In this blog post, we'll be sharing our top 10 tips for taking care of wavy hair.
So, whether you're looking for a new shampoo and conditioner to try or just need some advice on how to style your waves, read on!
Wavy Hair Characteristics
Wavy hair is often prone to frizz, lacks volume, and is often more resistant to styling.
If you have wavy hair, your hair has all of the body and bounce that those with straight hair lack, but without the effort of managing curls.
Bounce Curl’s hair type system focuses on three different curly hair types:
- Type 2 Wavy Hair
- Types 3 Curly Hair
- Types 4 Coily Hair
There are also sub-classifications – from A to C – that are based upon the diameter of the wave, curl, or coil.
Wavy hair can be broken down into three categories using this curly hair type system: 2A, 2B, and 2C.
Wavy hair forms in the loosest S-shape to a more defined S-shape throughout its length. Some people with wavy hair have a few wave patterns that are far more defined than others, and you may even find your waves change with the seasons.
The waves can be fine, medium, or coarse. The hair is usually healthy and strong, and depending on the cut, can have a lot of movement.
It is important to find a hair care routine that caters to your specific wave pattern and needs.
There are a few things you should keep in mind when caring for your waves, as well.
Some of the challenges wavy hair faces are volume and frizz. Volume is typically an issue for those with fine hair, but it can also be a challenge for those with medium to thick hair if the waves are loose and not well-defined.
If your wavy hair is on the loosest S-shape, it may lack volume. However, if your wavy hair is on the more defined S-shape end of the spectrum, you may have a lot more in common with curly hair, frizz, and dryness being a common challenge.
If your waves are subtle, having the loosest S-shape pattern, then use volumizing products that can give your hair a much-needed lift.
If your waves fall on the more defined wavy end of the spectrum, avoid products with silicone and use a light moisturizer and curl enhancer.
While it may seem easier to manage, this curl type requires careful product selection to avoid weighing the hair down.
More about that later.
10 Styling Tips
If you have wavy hair, you know that it can be a bit of a challenge to style. But with the right tips and products, you can create a look that’s both stylish and flattering.
Here are a few tips to help you get started:
- Use a curl enhancer or mousse to add bounce and body to your waves.
- Avoid using a lot of curl cream, as this can make your curls feel heavy and weighed down.
- Less is more. Don’t layer too many products as wavy hair tends to get easily weighed down and can lose its shape quickly.
- Try to use only one styler in your regimen to avoid build-up.
- Apply products on soaking wet hair. This will help distribute the product evenly throughout your hair, making it lighter, and so your hair won't get weighed down.
- This may not apply to everyone, but try to apply your styling products with your head upside down to get more volume.
- Use gels if you want to achieve more definition and long-lasting hold.
- Scrunch! Wavy hair will spring up if you scrunch it, so it's the ideal approach to enhance loose textures.
- To develop waves, plop your hair in a microfiber towel for between 10 - 20 minutes.
- To give your wavy hair more volume and definition, use a diffuser.
