Wavy hair is exceptionally unique and lovely, but it may be difficult to style and care for it. It could appear bouncy, voluminous, and even spiral one day and then be practically straight the next. Have you ever noticed that different areas of your hair have different wave patterns? How do you keep it from seeming stringy but still get soft, voluminous, and defined waves that aren’t frizzy? Well, hair volume treatment and CG method (Curly Girl Method) are our answers!
Here you will learn how to take care of natural wavy hair, keep it healthy, and achieve volume. We’ve put up a few tips and tricks to assist you in developing a CG-based hair volume treatment for your wavy hair.
Before you continue reading, consider that numerous factors influence how your hair behaves naturally and react to different products and treatments. This includes the porosity of your hair, the fineness of your hair, and even the weather on a given day. Take this as a starting point for a wavy hair care routine, and utilize it to create your customized routine to achieve the best voluminous styles of your dream.
1. About Properly Washing Your Wavy Hair
Wavy hair or any hair type with texture requires more moisture than straight hair. Unfortunately, the shampoos we’ve all come to rely on every wash strip our hair of its natural moisture, leaving it dull and lifeless. Start your wavy curly hair care journey by removing the shampoo from your daily regimen, at least for now.
Instead of shampoo, you’ll cleanse your hair with a (silicone-free) conditioner. Switch to a low-poo routine using a sulfate-free shampoo if your hair becomes too greasy after roughly a month of this practice.
2. Detangling It The Correct Way
Detangling wavy curly hair differs significantly from detangling straight hair. The first rule is that no brushes are allowed. Second, only detangle in the shower with plenty of conditioners. With your hair soaked and evenly coated in conditioner, pull out any knots and tangles with your fingers or a wide-tooth comb. Use caution when brushing your hair and avoid using force since this may cause it to break.
3. Effectively Conditioning Your Wavy Hair
Just because you’re co-washing and conditioning with a CG-friendly conditioner doesn’t guarantee your hair is getting the most volume out of it. To obtain the maximum nourishment from your conditioner, condition your hair deep into the roots first. This hair volume treatment will allow the conditioner to enter deep into the hair shaft, leaving your waves bouncy and hydrated.
4. Keep It Moisturized
Conditioning is only half the battle; you’ll need much more moisture for healthy hair. If your hair is curly or dull, add a moisturizing (silicone-free) hair mask once a week and gradually increase or decrease the frequency as needed for your hair volume treatment routine. If your hair is damaged or has a high porosity, additionally, consider using protein-rich products in your nourishing hair masks to assist your hair in retaining moisture.
5. Styling Your Wavy Hair
When you start hunting for silicones, you’ll be shocked at how many products include them! Simply enter your product’s information into the hair care website to ensure that it is CG-approved. Don’t be afraid; you can use any styling product you choose, as long as it matches your hair care routine.
For styling, we advise using lightweight products, such as mousses or light gels, as they work well on wavy hair in general.
Pro tip: Whichever product you choose, the best results will be achieved if you apply it to wet or damp hair and dry it with the product still on it.
6. Drying Your Hair
Natural wavy hair that has been freshly washed or has product in it can be dried in two ways: air drying or diffusing. Choose the first way if you have time on your hands and aren’t looking for more volume. Choose the second way for faster drying and higher volume. Make sure to use a microfiber towel or plain cotton cloth while drying your hair.
7. Protecting Your Hair
Finally, your natural wavy hair requires special attention and protection against frizz, knots, and other problems. Use a silk pillowcase or bonnet to protect your hair while you sleep to prevent frizz. If you wish to style your hair regularly, use a heat protectant to avoid heat damage. Heat damage is serious business, and it’s a sure way to flatten your waves permanently.
Bonus Tip: Use Hair Extensions
We know that having great hair sometimes demands a little help. We might not all have Rapunzel’s hair, but that doesn’t mean we can’t try to look like her! Wavy hair extensions are a great way to give your hair the illusion of being thick, full, and healthy. Diva Divine is likely to have just what you’re looking for with so many options.
Human hair extensions made from Remy are soft, smooth, and give you a natural-looking change. They enable you to add hair precisely where you require it. These wavy hair extensions are ideal for those with thin or thinning hair. While the changes will be noticeable, these extensions are so light that you will forget you have them on.
If you’re fortunate enough to have natural wavy hair, you’re most likely the center of attraction within your friends. Wavy hair is naturally full of volume and structure, which other hair types crave. Whether you prefer beachy waves or a sleek, straight appearance, you’re probably fighting frizz just like your curly-haired friends.
Wavy hair is neither as thick nor as fine or oily as curly or straight hair. Knowing your hair type will aid you in selecting the appropriate products to maintain your waves to achieve the best voluminous styles with hair volume treatment or even with the help of wavy hair extensions.
