Just because you missed your holiday this year doesn’t mean your hair has to.

Hot on the heels of Part 1 in our Hershesons Great (H)air Drying Academy series, this week’s ‘natural set’ technique brings out your easy-breezy natural movement – without the need for high heat styling.


What are the benefits?

Natural movement – not flat, lifeless lengths.

No frizz or unwanted fuzzy bits.

✓ Extra morning time to eat/sleep/ponder the meaning of life.

✓ Less heat damage, so you can improve the overall condition of your hair.


Who does it work on?

Curly girls, you’re already pros at this. Everyone else – no matter what your age or hair type – get ready to recover your mornings and natural hair movement with the simple technique below.


The A-list references... 


What do you need?

Knot My Problem Brush, Almost Everything Cream and a hair dryer with a low heat setting and/or diffuser. You might want to add some Kérastase Densifique Densimorphose Mousse, if you fancy creating more body.


How to do it:

  • Comb soaking wet, post-shower hair through with our Knot My Problem Brush.
  • Run 1-2 pumps of Almost Everything Cream through your mid-lengths and ends.
  • Do NOT wind your hair into a towel. All that humidity is a recipe for full-on frizz.
  • Instead, squeeze excess water out from the hair – and blot (don’t rub) with a microfibre towel to reduce moisture.
  • Use your fingers to find your natural parting.
  • Then create a ‘natural set’ – as popularised by iconic ‘70s stylist, Christiaan. Wind sections of your hair into buns – the more buns, the more movement you’ll get.
  • @lukehersheson created 4-5 buns on @vickshersheson when her hair was about 70% dry.
  • Add some heat, using the lowest setting on your dryer.
  • Release to reveal an easy-breezy, natural wave.
  • We’re currently testing a NEW HERSHEONS PRODUCT that adds oomph (watch this space). In the meantime, you can always use a little Kérastase Densifique Densimorphose Mousse if you want more body without stickiness.
