Have you ever wished for your waves to have more definition? If so, you're not alone! A lot of wavies wish for their hair to have more shape and hold. However, this can sometimes seem like it's tough to achieve. This is why you can't get your waves to clump, and this is what to do about it. Give these a suggestion a go, and make sure you let us know if it works for you.
Why You Can't Get Your Waves To Clump
If your waves won't clump, part of the issue could lie with how your stylist cuts your curls. If you have too many short layers, this could prevent your strands from clumping correctly. Therefore, you might want to consider trying to go for some longer layers, which will allow your waves to work together.
When waves won't take shape or definition, we also wonder if they're being styled correctly. You see, waves aren't the same as curls and therefore need to be treated differently. So in order to style your curls, you need to start with a good styler. It shouldn't be too heavy, but should still provide hold. In order to help your waves take shape, start by twisting the individual curls. If you have a lot of hair or are short on time, you can smooth your waves together into larger curl clumps.
As you know, products can really make or break your hair. Therefore, you'll want to make sure you're using the right types of products on your strands. Waves tend to be fine, so you won't want to use products that are too heavy, or you risk dragging down your strands, which won't allow your waves to clump. If your products aren't doing what you'd like, it's time to make a switch. Spend some time researching products to determine what might be right for your waves, based upon your hair's density, thickness, levels of porosity, and what you hope to achieve. Ask for samples, or try travel sized products if you'd like to try one before making a full commitment.
