Washing Wavy Hair: The Foolproof Routine You’ll Want to Do Everyday

Your waves have never looked better!

While we’ve all been in quarantine, many of us have put hair washing on the backburner. We have to admit, it’s easy to do. However, it’s so important to give your strands a good cleanse and condition around every 2-3 days—but of course, this varies depending on your hair type. Washing wavy hair, in particular, can sometimes be a little challenging. Finding the best products for this hair type isn’t always the easiest task, so we’re here to help you out.

Wavy hair can be prone to frizziness and dryness, but using products that are formulated with too many oils can weigh hair down. Keep scrolling to find out what products will make you want to cleanse your strands every day.

1. Scrub it Out for Washing Waves

So, you have about four days worth of dry shampoo on your scalp? Give you scalp a little TLC by using Nexxus Clean & Pure Invigorating Detox Scalp Scrub. This scrub is one of our favorites to use because it helps to remove any product build-up. Using a scrub every other week before washing wavy hair is extremely beneficial to your overall hair health because it allows you to get an even better clean from your shampoo.

Now we’ve made it to the exciting part: washing wavy hair! Start with Dove Amplified Textures Hydrating Cleanse Shampoo. This sulfate-free formula is perfect for ladies with textured wavy hair because it’ll gently cleanse your strands and remove build-up. The aloe helps to add moisture and shine to your hair without weighing it down, so that’s a huge plus for us. Follow with Dove Amplified Textures Super Slip Detangling Conditioner. This conditioner is great because the coconut milk will help nourish and provide slip for easy-to-comb strands.

3. Hydrate Your Hair

Use a hair oil or serum for additional hydration.

Since wavy hair is more prone to frizziness and dryness, it’s always a good idea to have a serum or oil on hand. One of our favorites is Love Beauty and Planet Sandalwood & Grapeseed Natural Oils Infusion. This oil is great to use after washing wavy hair because it gives your strands an extra boost of hydration without weighing it down. The oil can be used on wet or dry hair. Plus, a little goes a long way with this product, so you’ll only need a little bit. Apply it from the midshaft down to the ends of your hair for an extra boost of hydration.
