Totally worth the hype.
I’ve always craved long, lush wavy hair. That hair we only get after soaking up the sun and swimming in the sea whilst abroad. Those nourished, beach worthy waves that make us feel empowered, confident, attractive and youthful. Natural waves that are unique to me.
Problem was (although I knew my hair was naturally wavy) I could never find the right products and process to achieve that surfer look. I spent a fortune on products that didn’t work. Watched endless YouTube videos breaking down complicated methods. Yet after trying everything I always seemed to end up with a frizzy, producty, tangled birds nest. Not a great look!
Then I discovered the Merwave wavy hair kit (£68, merwave.co.uk) which promised to awaken my waves.
At first I was sceptical. Would I be throwing more money down the drain? Would the process take hours and be complicated? Yet after reading the hundreds of 5-star reviews and seeing the results across their social channels, Merwave was clearly different. So I dived in and bought it – and it was the best thing I did!
Here’s why Merwave’s wavy hair kit was my saviour...
Every other product I’ve previously used was created for curly hair. Thing is curly and wavy hair require different products and methods. So it was refreshing to finally see a brand who focused solely on wavy hair women.
The kit includes five products. Which at first I thought was excessive. Yet once you break them down it’s not many at all...
There’s a shampoo, a conditioner (which left my hair super slippery!), a leave in treatment, a foam and a strong hold gel. All of the products are lightweight enough not to weigh your waves down, yet strong enough to hold your waves in place throughout the day.
Despite being wary that the 5-step process would take ages, it only took 10-minutes from start to finish. A fraction of the time compared to other methods I’ve tried before.
Steps 1 & 2 (shampoo and conditioner) are done in the shower. Then it’s a quick 5-minute post shower routine with steps 3-5, which are the styling products.
I loved how simple and easy the whole process was. No confusing rules. Just a quick and easy method.
The video further down shows how easy it is.
To be honest, the first time I tried Merwave I didn’t get the best results. I couldn’t believe that all of the hype I’d seen was real. My hair felt heavy with excess product which was causing my waves to droop.
Yet after reading the tips and advice inside the Merwave community group (which is a hive of wavy hair knowledge) I realised I’d just gone overboard with the amount of styling product I’d used. For my hair, less product really is more.
Once I’d tweaked the amounts my wavy hair was transformed. After one wash my beach worthy waves were unleashed. I was left with soft, lush, deeply nourished waves that lasted days. Frizz free, lightweight hair that made me feel like I’d just come back from holiday. Nothing I’d used before had given me wavy hair like this.
On the face of it £68 for the full Merwave kit doesn't appear cheap. Yet broken down it works out at just over £13 per bottle, including shipping. Which for five high quality products formulated for wavy hair isn't expensive.

Yet what I found is that because you use small amounts, the products last months. Especially if you’re like me and only wash your hair a couple of times a week, then refresh your waves in between. It’s also significantly cheaper than getting your hairdresser to style it. At the end of the day, you really do get what you pay for.
My favourite thing about Merwave is that you gain access to their community group on Facebook. It’s packed full of wavy hair tips, tricks and styling techniques from thousands of other customers. Knowledge that would take you years to figure out alone. It’s like having your own team of wavy hair experts at your finger tips.
If like me you want a quick and easy way to unleash your natural beachy waves, then I’d highly recommend giving Merwave a shot. I've finally been able to unlock and embrace my natural, gorgeous wavy hair. It takes less than 15-minutes and the results last for days. I can safely say my straighteners have officially been retired!
