Top tips for looking after wavy hair

Wavy hair does need a little love to look its best. If you’ve been struggling, you’re not alone – we’re here to help. Say goodbye to frizzy locks when you follow our tips and tricks for looking after your wavy hair.

How to use your hair brush

Wavy hair strands are on the whole much more delicate than curly hair. Brushing wavy hair too much can flatten it or even end up pulling out your beautiful waves.

Our stylists advise using a wet brush suitable for wavy hair such as the Angel PRO one of ours, and detangle while you’re in the shower and you’ve got some conditioner in your hair. This reduces breakage and minimises the frizz that occurs when you brush your hair when it’s dry.

Avoid heat styling as much as possible

Although it might feel like it makes sense to encourage your waves by heat styling, using too much heat can be detrimental to your locks as excessive heat and styling products can damage your hair and make it look frizzy.

If you do need to style it with heat, try and use on a cool setting to keep your hair in great condition.

Shower in warm water

Looking after your hair starts at the beginning when you’re having a shower (or bath!).

When you wash your hair, try to keep the water warm rather than boiling hot, and then follow up with a cool rinse to seal your hair cuticles and encourage shine.

Sleep in satin

Cotton pillowcases can cause a lot of friction on your poor hair when you’re tossing and turning in your sleep.

Investing in satin pillowcases or a satin sleep cap reduces this friction and frizz as a result, meaning your hair will look fabulous no matter how much you toss and turn.

Consider air drying

Don’t reach for the hair dryer just yet, as you can achieve a winning look without heat tools. Air drying is a great technique for achieving the ‘I’ve just come from the beach’ surfer girl look.

Use a small amount of leave-in product on damp hair from roots to ends, scrunch up your curls and let the air do it’s magic! You can thank us later.
