How To Blow Dry Hair With A Natural Wave

Gone are the days of needing to decipher the how-to’s of hair styling on your own

Those of you with naturally wavy hair are in luck this year . . . as long as you know how to make the best of your natural waves. Most women when told by their hairdresser that they are fortunate to have naturally wavy hair, will come back with something like; “But my hair doesn’t have a nice consistent wave that I can let it go natural.” It’s true, most naturally wavy hair will be more wavy in one area than in another. You need a good haircut with some layering that will allow the natural wave to come through and give a good shape to the hairstyle.

Has a hairdresser been able to coax your hair into a hairstyle using just your natural wave and a product or two? If so, you can duplicate it and save styling time and wear and tear on your hair.

Richard Ashforth, the International Creative Director for Saco, has put together an easy to follow, comprehensive video for styling your natural wavy hair. I particularly like that he doesn’t get carried away with hair care products. Too many hairdressers will have you believe you need a half-dozen products to make a hairstyle come together. Richard suggests only two products, that’s it! He uses a thick leave-in conditioner to bind the hair together and a mouse to aid in styling and to add shine to the hair. Using more products for this hairstyle would weigh the hair down, resulting in loss of both volume and curl.

A subtle step Richard gives that is important not to skip, is gently massaging the product out. Doing this will make your hair look softer and get rid of the “crispy” look, that hair care products can give to the wave. Check out the video here:

  2. I have naturally wavy hair but it is very uneven and I have a problem with frizz. I never know how to style it correctly to bring out my natural texture in a controlled, stylised look..this video was incredible..I loved that it was in video format so I could physically see what to do. I learned for the first time how to use a diffuser and what products to put in my hair. My hair turned out to have volume and waves and didn’t look frizzy. The waves looked seperated and natural. I LOVED it! I so loved this video! Thanks
