Wavy Hair Styling Tips and Hacks

For you to unleash your hair’s true potential, you need to know how to style it properly. Here are some tips on how to do that!

As much as possible, avoid heat styling and blow-drying

This is because heat will damage your wavy hair and, worse, cause frizz. But if you have to use the hairdryer or other heat styling tools, make sure to apply heat protectants. Also, switch to the lowest possible heat setting and use the diffuser attachment of your hairdryer.


Apply styling products while your hair is still wet

This may seem counterintuitive, but doing so can help reduce frizz and create better waves and curls. Make sure to apply a higher amount of the products than you usually would.


Plop or micro-plop your hair

When you step out of the bathroom, wrap your wet hair with either a microfiber towel or a t-shirt. This will allow your hair to dry faster while keeping frizz at bay.


Beautiful Wavy Brown Hairstyles You Can Choose From

If you want to update your brown wavy hair, here are some of the hairstyles that you should check out:

1. Side-Part Long Wavy Brown Hair

2. Brown Wavy Lob
