Wavy hair. - September 20th 2010, 05:03 AM

Hey everyone,

I had short hair for a very long time, and over the last year my hair has finally reached a good length. It's now about an inch or so below my collarbone. I have wavy hair, but my issue is that when it's dry is becomes very frizzy, unruly and sticks off rather than maintaining the nice waves it should. Being new to this whole long hair thing, I was wondering if any of you had any tips, or advice on what to use or what to do in order to maintain my waves in a way that will allow me to wear my hair natural?
I haven't dyed my hair in two years, I get regular trims and i've tried just about every commercial shampoo/conditioner/frizz control serum/ styling product... etc available for wavy hair. My hair also doesn't respond well to curling/curling irons.

Thanks guys!

I don't have extremely wavy hair, but I have lots of body in it so it comes off as wavy most of the time. Try running some moose and hair spray and sometimes gel through it, while its still wet but not drenching and see if that helps.
I know it helps me.

Always remember to put your happiness first.

Hmm, Try washing it in the mornings, if you sleep on it and then brush it when it is dry it will often go frizzy, mine does the same. Comb it when your hair is wet, and put anti-frizz serum through your hair, and with a bit of luck it will calm down. I grew out of the frizzyness in my hair, but like I say about the brushing, I need to be careful. And as for heat styling tools, use a heat defensive product that will cause less damage for you.

Anti-frizz serum, mousse, etc. will be your new best friends.
Make sure you use it when your hair is damp.

Also, you can ask your hair stylist what she would recommend.
