Wavy Hair - What do we do with it?


Wavy hair, called in English and "wavy hair" is perhaps the most ignored type of hair, because it is often confused with straight hair.
Why this? Because wavy hair is attached to the scalp and has the shape of an S, which can be more defined or very long.
It often happens that the first curl appears only after the hair exceeds the length of the shoulder.
If the hair is very short you may not even notice that the hair is wavy and if the hair is combed daily, dry with a hair dryer then the hair looks straight.
Maybe you noticed that in summer the hair tends to be more wavy, while in winter it looks straight? There is no problem, there are solutions for this as well.
Wavy hair changes its texture very often. One day it may look very defined, but if you catch it in the tail and do sports in a few days, it looks straight. It is often seen on wavy hair and the fact that one part looks very good, is defined and another part has frizz and does not look at all.
Sounds familiar? Do not despair. If you follow the tips below you will see results in time.

Wavy hair

Use a shampoo for wavy hair

The first rule is to use a sulfate-free wavy hair shampoo. 
As you may know, sulfates are cleansing agents that cleanse the scalp and hair of impurities. Unfortunately, many shampoos contain very harsh cleansing agents that dry the hair. Dry hair goes hand in hand with frizz, another problem of wavy hair.
If you are a person who washes his hair daily or practices sports then it would be advisable to use a cowash. Cowash is a type of balm with cleansing properties, which does not foam at all and contains many natural ingredients. It is indicated for very dry hair and hair with high porosity. 
Wavy hair is usually easily tangled from the styling products used. That's why you need a wavy hair shampoo with a higher cleansing power.

Choose a conditioner for wavy hair

As in the case of shampoo, when choosing a conditioner for wavy hair, try to choose a product with as many natural ingredients and as few chemicals as possible. When applying the conditioner on wet hair, avoid applying it from the root, but apply from the middle of the hair down. If you apply conditioner to the root, the hair may be too close to the scalp. If you notice threads at the root, which go in all directions, apply conditioner on your fingertips and gently pass over those threads.
Run your fingers through the hair from the root to the tips and then squeeze the hair into your palms. This will help the formation of curls. Then rinse the conditioner from the hair and when you rinse it again squeeze the hair in your palms, like in a cup.
