This is the best morning routine for wavy hair. Give these tricks and tips a try, and fall in love with your wavy curls all over again.
The Best Morning Routine For Wavy Hair
Wash and rinse:
To get started, you'll need to wash your strands or wet down your waves. If you're shampooing, use a gentle cleansing shampoo and follow with your favorite moisturizing conditioner. Rinse out the conditioner using cool water and leave a slight amount behind.
Flip and squeeze:
After rinsing out the conditioner, flip your waves over and catch the strands using a microfiber towel, or t-shirt. Completing this step upside down helps form your waves and creates volume.
Remove the towel, and apply your favorite curl enhancing product to the palm of your hands. Apply the product by rubbing it along your strands, and then gently scrunch upwards. This ensures even distribution of the product, and makes your curls take shape. Then, you can apply a wave enhancing product, such as a sea salt spray. This will give waves texture and movement, without weighing down your delicate strands.
After the product has been applied, it's time to remove any excess water. Use a fresh towel or dry corner of the t-shirt to remove remaining excess water by gently scrunching. Do your best not to disrupt your curls' natural pattern and wave. After, allow your waves to air dry or use a diffuser to cup each wave. Before touching your waves, make sure your strands are completely dry.
