Tips for looking after wavy hair
1) Shampoo your scalp
Double shampoo your hair to clean the scalp and then to allow the nutrients to be absorbed, as a healthy scalp will enhance the health of your wavy hair.

7) Protect your wavy hair
Style your hair in twists, braids, buns, or any way that will protect your hair as it dries. Use a cotton t-shirt or a micro-fiber towel to soak up excess water from your hair. Air dry or diffuse to protect from heat damage. Avoid fabrics that will absorb nutrients and moisture from the hair. Sleep on a satin or silk pillow, bonnet, or scarf to keep hair from getting tangled. Add a drop ofLusid Smoothing Serumto your hair to lock in the moisture after conditioning.
