Charles Austin – April 2016
WaveBuilder: How long have you had waves?
Charles Austin: 2 years competitively
WB: What is your wavebuilding method?
CA: Wake up, add a little bit of castor or coconut oil and brush about 15 minutes with my best wave soft brush. Continue soft brushing throughout the day.
WB: What are some of your favorite products?
CA: My favorite products all come from either naturalwavesproducts.com or rimixwavebutter.com or the Eden bodyworks peppermint and tea tree oil line of products. Since I’ve converted to all natural those lines work well for me and enhance my hair and scalp health in the long run.
WB: What kind of brush do you use, and how many times a day do you brush?
CA: My primary brush is my Best Wave soft brush and I brush about two to three times a day for random spurts of time.
WB: Besides building waves, what do you like to do?
CA: I enjoy helping others attain healthy hair and scalp through proper usage of natural products. When not doing that, playing sports is my next big hobby.
WB: What do others love about your waves?
CA: The softness and health of my “nappy” texture. It goes to show that healthy hair can and will always look good no matter the texture.
WB: Any advice to wavers just starting out with their wave game?
CA: Any brush will get you waves, but time, patience, consistency and determination build elite waves. Stick with what works for you and your hair and don’t follow the hype. Only you understand your hair and scalp and only you brush your waves.
WB: How’s it feel to be WAVE KING?
CA: It feels good to finally be king. I’ve been helping the game for a very long time and finally got one of the few accolades that solidifies my claims to knowing waves.
