The answer to all your question is yes!! We can all achieve waves. Some get them faster than others. What waves are, is organized curls. So if you can get your hair to curl, you can waves. The best way to get your hair to curl is to brush. Make sure you moisture your hair

Gristyle is right to some extent.  Yes, anyone can get waves.  That is correct.  However, there is hair which is best suited to creating waves and this is what is known as Type 1 hair.

Type 1 hair is fine in thickness and tends to be soft rather than coarse.  It has natural wave or curl texture.  Type 1 hair is easy to wave without any chemical interventions.

Type 2 hair is defined as medium in thickness and may be coarse (feels rough to the touch).  This type of hair also has natural wave and curl, but it may need to be softened with the help of a texturizer or relaxer to get waves to form.

Type 3 hair is thick to very thick, coarse to very coarse and very tightly curled.  This type of hair is referred to in slang terms as nappy.  If the hair can not be softened with the proper pomades, creams or lotions, it will have a much harder time forming waves.

Type 4 hair is either naturally bone straight or hast just a hint of wave and/or curl.  This type of hair has no bend.  When the hair has not natural wave or curl it is much harder to achieve perfect waves without chemical intervention.

Ultimately if hair is hard to wave because it is too straight or too kinky curly or wavy the options are to use chemicals to either relax or soften the tight curls and waves or to use a chemical kit to add bend and curl or wave.

Most people don't share this secret.  Some people frown on the use of kits and only value waves which are created 100% naturally through hard work of brushing.

However, the reality is that people of all races can have waves IF they are willing to utilize chemicals to help prepare the hair.

The downside to chemicals is that as the hair grows and forms into the desired waves, the chemicals will eventually grow out of the hair and the kits will have to be reapplied to the roots.  However, it does work.  I know people who have used kits to relax and kits to add texture and they are not African American.
