ur very first wavy hair routine content submission comes from Megan. She has been following the “curly girl” method (no sulfates, non-water solubule silicones, heat) for a bit under 6 months. Megan has 2B and 2C hair that is low porosity and medium density. Don’t worry if you don’t know exactly what those mean. Take a look to see what her beautiful hair looks like!
Megan’s Wavy Hair Routine: note that all currently available products mentioned contain clickable links if you wish to see/purchase the product.
Megan cowashes about twice a week and uses either Salon Care Honey Almond (discontinued, no link available) or Not Your Mother’s Naturals (NYMN) Linseed Chia and French Plum Seed Oil Conditioner. Like myself, Megan prefers to shower at night and in her words, “because I don’t like getting up earlier than I have to.”
Condition (Rinse Out)
Next comes the conditioner, and Megan likes to use either the SheaMoisture Low Porosity Conditioner or NYMN Tahitian Gardenia and Mango Butter (Pink) Conditioner. She rinses this out completely.
Styling Part 1: a hair cocktail before drying
Megan sprays her hair with a a mixture of water, ECO Cocktail , and As I Am Leave In Conditioner. Then she scrunches out the excess water with a flour sack towel.
Styling Part 2: Section, Curl Enhancher, Detangle
Megan then sections her hair into four parts, applies AG Recoil Curl Activator and Flaxseed Gel (another wave/curl enhancer. If you need a recipe, click here!) and detangles usign a Denman brush (this is a wavy hair favorite!) Buy Now
Styling Part 3: Diffuse, SOTC
Megan diffuses her hair with the Xtava Black Orchid Diffuser, then “scrunches out the crunch” left from the cast of products with Carol’s Daughter Hair Oil.
Thoughts and More
My favorite thing on Megan’s submission were her words of wisdom to share with anyone fairly new to the natural wavy hair journey: “Don’t jump in with expensive products, I’m now shaving my legs with Deva Curl items.” And you know what? She is SO right! There is a large learning curve to naturally wavy hair that it might be best to keep products on the less expensive side. I’m going to make a post of some of the affordable products I’ve come across or seen recommended. Including all of Megan’s!
