Years ago, my flat iron and I were an inseparable duo. I would mash my naturally wavy (nice way of saying frizzy) strands through the metal plates of my Chi every day. Religiously. My hair was straight and sleek, but dear lord was it damaged. I’ve found the key to eliminating the flat iron from my life is with an at-home blow out using a boar bristle round brush. Specifically, the 2 1/2-inch Marilyn Tuxedo Pro Brush, a hairdresser favorite. The bristles have the perfect amount of grip to add body and smooth out strands, plus the ceramic core heats up to lock in curl.
