Choosing the size of your waves.

People frequently ask, “How do I space my waves out more?” The short answer to this question is: you can’t. The size of your waves depends on your hair texture. The curlier your hair is, the smaller your waves will be. Similarly, the straighter your hair is the bigger your waves will be. You may find that your waves are slightly spaced out after the first few months, but this is a result of your hair not yet being fully trained. In other words, your final wave pattern has yet to set in.

It’s very difficult to change your hair texture unless you use a hair texturizer kit (not something I would recommend.) This is mainly because the results you’ll get with texturizer kits are only temporary. Even with a kit, you’d have to brush consistently. The kit only changes the texture of the hair on top of your head, which means that whenever you get a haircut or your hair grows out you’re back to square one. Constant use of a texturizer kit can cause serious damage, particularly hair loss. You may even see bald spots after a few months or in extreme circumstances, you may go bald. For this reason, I would recommend staying away from texturizer kits.

There are no easy ways to achieve waves and there are no magical products that give you instant waves. Just stay on your grind and wait it out. You’ll be a lot happier with the results.
