How To Care for Naturally Wavy Hair
Caring for your curls can be confusing with the vast amount of information circulating online. It's time to put an end to the never-ending frizz and bad hair days!
Here’s a simple but effective guide that’ll have you sporting luscious locks in no time!
1. Time Is Your Friend
One of the top mistakes is not giving a new hair care routine or product enough time to work its magic. It can seem like your hair is more of a straighter hair type while it can seem like a curlier hair type the next and this can make things confusing.
But when experimenting with a brand new hair care routine or a new product, you should be giving it at least a few weeks before switching.
This is also true with drying your hair. It can be tempting to blow-dry your hair with heat but this causes your hair to frizz up and lose curl definition. Being patient with the drying process can help you unlock a side of your hair you’ve never seen!
2. Taming the Frizz
It can seem almost impossible to hide all of those with wispy bits sticking out of the side of your head. And your hair can even seem to have a life of its own, changing its appearance daily depending on the weather.
But there is an answer to keeping most of your frizz under control!
A common mistake with wavier hair types is treating it too much like straight hair. This means you can benefit from being more gentle with your hair. Stay away from heat tools and be careful with tighter hairstyles like ponytails or buns as they can cause plenty of damage to your follicles.
Being more gentle with your hair can reduce hair damage, making it less likely to frizz up every time you attempt to style it. Using the wrong type of brush when detangling can cause hair damage as well. We recommend using the WOW Scalp Massager as it’s made with soft, thick silicone bristles that's excellent for detangling.
3. Getting Well-Defined Curls
A common problem is not having enough curl definition with your locks no matter how you style it. Healthy hair is able to clump well together and is less likely to lack volume or bounce.
Products that aim to “moisturize” or “nourish” your hair often contain fillers like silicones & mineral oils. They’re great for quick results but they damage your strands over time due to buildup.
Product buildup prevents your follicles from absorbing sufficient nutrients and moisture. This can damage your strands and affect its ability to retain moisture.
We recommend the WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo for clarifying your scalp and hair from buildup. This naturally clarifying formula is also great for helping with dandruff and itchy scalp. Pair it with the silicone-free WOW Coconut & Avocado Hair Conditioner for deeply nourishing your strands.
