2. Detangle your hair

You need to detangle your hair for the perfect natural hair blowout. I first go in with a wide-tooth comb, and then I use the detangling brush for the smaller tangles.

3. Blow dry your hair

The best brush for a natural hair blowout is this round Tangle Teezer detangling brush. It’s a game-changer for me as it’s the only round brush that can easily go through my thick hair. I also like how the bristles are designed on the brush; it’s perfect as it doesn’t pull out your hair or cause breakage.
