Hair that is neither curly nor straight could be a challenge for some people as it takes a while to determine the texture and work with it. But once you learn how to style naturally wavy hair without causing any frizz and damage, you’ll never want to go back.
Whether you have naturally wavy hair or you want to achieve the appealing look, this styling guide will help you look fabulous 365 days of the year. So here is your hair-spiration!
Wash your hair the right way
Your wavy hair routine starts in the shower. The way you wash your hair makes a huge difference. From the temperature of water, to the products, everything needs to be controlled to get shiny, wavy hair from a.m. to p.m.
Always use lukewarm water to wash your hair. Extremely hot or cold water may damage the hair cuticle, resulting in dry, frizzy hair. Next, you want to make sure that you are using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. This way, you get to clean your hair and remove all the product build-up, without stripping away its natural oils and moisture.
Add hair masks to your routine
Replace your conditioner with a hair mask once a week to add moisture to your strands and boost shine.
Use a wide tooth detangling comb
A wide tooth detangling comb is a great tool to gently detangle hair in the shower as well as applying thicker products like conditioners and hair masks.
Don’t use a towel
Regular towels may dry out your hair. Use a microfiber towel or even better, a soft t-shirt to eliminate frizz.
Moisturize, Moisturize Moisturize!
We can’t stress this enough. Having some sort of moisture is key to fight unwanted fly-aways. Use a few drops of a nourishing oil on damp or dry strands, focusing on the mid-shaft and ends before styling.
Always use heat protector before styling or blow drying. While brushing your hair, try to be as gentle as possible because it could manipulate your curls and waves.
