STEP 25:
Using a medium boar bristle brush and medium heat, start your blow dry at the center top base to create lift and volume. Keep the air flow concentrated with the cuticle and not against. This will smooth, shine and dry the hair without creating frizz.

STEP 26:
Continue your round brush blow-dry throughout the rest of the head. Starting at the base first then moving to the midshaft and ends. Over-direct the hair straight up and towards you for smoothness and body.
