Do any of y'all have trouble getting that barely there waves look? How bout beachy waves? I tried the other day for beachy wave look...it was less curly but not "beachy". Any tips?

    If I apply a curl cream like recoil, comb it through and scrunch once, and don't apply gel, then air dry, I get VERY loose wave. Might be what you're looking for. What wave pattern do you normally have? I'm about a 2b.

    haha I think my natural waves are fairly close to that description!

    Otherwise, I'd recommend combing/raking through a medium hold gel or soft curl cream and then lightly scrunching.
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves

    remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!! :read2:
    My hair:
    2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
    My routine:
    Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
    RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
    LI: KCKT or CJSL
    Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

    Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
