Hair Care Guide: Wavy Edition

wavy hair care hacks

Whether it’s your natural hair, or you’ve purchased our wavy hair extensions, it’s important to know how to take care of your wavy hair to get that beautiful body wave texture every day! Wavy hair is the perfect texture because it is a happy medium between straight and curly hair. Wear it sleek and straight when you want to, bump up the texture (and volume) a bit by curling it, or rock the beautiful natural texture everyone knows and loves.

But just like any texture, wavy hair isn’t without faults. Without proper maintenance, it can become super frizzy and hard to manage. If wavy hair isn’t your natural texture and you’re trying out one of our products, it can be confusing to style. Let us help guide your way to beautiful beachy waves that everyone will fawn over.

Hair Care Routine

Wavy hair requires a median amount of maintenance. Make sure to use a good brush or a loop brush if you use hair extensions. In order to achieve those silky tresses, you should wash your wavy hair with shampoo and conditioner at least two to three times a week. Much like straight hair, natural oils can easily travel down the hair shaft, weighing it down and making the hair appear stringy. Take care of this by washing the hair with enough frequency to keep the oils under control. As with all natural hair, it is important to use the best sulfate-free products, such as our Inspire line, to safely cleanse the hair and properly restore moisture.

Frizz Control

Wavy and curly hair tend to be more prone to frizz, and heat and humidity definitely contribute to this issue in the summer months. Fight frizz with a few simple tricks that your hair will thank you for. When you finish washing wavy hair, be sure to rinse it with cold water. This helps the cuticle lay flat and smooth. When drying your hair, opt for a t-shirt or a microfiber towel. Regular towels and cotton soak up excess moisture that your hair is in need of. If you don’t have time to let your hair air dry, a diffuser is a great tool designed just for textured hair. To ensure soft and smooth locks all day long, apply our argan oil or silk serum to protect your hair against the elements.

Styling Tips

When heat styling the hair, be sure to apply a heat protectant. Heat damage is the number one killer of curls and texture so protect your hair at all costs! When styling wavy hair naturally, less is more. Wavy hair can easily become weighed down by heavy or excessive use of products. Get a more natural look by using lightweight hair product like leave-in conditioner or a pea-sized amount of oil to perfect the hair. As tempting as it can be, once the hair is washed and styled, don’t touch it! Constantly messing with your locks after they’ve been styled can cause your waves to lose their shape. Instead, just let your hair be.
