Wavy hair is a hairstyle that many men wear, but not all black males have the same texture of hair. It can be hard to find out how to get wavy hair if you don’t know your natural curl pattern.
You may think it’s too difficult or expensive for your desired results. However, this article will show you exactly how to get wavy locks with some simple and easy steps!
The first step is knowing what type of curls you have. If they are tight curls then this process will be much harder because loose curls already have a looser wave pattern which makes them easier to style as waves.
If you are looking for more traditional, here I show you a more traditional method:
1. Apply shampoo to hair, massage for 20 seconds, rinse with cool water for 15 seconds.
2. Apply conditioner to hair and massage for 5 minutes, rinse gently underwater.
3. Use a towel to remove excess water from your hair, pat dry until no longer dripping wet.
4. Apply cream or gel to damp hair, comb through to find any knots, and remove if necessary.
5. Comb through hair with a wide-tooth comb or a Denman brush to distribute the cream evenly.
6. Apply a heat protectant before using any heating tool (flat iron, curling iron), and be careful not to use too high a heat setting.
7. Blow dry your hair in sections with a round brush and a hairdryer.

Natural styling techniques
Here are some styling techniques that will help you achieve the look of waves without damage to your natural hair.
You can use braids as a protective style for your hair by creating micro braids. Micro braids allow you to get away with heat and still have straight hair when it is time for work, school, or other events! You should create two different sets of micro braids on opposite sides of your head (if possible).
This allows you to pull one side back into a ponytail or bun easily so that it can be styled in the way in which you want without affecting the curls on the other side of your head. For those who have really tight curls, this may not be ideal because pulling the braids back into a ponytail or bun may cause the hair to damage easily.
Wash And Go
If micro braids are not your thing then you may want to try going for a wash and go style! You can do this by simply applying some gel (or other curly product) to your hair during the shower, combing it out when you are done, and drying it with a diffuser.
If you have tight curls that clump together then this technique will work great as long as you don’t mind how it looks while wet because that’s what it’s going to look like once dried. This is one of the easiest ways to create wavy-looking hair without any heat at all!
Invest In Curling Iron
If you can’t get away with the micro braids mentioned above, then your next best option is to invest in a brush like a Denman Brush or even flexi rod curling iron. This will give your hair more of that wave pattern that women and men alike look for in their hairstyles.
While you are at it, make sure you find some products that do not leave residue on your natural scalp because this could cause much more damage than what heat would have done.
Some great brands include Carol’s Daughter, Design Essentials, and Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Cream. Since there is no heat being applied to the hair, you should be able to get away with using most of these products on a daily basis.
When it comes to heatless curls, the Pret-a-curl method is probably one of the best! It’s not perfect for those who have tight curls but because you are only wetting your hair and letting it air dry, this is a great option if you don’t want to use heat or chemicals in your hair.
The first thing you will want to do is apply some gel or cream to your damp hair (make sure you use a product that dries curly) and comb out any knots. Then tie up all of the front pieces so that they stay back while the rest of your hair air dries.
Once it’s dry, comb the hair out and you will have soft curls that look great! The only downfall is that these are not intended to last forever because they won’t hold up against humidity and rain so if you want longer lasting curls then rollers or flexi rods may be your best bet.
