Caring for Your Natural and Malaysian Wavy Hair: Basic Upkeep Tips

There’s something about a wavy hairstyle that makes it a universal favorite. Heroines from the most cherished classical tales are portrayed with long, romantic waves. Hollywood stars are often seen donning this feminine hairstyle on the red carpet. Additionally, lots of men find wavy hair very attractive on women. A Daily Mail poll on 3,000 male respondents showed 43% of them voting the long and wavy style as the as the hottest hairdo on women.

Wavy hair is also, perhaps, the most versatile of styles, occasion-wise. Whether attending a formal company event or clubbing with your friends, going on a special date, or spending the weekend at home, wavy hair, with a few tweaks here and there, allows you to always look your sexiest.

Wavy hair gives you the best of both worlds. It is more manageable than kinky hair, with a bounce that bone straight hair usually lacks. Some black women, particularly those of mixed race, are born with naturally wavy hair. Most, however, have exposed their locks to a great deal of styling to tame its curls and achieve that perfectly tousled look. An alternative to this is to wear Malaysian hair extensions to let your natural hair take a rest.

Caring for natural hair and hair extensions is similar in many ways. Here are some basic care tips that could apply to both natural hair and high quality Malaysian wavy hair extensions.

  1. Brushing wavy hair when dry can cause it to poof but it really depends on the brush type you use. A vented brush will do if you use it gently. However, you can ditch the brush all together and use a wide-toothed comb instead. A comb will also work better with damp hair.
  2. Don’t use regular towel when drying your hair because this promotes freezing. Use a microfiber towel or some old t-shirts to take some water off your waves instead. Consider using a light gel or mousse to tame your mane and prevent frizzing.
  3. Opt for a lightweight shampoo effective enough to clean your hair of dirt buildup but which won’t weigh down your waves. 

Wavy hair is both sexy and versatile. You can wear such style virtually everywhere you want go without worrying about your hair looking lifeless. Proper care will also help you tame the waves better, and avoid a messy look. Additionally, make sure you get quality hair extensions from reliable suppliers like Virgin Hair Fixx for easy maintenance and styling.
