Develop Thick 360 Waves In Your Hair Quickly!
360 waves are a unique hairstyle for shorter hair that has been greatly popular with African American men for many generations. When very short hairstyles are methodically brushed & “trained” often, a natural looking pattern of waves form from the top to the perimeter of the head in a 360 degree circular pattern, every mans man’s wave pattern will differ from the others like snowflakes. It is recommended to start your 360 wave pattern off with a fresh haircut.
There are so many different techniques for attempting at get 360 hair waves. This is a proven technique that will work amazingly. You must have a few “tools” to get your 360 waves up & running.
A hair cut – 360 waves start better with very short hairstyles, so have your hair cut between the lengths of 1/4″ – 1/2″
At least, 2 Du-Rags (only wearing 1 will wear it out much too fast)
Firm bristled, hoarse hair brush – Try a Diane hair wave brush
Shea Butter or Pink Oil Moisturizer, a good moisturizer is a must. You will NOT develop waves with dried out hair.
A good 360 waves pomade – Murray’s, Duke & Dax hair wave pomades are all great products with proven success.
Hot or very warm water
Great persistence (developing 360 waves takes weeks for most guys)
Now it’s important to be aware of your hair texture type. If you have soft & curly hair – If this is your hair texture you may begin the 360 waves process with step 1.
If you have medium hair (this is the most usual type), meaning that your hair lies down naturally with no extra effort, this is considered medium. You can begin the process with step 1.
But say that you have very coarse hair (heavy, tightly curled, thick)? There is no need to worry, many guys with coarse hair feel that they can’t achieve 360 waves no matter how much wave pomade they use or how much intense brushing they do. They are wrong, it can be done, the key is to texturize the hair first, to soften it. S-Curl and Duke are two really great products to use. Follow kit set-up instructions thoroughly. Leave the texturizer in your hair for no more than 5 minutes. Use the neutralizing shampoo and allow hair to dry. Remove excess water from hair with a bath towel. Now you can begin the 360 waves process with step 2.
HOW TO GET 360 WAVES. . . THE STEPS TO SUCCESS
STEP 1 -Start with clean hair. A quality conditioning shampoo would be best. Follow the simple shampooing directions & then blot hair dry with a towel.
STEP 2 -Apply the moisturizer of your choice to your hair. Apply a generous amount and massage into scalp.
STEP 3 -Begin brushing the hair starting at the crown(top) area. Brush downward from the top EVENLY all the way around for at at least 5-10 mins, preferably 20 mins.
STEP 4 -Soak your towel in hot water. Wring it out well.
Lay the towel on your hair for about 2 minutes or more. Apply some pressure to the towel so that your hair can absorb the moisture & softens. After the 2 minutes, take the towel off.
STEP 5 -Put a generous amount (size of a silver dollar) of quality 360 wave pomade in your hair. It may look white at first, as if you’ve applied too much, don’t worry. It’s not too much.
STEP 6 -Quickly restart your brushing cycle, brushing your hair starting at the top area & the brushing downward from the top evenly all the way around for about 10 minutes.
STEP 7 -Tie your hair down with a Doo-Rag. This is very necessary in order to “train” your hair to lay in a thick 360 wave pattern and prevent you from messing up your waves while you sleep. If you don’t wear a head covering every night, you are hurting your progress.
STEP 8 -Repeat steps 2-8 once a day for 28 Days, shampoo/condition every 7 days. You are guaranteed to have 360 waves!
Don’t get a haircut for 3 weeks after you start this routine. A lineup is OK, but not a haircut in this first phase. After the first 28 day phase, you should get a haircut every 2 weeks or so. View each hair cut as the next installment of deeper set of 360 waves and never stop training your hair at night with wave cap.
Once your hair grows back to full length from the first, 2nd & 3rd cut, you’ll notice thick wave patterns EVEN MORE than the first 3 weeks of development, you’ll see a strong wave pattern on even short hair! Just keep in mind that brushing your hair evenly and regularly is a must. Tons of fellas have said that they can only get waves on the top or on the sides, this is because they didn’t brush evenly on a regular basis. Areas that are not brushed thoroughly do not wave up. So please, follow these instructions and your hair will have more wave than an ocean!
