Ricardo Gomez – January 2016

Ricardo Gomez is the first Wave King of 2016. He’s got some of the deepest waves we’ve seen in a while. As he says, he brushes “all day everyday!” If you put in the work, you will achieve! Congratulations Ricardo!

Wavebuilder: How long have you had 360 waves? 

Ricardo Gomez: I’ve had waves since I was a kid but took it seriously in 2014.

WB: What is your wavebuilding method? What kind of brush do you use, and how many times a day do you brush?
RG: I always start my wave building method with shower brushing. Then I comb for 5 min, moisturize, and brush for 30 min, then I rag up for at least an hour or 2. Unrag and I start brushing for however long I want my sessions to be. The kind of brushes I use are the Diane 8159 (hard) and the Diane 8169 (soft). I also use Lado Pro #5556 (medium) And I brush all day everyday!

WB: What’s your favorite Wavebuilder product? 

RG: My favorite Wavebuilder product is the Wavebuilder Durag and Wave cap

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

RG: Besides waving, I like to spend time with my family, make music, and cut hair.

WB: What do girls love about your waves? 

RG: Girls love the look and feel my waves. & they always end up drowning.

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

RG: STAY CONSISTENT! Brush & comb every day. Keep your hair moisturized & healthy! Your brush doesn’t move its self so pick up that brush and get to work!

WB: How’s it feel to be Wave King?

RG: It feels great to be up there on the Wall Of Kings and to be known as one of the best wavers in the world. Its a blessing! I want to give a special shout out to my team Underground Elites and to all the wave pages on Facebook including: Wavebuilder, EliteSpins, AllWaves, Waves R Life, World Class Wavers and Natural Elites. And everybody that was motivating me to keep going! #Salute #KTBM #TFYB
