If you have wavy hair, then you know that it can be a bit of a challenge to keep it looking good. The good news is that there are some things you can do to help maintain your wavy hair and keep it looking its best. Here are six tips to help you get started.

1. Shampoo and Condition Your Hair Regularly

Your wavy hair requires a bit more shampoo and conditioner than other types of hair because it gets quite dry. If you do not shampoo your wavy hair regularly, then it will become very difficult to manage and keep looking good. Fortunately, wavy hair also responds well to conditioner, even if you apply it daily.

2. Avoid Heat Styling

Styling wavy hair with heat can be very difficult because wavy hair has a mind of its own and will do what it wants to when you least expect it. If you must style wavy hair with heat, then use the lowest setting possible and do not hold the dryer or curling iron in one place for too long.

3. Be Gentle with Your Hair

Wavy hair should be brushed gently through while shampooing and conditioning, and should only be brushed once it has been towel dried. Wavy hair can become wiry if you brush it when it is dry, so always brush wavy hair gently while it is wet.

4. Only Use the Right Styling Products

Styling wavy hair is not like styling straight or curly wavy hair, so you need to be very careful when using styling products that might make your wavy hairs look greasy or weighed down. These products can include moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, heavy leave-in conditioners, gel, and hairspray.

5. Be Careful with Your Hairstyle

In general wavy hair is easier to style if the waviness is concentrated on top of your head or at the front of your head. You may need to use a flat iron or curling iron to make wavy hair appear wavier at the back of your head, but it is best not to style wavy hair on a daily basis.

6. Use a Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner

Wavy hair tends to be dry due to exposure to the sun and wind, as well as from daily styling with heat. A wavy hair moisturizing shampoo and conditioner will help wavy hairs to retain moisture, which will make them appear shiny, healthy, and lustrous.


Maintaining wavy hair can be a challenge, but with the right products and techniques, it’s definitely doable. We hope these six tips have helped you better understand how to manage your waves. If you have any questions or need more advice, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Thanks for reading!
