Articles By Wave On/Alyssa Hawkins

I started working with NaturallyCurly almost a month ago and I have learned a lot about the curly world. One thing I have noticed during my journey is that there are not very many blogs that deal with wavy hair! Considering I myself am a wavy, I thought this should be fixed. So here I am starting a wavy blog for everyone to enjoy and hopefully get some great tips from. Along with comments in general, I would love to hear any suggestions you have for future topics. As for this first blog I wanted to make it more of an introduction to my hair and myself.

AG Recoil

AG Re:Coil Curl Activating Balm

I have always had naturally wavy hair but when I went in to my first year of high school I really started to embrace it. I used to hate it when I was younger because it would not dry straight, or curly, like all of my other friends’ hair would. It would irritate me that I could not be one or the other; I was just an in-between! As I started realizing that there were products made just for my hair type, I began experimenting and decided I loved everything about my waves! Yes, I do still have bad hair days, but on those days I just go with the flow and pull my hair in a wavy ponytail.

Working at NaturallyCurly has been great for my waves. I have been able to try numerous products that I have never even heard of. I tend to create a new “wavy regimen” once a week. Right now, however, I feel like I can’t live without the KMS Sea Salt Spray, the AG Re:Coil Curl Activating Balm, duckbill clips, and of course my diffuser. The KMS works great for me right out of the shower. I always use my duckbill clips, one on each side of my part and one in the back, to lift my hair off of the crown of my head, before I do anything else. I spray my hair with the KMS and get on with my morning routine. Once I’m done with everything else I diffuse my hair for about 10 minutes and then I’m done. It’s a simple way to get great natural waves. When I feel like doing a little less, even though my morning routine isn’t much, I shower at night and turn to my AG. I pat the water out of my hair, apply about a 50-cent piece amount of AG to my hair, and get to bed. When I get up in the morning I have great-looking waves that last me all day.

I have learned to love my waves and I love trying new products and styles. Embracing your natural look is great but I also love having different options. My goal for this monthly blog is to give you different products that will enhance your waves, suggest different styles, different treatments that you might want to try, and dish on other wavy news.

Like I said, feel free to suggest different topics or products you would like to know about or even see me try. Wave on.
