These types of hair fall in between curly and straight hair; they come down in loose curls with a zigzag pattern, almost in shape ‘S.’ You can easily achieve this look with both a straightener and a curling rod and a few styling sprays.
How to Prep and Style Wavy Hair?
Here are some great pointers for prepping and styling your hair in waves for an event.
Shower with lukewarm water, and then finish off the shower with a cold water rinse to secure your cuticles and add a little shine factor.
Hydrate your hair with deep conditioning once a week or if an event is coming up, then use this as an excuse to give yourself a relaxing conditioning massage. Also, this helps lock in moisture, so there’s no harm in trying it out once every week.
Softly detangle your hair with fingers to avoid breakage.
Are you looking to enhance and volumize your wavy hair? Try looking for enhancing cream or spray that will work your waves and add a volumizing factor.
Apply damp hair, and work it in your hair to add a flair of silky smooth texture to your loose curls and waves.
You can also scrunch your hair while they’re wet.
Remember to work with one small section so each strand gets the attention it deserves.
Take a diffuser blow dryer to dry your hair completely with a controlled heat temperature, so the hair doesn’t get roughed by the force of hot air.
Take a curling rod or straightener and start styling your hair in loose curls to get the smooth S shape.
Once you’ve worked all the waves, set it up with a hair-setting spray to keep it in place for an extended period.
Waves tend to look better with each passing day, so you can even go on for a couple of days without washing your hair and let the natural oil of rootwork work its magic in your favor. If it gets too much, you can always use a dry shampoo to reinvent the volume.
