5 Best Defining Products for Wavy Hair

Does your wavy hair come in waves? If your hair has a tendency to start out wavy then fall straight, wavy-defining products can give your hair the push and hold it needs to maintain its shape. Here’s a list of five favorite wavy-defining products for naturally wavy hair.

1. Curl Junkie Pattern Pusha

Definition! Volume! Hold! Naturally Curly members give this non-glycerin gel high marks for bringing out the oomph in their curls and waves without the sticky feel, crunch, or flakes. Bring down the frizz while playing up the bounce. For one fine-haired wavy, this slippery gel was thin enough that it didn’t pull the curl out of her hair. Some say a little goes a long way while others apply it more liberally.

2. Kenra Styling Gel #17 (firm hold)

This alcohol-free styling gel delivers strong support minus the sticky, greasy feel or flakes. Users with both fine and thick curly hair tout its bodybuilding ability and control.

Dries quickly. Clean and lightweight.

3. Deva Curl Ultra Defining Gel

A go-to product for many, this popular ultra-hold moisturizing and defining gel leaves hair soft and shiny. Delivers definition without the crunch. One Naturally Curly member said if she could only use one product for the rest of her life, this would be it. It dissolves instantly when applied to wet hair. Once dry, it forms a moisture-protective cast to enhance curls.

4. Max Green Alchemy Sculpting Gel

A strong curl- and wave-styling product that’s not sticky, greasy, or heavy. Humidity-resistant, it controls frizz and flyaway hair without the buildup. If waves start to droop at end of day, scrunch hair with wet hands to rejuvenate. Plant-based, organic, PVP-, gluten-, and alcohol-free.

5. Bumble and Bumble Bb. Gel

This alcohol-free product is described as a multi-talented sculpting medium that molds firm and shiny shapes. We say it’s a high-hold gel that sculpts and shapes hair. Shiny, radiant finish that’s not sticky to the touch or flaky.

We’re adding a bonus product to the list: Murray's Superior Hair Dressing Pomade.

InStyle magazine recently named this product as “the secret to Jennifer Aniston’s waves.”  This affordable product was on our radar a few years for “7 Light Hold Pomades For Wavy Hair.”
