mess.

    Seriously all that heat that was coming out of my head was ridiculous
    And then she wanted to follow up with a flatiron when it was already very straight. Like there was no kink or anything...

    This video doesn't look so bad. This is the second time seeing that brush. Does anyone know where to get it? It's round but looks like a mix of bristle and nylon?

  • scrillsscrills Posts: 6,700Registered Users
    I use something like this. I can check the brand when I get home.

    I plan on growing straight next week. maybe I can do one half one way and the other half the other way and post it so you can see it.

    Yes please! Post your results. This may be a better method than the round brush blowout.

    This looks like a good idea, Maybe we can try with a revlon paddle brush or a modified denman. It looks like a new take on the tension method, except you're holding the hair tight with the brush working from ends to root. Also saw this in an article on here!

    Blow dryer with medium to high heat and tension could = heat damage. Your hair will likely be healthier if you applied heat protectant to wet hair, air-dried it in chiny bumps, bantu-knots or twists, then brushed it out with a denman and flat-ironed from there. That is what I do most of the time to avoid heat damage with constant blow-drying. I have blow-dried my hair on four separate occasions, and one of those times was in an upscale salon. My 4a hair was never able to get as straight as if I had flat-ironed it and I also got heat damage two of the four times. I never get heat damage when I just flat-iron from a twist-out/bantu-knot out.

    If you do Blow-dry:

    • Choose a blow-dryer that is under 1500 watts (best for fragile, textured hair) and that has ionic technology with tourmaline and/or ceramic material. These are specifications that are best for reducing frizz, locking in moisture and protecting from heat-damage. I have and like the Sedu travel dryer and it also doubles as a diffuser for curls.

    • Double Deep Condition before blow-drying. Sometimes called the WCC method, you should condition after deep conditioning to make sure your hair has maximum moisture. Heat damage is always caused by high heat + dry hair. I like to use Sally's GVP Balm, Any Giovanni conditioner (50:50 is my fav) and mix in Wild Growth Oil.

    • Use a natural boar bristle brush whether round, paddle or flat. They help smooth the hair alone or with heat. Denman, Mason Pearson and Earth Therapeutics are all great brands.

    • Follow your blow dry with a setting lotion and roller set, pin curl or bantu-knot to further smooth the hair then a few hours later (or next day) follow that with a wrap to reduce volume and give you a straighter look. My favorite setting lotion is Wrap n' Tap by Lotta Body. Good luck.

    One side with comb, the other with a paddle brush

    It does take more time with the brush

    does your hair feel dry? what li did you use?

  • scrillsscrills Posts: 6,700Registered Users
    I purposely didnt use anything so the comparison would be more precise. Normally i would use a leave-in (but i forgot today) and at this point cantu shea butter's oil sheen. Love that stuff for a flat iron. Makes it even straighter. My friend had s9meone use it in her her hair. It was a game changer for me.

    So with product it would be straighter but not as straight as in the video

    I went on the CD page to look at this line and saw the video was on their site. I hadn't realized it was a sponsored video. Anywho, looking at some of the products have ingredients that are no for my hair. Especially the shampoo. The price of the dc was ridic. However, the blowout cream looked okay. I went to Ulta tonight and bought it. Unfortunately couldn't use the coupon because CD doesn't allow it. It was $19 which is pricey but since I know it's not something I would even do once a month it will last awhile. I also bought a round brush from Revlon since I love their paddle brush. Maybe Sunday I will try it out. I'm going to use this SM JBCO leave in that was given to me because it's supposed to be for heat syled hair. I will post what my hair looks like right after but I will likely roll or braid it after because I like texture.

    Ok. I'm inpatient. I hate even showing this because I only half butt did it. I did a light shampoo on a small section. Left dc in for maybe five minutes. Bad I know. Then I applied my lace moisturizer, my sm JBCO leave in. Dot of baobab oil and dot of blow cream.
    I tried the round brush but I suck at it. Kept getting it stuck. So def detangle big time. I switched to my conair Infiniti pro which has attachment. Much easier. I'm happy my hair is soft and not feeling like straw. My hair dried quick too. I think done the right way I can get good results with a stretched hair then rolled or twisted.


    PS. My hair is very uneven because of hair loss that grew back at different times but since I don't wear my hair straight I don't worry it. I think people who get those even cuts will have a better look if they go to wear their's straight.

    Can't wait to see it. I found it at Ulta but there was no sale at mine. The shampoo has silicones and I wonder if that affected the video lady's results. I can't do dimethicone.

    . I don't understand having silicones in a shampoo. NC should do an article. That dc was like $30ish I think. I have tried hair milk a few times but my hair doesn't like it. Doesn't like SM milk either. too heavy. I'm thinking of getting a doll head to practice my blow drying on. I really suck with the brush. I don'tthink my little cousins would let me practice on them lol. I hardly ever blow dried my hair when I was relaxed. And I've rarely done it natural.
