Let me start this entry off by saying how glad I am that so many of you are interested in learning more about your waves and how to embrace them!
I hope everyone’s waves had a good week! Since I was in the pool most of the time, my hair was in its natural state all week, and my products got a serious workout. I had a few comments, along with emails, asking about products that you can find at places like Walmart that will work well with waves. Before I knew of NaturallyCurly, Walmart was the only place I knew of where I could get something specifically for my wavy hair (because Walmart has everything of course).
Thank goodness for CurlMart, so we know what exactly works for our waves! If you're in desperate need of product and are waiting on your favorite products from CurlMart to arrive, there are things at Walmart that have gotten me through a few days.
For starters, I am not a gel fan. I don’t like the crunchy feel or the wet look, so gel is not for me, even though it does make curls look good. When needing something quick I turn to mousse. I am a fan of the Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Mousse because it holds my wave all day. The down side to it, though, is that it doesn’t control my frizz. It says that it will, but I didn’t find it doing that for me. I let my hair air dry for about 20 minutes and then take as much mousse as needed to scrunch my entire head. To get a little more volume, I flip my hair over and scrunch the underneath section. Plus, if I don’t scrunch the underneath section of my hair it dries straight, go figure.
I’ve tried other “wavy” products from companies like Bed Head and that didn’t do much to enhance my waves. It kept them from drying crazy and completely frizzed out, but my waves definitely didn’t look their best. Overall, if you’re like me, don’t dig the crunchy waves and are in need a quick product fix, I suggest Wonder Waves.
