What Is "Wolfing" 360 Waves?

Wolfing is the most important technique in achieving 360 waves. The term “wolfing” means growing out your hair while continuously brushing your waves. Lets say you start your wave journey with a 2 with the grain haircut and your next haircut is 4 weeks later. That means you just wolfed for 4 weeks. The longer your hair is the curlier it gets, and lets not forget that waves are just laid down curls. Therefore, the longer your hair is the deeper your waves become.

 Wolfing 360 Waves

It gets harder to control your wolf the longer your hair is. Everyone has a different maximum wolf length because everyone’s hair grows at different speeds. Someone with a tighter curl texture with slower hair growth will be able to wolf longer than someone who has a lighter curl texture where the hair growth is much faster; it all varies.

It's recommended to never over-wolf. Over-wolfing is when you bypass the maximum potential in your wolf and you can no longer see your waves or keep them laid down no matter what method you use. As you continue your wave journey you'll learn how long you can wolf for and what haircuts to get.

Different Types Of Durags To Use For Wolfing 360 Waves

When wolfing your 360 waves, your hair will be longer than normal which will increase frizziness. This will make your hair look untamed and wild. Thats why it's very important to wear a Durag as often as possible. If you're not brushing, you should be wearing your Durag. Silky Durags work best due to the texture of the material used. The breathable material doesn't cut off circulation to your scalp, which will help contribute to your hair growth.

Velvet Durags use a thicker material which doesn't provide as much breathability compared to a Silky Durag, but the fabric used is more dense compared to Silky Durags which can provide a better hold for your hair. The crushed velvet material also provides a different style that people will appreciate.
