Master Your Waves

If your wavy hair is suffering from these common poofy pitfalls, you can make these tweaks to your wavy hair regimen. Here’s how to keep your wavy texture beachy-beautiful.

Give Your Hair a Drink

Waves need moisture to thrive—the more hydrated your hair, the less frizz. Use a replenishing deep conditioner (try: Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Curl Nourish Butter Cream Leave-In) on a weekly basis to keep curls quenched.

Section Your Hair

Rushing through your product application can make your waves look a little wonky. Take a minute or two to divide your hair into sections before you apply product like Garnier Fructis Curl Construct Mousse, which boosts curls and controls frizz. The idea is to work in small sections and coat every strand so they have uniform shape and body.

Scrunch and Squeeze

Scrunching is a must to enhance your wavy definition. After you finish applying your styling product, use both hands to scrunch your hair, holding each squeeze for a few seconds.

Finish with Oil

Use a lightweight oil, like Argan oil, to seal in moisture. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment is a good option because it adds shine without heaviness.

Don’t Blast Your Strands

Warning: A blow dryer can make your waves expand and look poofy, so air-dry whenever possible. If heat can’t be avoided, a diffuser attachment can help cut down on the frizz.

Don’t Touch Your Waves

Avoid playing with your waves once they have dried—touching your hair too much makes it get big and frizzy.
