I spent years unaware my hair was naturally wavy. I always washed and straightened it. Threw is up in a bun. Used heat styling products and harsh ingredients.
It was only after my friend pointed out I had natural waves seeking to escape that I decided to embrace and unleash them. Since that day I've never looked back. My hair is long, soft and shiny. I've got beach worthy waves all year round. The hair you get after swimming in the sea. The kinda hair that puts a smile on your face every time you look in the mirror.
Yet most people I speak to are simply unaware that their hair is wavy. So in this article, I'm going to reveal the 5 signs you have gorgeous waves hidden within your locks.
Let's get into it...
When your hair is wet it usually reveals your natural pattern.
So if you spot kinks, this is the sign that you don't have straight hair. Instead of brushing them out and encouraging your natural waves to drop, try not to touch your hair while it’s drying and see how it turns out.
If it does appear wavy curly, the key is to find the right products and techniques to embrace your waves after your hair has been washed. That way you won’t struggle with unruly frizz.
Talking of frizz...
Humidity and the weather can have a big effect on wavy hair.
If yours frizzes up whenever you leave the house, you may have some waves trying to get free!
Instead of tying your hair back in an attempt to keep it neat, add moisture back into your hair using a high quality, repair conditioner, so your waves can come through. That frizzy mess will soon turn into definition.
Hair that looks puffy or flicks out at the end is a common sign of waves.
It’s very easy for natural waves to be hidden or camouflaged under poofiness - usually because people brush out their waves instead of defining them.
If your hair naturally wants to flick out, this could be waves trying to form.
Have you tried loads of different conditioning treatments and still find your hair impossible to tame? Broken hairbrushes or combs just trying to brush your hair? Take you ages to detangle, leading to your hair snapping?
It could be that your hair is extremely damaged or it could be that you have wavy hair.
Sometimes, even using heat can’t stop some curl types from peeking through.
Ever noticed that some sections refuse to straighten? Those kinks just appear and there's no amount of blow drying or straightening that will make them disappear.
That's wavy hair!
