After washing your hair and applying the thermal effective protective spray, blow dry it with a blow dryer. “Ideally use a boar bristle brush that is easy to tame thick hair and brings out the hair’s shine”, Claudia Zuko recommends. Finish with a straightener to smooth out all the frizz and add more shine. Then draw a line – in the middle or on the side according to your desires Using a wide tooth comb. Its depth should be about 6 cm (from the top of the forehead to the middle of the hair). From the end of the parting, now part from ear to ear. This way you get two strips of hair at the front of the face. Isolate the rest of the hair with pliers.

This is where it all happens: applying a styling product, such as gel or wax, On the two locks to be ironed. Distribute the substance well from root to tip.
