This may sound ridiculous...yet I spent years unaware my hair was naturally wavy. I always washed and straightened it. Threw it up into a bun. Used heat styling tools and harsh ingredients.
It was only after my friend pointed out that I had natural waves seeking to escape that I decided to awaken my waves. Since then I've never looked back. My hair is long, soft and shiny. I've got beach worthy waves all year round. Hair that makes me feel confident, empowered and happy.
Yet it's common that a lot of women aren't aware their hair is actually wavy. So below, you'll discover the 5 clear signs that you have gorgeous waves hidden within your locks. Waves itching to be awoken!
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.
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 conditioner like Merwave's Repair Conditioner. This will deeply hydrate your hair. That frizzy mess will soon turn into defined waves.
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.

My hair is like I've just had a swim in the sea, without the salty feeling and sand!.''.

The results stayed in for about 2-3 days, I didn’t wake up with a frizzy mess, I just finger-combed my hair on days two and three and bingo - good to go!''.
''I knew I had naturally wavy hair but I’ve spent money here, there any everywhere trying to tame my frizzy mess and nothing ever really seemed to work for me. Even trying some of the CGM tricks just left me with a crispy, bedraggled mess. Refreshing my waves is also so simple and works! I now have beautiful, soft, wavy hair that’s so easy to achieve!''.
''I have spent years and years and many hours trying to straighten and smooth them out rather than embrace them! I have tried LOADS of products in the past and they haven't given me the result I wanted. I have to say I am AMAZED at the results (after one use) that merwave have given me! Even after sleeping on my new curls they look amazing''.
