Today’s question comes from David who reached out via Facebook to ask me some basic tips on getting waves.

MM: I use to have crazy waves back in the day! I wore a wave cap (like the stocking kind) religiously every night to bed. Du rags never seemed to stay on my head quite right. I would prep my hair by using a thick pomade like Sportin Waves. To be honest, the stuff irritated my scalp a little, so these days I would recommend using a natural hair butter like Shea Radiance Moisture Rich Hair Butter or something similar that won’t cause a lot of product buildup on your scalp. Then I would brush thoroughly with a soft boar bristle brush and put on the wave cap right before bed. Hope this helps!
What are your tips for maintaining waves?
