360, what did u use for your waves and what are the steps to it.



This is the method I used after I got that jacked up cut a month ago, as yall can see it works.

MATERIALS NEED:

1. 2 soft brushes and 2 medium brushes
2. A couple of du-rags
3. Carrot cream and doo gro
4. Shampoo and conditioner
5. A timer or clock
6. Facial cleanser


MORNING ROUTINE IN/OUT OF SHOWER:

*soft brush only*

1. Place your head under the flow of water and brush each section for 30seconds.
2. Rub in shampoo in the direction of your desired wave pattern and then brush in the shampoo for 1-2minutes each section.
3. Rinse out shampoo while brushing.
4. Rub in conditioner, brush in for 20sec each side and leave it in
until your done showering.
***shampoo/condition hair every 2-3days and on off days just brush in shower for a couple of minutes***
5. Use a towel to get rid of the extra water.
6. Apply Carrot cream in hair and brush each side for a minute, then du-rag it.


NIGHTLY BRUSHING ROUTINE:

1. Apply a generous amount of carrot cream to top of head.
2. With 2 medium brushes, brush the top of your head for 5minutes.
3. Apply generous amount of carrot cream to the back of your head.
4. With 2 medium brushes, brush the back of your head for 5minutes.
5. Apply generous amount of carrot cream to both of your sides.
6. With 2 medium brushes, brush both of your sides for 5 minutes.
7. Repeat steps 1-6 with a soft brush, and instead of brushing for
5minutes brush for 10minutes.

*steps 1-7 takes about  45minutes to complete. I usually do steps 1-7
twice.

8. When done brushing, clean your face with a facial cleanser.
*apply doo gro if your hair is thinning or if you want it to grow faster*

9. Throw on a fresh du-rag

after:pic taken on august 1st

THE END

As i read i keep seeing this carrot creme conditioner popping up and i'm wondering if its right for me man, don't mean to sound like a newbie, but i am! help a brother out!


Welcome to the site homie.

The key to getting your pattern to look its best is to first decide which direction you want your waves to go in. Most of us here brush our hair in the 360pattern, but some brush different ways to make their waves unique.

Second, once you decide your brushing pattern stick with it, don't change it at all.

Use products that promote strong healthy growing hair. You don't have to use products that is marketed to people with waves like POMADES, AND WAVE CREAMS cause they are usually not healthy for your hair. Take a look through the site and you'll notice the most popular products are not the ones that are intended for waves.

I got more tips I can tell you, if you got any specific questions PM me or post in any related topic and i'll hook you up.

its okay to use a hard brush but if you really care about your wave pattern you  should use a soft brush just as much or even more than the hard.

hard brushes tend to make your waves come in quicker but kind of crooked, with soft brushes your waves come in a little bit slower than a hard brush but they come in straighter than a hard, and over time it straightens out more and more.


you should not brush your hair with a hard brush for a long period of time when your hair is wet cause when your hair is wet it is the weakest. a hard brush can cause your hair to thin and break. you should only use a soft or medium brush when doin the h2o method.

Always wash your hair before you get a haircut, especially if your goin to a barber shop, you don't want to be in the chair and they start cutting you hair and there is flakes flying everywhere. Wash your hair and don't put any type of thick grease or pomade in your hair. A lil Carrot cream, or a lil pink oil lotion is okay in your hair so you hair isn't dry, but only very little.

YOU SHOULDN'T USE POMADES EVERYDAY. POMADES ARE GOOD FOR HOLDING DOWN YOUR HAIR, AND HELPING YOUR WAVES DEVELOP. THE BAD THING ABOUT POMADES IS THAT IT CAN CLOG YOUR PORES, MAKE YOU BREAK OUT WITH ACNE, NOT HEALTHY FOR YOUR HAIR, LIMITS THE AIR THAT YOU SCALP NEE TO BREATHE, I THINK YOU GET THE POINT. IF YOUR GOING TO USE A POMADE USE IT LIKE ONCE EVERY 2-4DAYS.

Kits aren't good to start with. They don't create waves, you can posibly lose your waves if you leave it in too long.

KITS CAN DAMAGE YOUR SCALP, AND HAIR, AND CAN CAUSE YOUR HAIR TO FALL OUT. A KIT IS NOT A SHORTCUT TO WAVES, AND THEY DON'T LAST LONG.

It depends on how dedicated you are, it took me about a month to get my waves spin. for some it takes anywhere between 2-4 months. you gotta brush everyday and do the work in order to reap the rewards.

YES, DON'T EVER USE A HARD BRUSH WHEN YOU GOT A REAL LOW LOW CUT LIKE A LIGHT CEASAR CAUSE YOUR SCALP DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH HAIR TO PROTECT IT FROM THE HAR BRISTLES. THE HARD BRUSH CAN DAMAGE YOU SCALP AND CAUSE YOUR HAIR TO THIN.

ALSO ITS ALL IN THE WAY YOU BRUSH AND HOW LONG YOU BRUSH FOR, CAUSE SOME DUDES BRUSH REALLY HARD AND SOME LET THE BRUSH GLIDE OVER THERE HEAD GENTLY, SOME BRUSH FOR 30 MINUTES AND STOP AND OTHERS BRUSH FOR LIKE 1-2 HOURS AND THEN STOP.

THE MAIN REASON I SAID NO IS BECAUSE USUALLY NEWBIES TO THE WAVE GAME HAVE THIS IDEA THAT THE HARDER THEY BRUSH THERE HAIR THEN THE FASTER AND DEEPER THE WAVES ARE GONNA COME IN.

Its a moisturizer.

Do you need it? Well it wouldn't hurt to try it. It helped me out a lot and others also.

Its a light moisturizer that washes out easily, softens, and helps make hair more manageable. Leaves your hair healthy, strong, and fights against breakage.

I use the one made by 'hollywood beauty'....I think that's the one more commonly used. Another brand is main n' tail. The price for the hollywood beauty carrot cream ranges from $3.00-$5.00. I don't know how much the other one caost cause I never used it.

it all depends on how you like your hair cut. what you just described is a against the grain cut, i get it all the time and love it. my pics prove that there is nothing wrong with it.  other people get the opposite which is a with the grain.

HERE'S A SIMPLE METHOD ON HOW YOU SHOULD BRUSH:

1. Pick your favorite pomade, grease, gel or moisturizer, and apply to one section of you hair.

2. DependinG on your hair texture and hair length use a soft, medium or hard brush and brush that section for 10-15 minutes straight(don't stop). Add more grease, or moisturizer as needed

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 with the other 3 sections of your head and put on your du-rag.

4. Throughout the day occasionally take out your brush and brush for a couple of minutes.

5. Repeat this everyday and in 1-2 weeks you should see some good results.

*brushing is the key to get waves, you have to brush everyday and not slack for them to come in.

there's no need for it, pomade is not good for your hair anyway. if your gonna mix a pomade with anything i suggest mixing it with a good moisturizer, like 2/3 moisturizer and 1/3 pomade. it would make your favorite misturizer hold better and your hair is still getting the nutrients it need to stay healthy and strong.

SJAY'S RESPONSE

learning to cut ur own hair takes practice. so if ur cutting ur hair for the first time for a special event, i suggest u get ur hair cut by sum1 who knows wut they are doing. as long as u have the clip gaurd on, u should be able to cut ur hair pretty evenly all around. tapering and fades take practice. the tricky part lies within linin up ur edge. its easier if u do this wit a beard and mustache trimmer becuz they are smaller and easier to handle. use a mirror when doing the back of ur head, and dont be afraid to ask sum1 to edge ur back up for u if u cant. cuz its hard if ur not used to it. good luck to ya.




ALSO TAKE YOUR TIME, PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, IT TAKES MANY TRIES TO GET GOOD AT CUTTING YOUR OWN HAIR. START OFF SIMPLE, LIKE WITH DOING A ALL EVEN CUT AND THE AFTER A FEW TRIES WORK ON TAPERING AND FADES.

there is to ways to cut your hair, 1 is with the grain and the other is against the grain. the direction you want it to be cut is all up to you. i cut my hair against the grain, and there is nothing wrong with that(look at my pics, those are all ATG cuts). most people who have waves are afraid to get their hair cut against the grain cause they think they gonna lose their waves(my pics are proof that that myth is only a myth, theres no truth to it).  personally i think ATG is better than WTG. but thats all up to you.

What do I  to get deeper waves.



1. Stop getting frequent haircuts.
2. Grow your hair out as long as you posibly can(for atleast 6-7weeks or till your hair is over a inch).
3. Continue to brush daily.
4. Depending on your hair texture and as you hair gets longer you might need to change the type of brush you need to use(from soft to a harder brush).

you dont need a lot, just enough to keep your hair moist while brushing, and when it starts to dry add more and continue to brush.

Natural waves look better, feel better, and you hair is in better condition.

When you use kits you can possibly damage your scalp causing hair loss, and burn your hair. Kits are not healthy for hair even if its done rite. Take my advice this is one shortcut you don't want to try.
