Step 1: Start With Wet Hair, and Work In Moisturizer
Per the hundreds of TikTok tutorial instructions, I started with wet, clean hair and applied my hair treatment of choice. In this case, I used Ouai's Thick Hair Treatment Masque ($38). Once I'd distributed the product all over with my fingers, it was time to dive in with the brush.
My hair is so uncooperative somedays, I swear it has a vendetta against me. Of course, my hair-care regimen isn't exactly the most conducive for dealing with frizz and waves - and by that I mean I frequently commit the crime of running a paddle brush through it and calling it a day. About 20 minutes into a TikTok rabbit hole, I discovered the Denman hairbrush, aka the tool people swear would make me love my hair again.
Created to define waves and curls, the D3 Original Styler 7 Row Brush looked exactly like something my hair needed. So I quickly added it to my cart and set out to give it a try for myself.
