From Jheri-curls to afro’s and everything in between, Black men have been rocking all sorts of hairstyles right along with Black women. One of the most popular is the clean-shaven short haircut with waves that many brothers wear way into their older years.
Here’s how to get the same style no matter what kind of hair you have now.
3 Rules To Getting Waves
I. Only brush when hair is moist. One thing to avoid is brushing the hair while it is dry. Only brush when moisturizer has been applied to the waves.
II. Take vitamins. Taking care of hair goes further than just applying products. A good tip for good healthy hair is to take Biotin vitamins. Multivitamins and Biotin vitamins can be purchased at a local pharmacy. Biotin is known for making hair thicker and healthier.
III. Get a good brush. A good one to buy is 100% Boar Bristles Diane brush or another wave brush brand of your choice. It’s a good idea to have both a hard bristle and a soft bristle brush. Sometimes it takes 6-8 weeks or less for some men to form deep 360 waves

- Brush your hair for 1-2 minutes with a wave-brush.
- Put a washcloth in running hot water, squeeze some water from the rag, and then place the hot washcloth on top of your hair and wipe down.
