Wavy Hair Routine

Here is a routine to guide you through caring for wavy hair types:
  1. Shampoo: Wash wavy hair two to three times a week with a sulfate-free shampoo to keep the scalp and hair clean. Avoid over-washing as it can strip the hair of its natural oils, causing dryness and damage. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

  2. Condition: Apply a moisturising conditioner to the ends of the hair to keep it hydrated and smooth. Gently comb the conditioner through the hair using a wide-tooth comb, then rinse thoroughly with cool water.

  3. Deep Condition: Use a deep conditioner or hair mask every two weeks to provide extra moisture and hydration to the hair. Apply the deep conditioner to damp hair and let it sit for at least 30 minutes before rinsing it out.

  4. Use Oils: Apply natural oils, such as argan or coconut oil, to the ends of the hair to keep them hydrated and healthy. Avoid applying oils to the scalp as it can lead to greasiness.

  5. Detangle: Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to detangle your wavy hair. Start at the ends and work your way up to the roots. Do not use a brush as it can cause breakage and frizz.

  6. Air-dry: Allow the hair to air dry to maintain its natural texture. Scrunch the hair with your hands to enhance the waves.

  7. Protect while Sleeping: Avoid going to bed with wet hair as it can cause breakage. Use a silk or satin pillowcase to prevent hair from rubbing against rough surfaces and causing friction that can lead to breakage.

  8. Style: Use a styling cream or gel to define the natural waves of wavy hair. Apply the product to damp hair and use a wide-tooth comb or fingers to work it through the strands. Style the hair as desired, then allow it to air dry or use a diffuser on low heat.

  9. Refresh: In between wash days, use a water-based leave-in conditioner or a curl refreshing spray to revive and refresh the waves. Apply the product to the hair, scrunch, and style as needed.

  10. Trim: Regularly trim the ends of wavy hair to prevent split ends and breakage, allowing the hair to maintain its shape and volume.

By following these steps, those with natural wavy hair can maintain their hair's natural beauty and achieve healthy, defined waves.
