Ras ThaWaver – February 2016

Ras is one of the most dedicated wavers on the pages right now. He’s been a contender in a few wave battles over the past year and continued to step up his game. February is his time to be crowned!!

WaveBuilder: How long have you had waves? 

Ras ThaWaver: I’ve been serious waving for 2 years but I’ve always had waves.

WB: What is your wavebuilding method?

RT: My method is to start out by combing out my hair, than if I need product I’ll apply the product. Than I use whatever brush I’m using and I brush until I feel like I have made progress, I brush for quality sessions, not quantity(number of strokes).

WB: What are your favorite WaveBuilder products?

RT:  I like the WaveBuilder Cocoa and Shea pomade, I’ve used that and also the Wave cap, which I’ve used as a second form of compression.

WB: Besides building waves, what do you like to do?

RT:  Besides waving I go to school and I graduate with a Criminal Justice Bachelor degree in May 2016. I also like playing golf, basketball, and hanging with friends and family, also working.

WB: What do girls love about your waves? 

RT: Girls love them and always ask to touch my waves. Some want to brush them, but when I let them brush, they do it wrong haha.

WB: Any advice to wavers just starting out with their wave game?

RT:  For newcomers it’ll first be trial and error. You have to learn what products and brushes work for you. It also takes time and patience!

WB: How’s it feel to be WAVE KING?

I’m just here so I won’t get fined! I stopped running in June and scalped my hair, than started running again in October, I lost a few battles but to worthy candidates. Shoutout to the group @Elitespins on Instagram. Also to Racheal Boyd a former WK, she’s helped me a lot! There’s many others I could thank too. Follow me on Instagram and YouTube @rasthagreat.
