SECTION THE HAIR TO MAKE IT MORE MANAGEABLE

Since you are going to be blow drying your hair, you are going to want to section it to make it more manageable and allow for a quicker and easier dry. Ray Christopher sectioned Haddish’s hair into four parts, but if you have thicker hair or Type 4C hair, don’t be afraid to turn four parts into six or eight parts. This is probably the most important part of the process and one you need the most patience to achieve. Christopher used the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer ($399.99, bedbathandbeyond.com) with the Dyson Y-attachment, coupled with the Suave Professional Natural Hair Cream Detangler Spray ($4.99, walmart.com) to “properly and gently comb through and blow the hair until there is an achieved dryness necessary to move to the next step in styling.” While the detangler is affordable, we are aware that the Dyson Hair Dryer is an investment, if it’s too much for your pockets at the moment, try our suggestion from our Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide, the Bombay Hair Blow Dryer ($100.00, bombayhair.com), costs half the price (less than half the price, it’s currently on sale for $60.00 and you get free shipping when you use the code JAN40), comes with the Y-attachment and a diffuser. Yes, please! Also, don’t forget to use a heat protectant on your hair, beauties, especially if you are not used to wearing your curls straight. One of my personal favorites on the market if your hair needs something a little heavier is Sachajuan Styling Cream ( $16.50, allbeauty.com); however, I find that the tried and true Chi 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray works well on all hair types and textures.
