360 Waves: How To Get Waves On The Sides

How To Get Waves On The Sides?

Getting waves on the sides isn’t hard, we just make it hard. As wavers we tend to brush the top of our head more than the sides and back. This causes the waves to form at a faster rate on the top of your head because you’re focusing all your brushing on that specific area. Waves are just laid down curls, so if you don’t have waves on the side that means your hair isn’t bring brushed enough on your sides.

How To Get 360 Waves On The Sides 

Step 1: Start by filling up a spray bottle with water. Spray the side of your head that you want to start developing.

Step 2: While your chosen side is still moist/damp, start brushing your hair with consistent brush strokes. A medium brush such as the Phantom Purple Medium Brush will work best with this method as the bristles are firm enough to pull your hair, but won't hurt your scalp. Only focus on brushing this specific side while using this method. This prevents you from mixing up your brush pattern. Brush until your hair is dry.

Step 3: Now that you've brushed until your hair is dry, grab a Comb and comb the respected side. This will lift up the hair from the scalp that you just focused on.

Step 4: Using your spray bottle, spray the respected side of your head again, making it moist/damp.

Step 5: Repeat Step 2, 3 and 4, 3 times. This method should take about 20-30 minutes to complete. 

Step 6: After you're finished brushing, put on your Durag to save your progress. Our Silky Durags will work best for this as your hair will still have room to breath while laying down your hair.

Stay Consistent!

Focus on brushing your sides more (at least for 30 minutes) and you'll see the waves start to form. If you still don’t see any progress on your sides, get a fresh cut and start brushing each side for 30 minutes. Sometimes it’s best to get a haircut if you're not seeing progress on your sides as you can start training your hair when it’s at a shorter length.
