    Default Who has wavy hair? Do you use styling products?

    I have naturally wavy hair. At the moment I'm embracing it because quite frankly, the haircut I currently have doesn't look as good if I blow dry it straight.

    If you wear your hair wavy, what products to you use to enhance/style it?

    I'm currently using a styling foam product that I've had for a few years when my hair is wet, a light blow dry of the roots, then letting it air dry with some sea salt spray scrunched through it.

    I suspect there are some better products out there, but what are they?

    I just brush it through when wet then scrunch with some mousse and let it dry naturally. For me blow drying just makes it frizzy and knocks waves out. I used to use gel when my hair was longer as the waves fall when it dries but I'm not so keen on the wet look now so prefer mousse.

    Sea salt spray products can be good. I have slightly wavy hair and if I use sea salt spray it gives it that beach hair look.

    I do exactly the same - though my hair is probably curly more than wavy. I've also used moroccan oil, and a couple of similar products if I don't want as defined curls. I think there was also a Di lorenzo taming product at one point.
    A friend with the most amazing hair just spritzes hers with sea salt spray after towel drying. I'm jealous it doesn't make my hair look like hers.

    I have fairly long wavy hair, have tried so many products that either leave my hair oily or frizzy. The only thing that seems to work is the NUK brand. It's a silver tube with purple writing, just ran out yesterday so I'll need to get more over the weekend. I wash, brush while wet, put product in and scrunch. Works perfect.

    If i wear my hair curly i use a hair curl enhancer thingie.
    I used to user Curls Rock - that tigi/catwalk brand.
    I've used some other products but I found this range the best.

    I have curly hair and I have to use product otherwise it is an unattractive afro.

    I use Moroccan oil and a wax or similar products to define my curls.
