From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Short Hair Waves, shortened to just waves, is a very common and sought after hairstyle for African American men. Where in the hair is cropped short to the head in the styling of a 'Caesar Cut' and brushed forward on the sides & front and down to the neck in the back creating the appearance of water like waves of the hair. Some are natural gifted with the ability to have waves while others attempt to achieve the hairstyle through the use of chemicals. Wave caps are worn at night to help preserve the hairstyle but can also be worn after one's hair has been brushed while wet and gelled to help apply pressure to the hair to flatten it down and bring out the waves in the hair. Even though they are usually used for braids, do-rags can also be used either in conjunction with or instead of wave caps. Many people use pomades, such as Sporting Waves, to begin with. However, moisturizers are very important. A good one is Hollywood Beauty Carrot Creme. Waves are brought out by using this process regularly and when the hair is brush repetitively throughout the day. To gain waves is a easy process all you must do is have your hair cut low, make your hair moist by wetting it with water, apply the wave grease, brush it in by using a wave brush(a brush that is specifically made to bring out waves) and finally putting on a wave cap, or do-rag for 30 minutes or overnight.A way to help this is to use hair grease after that process has been completed,so it will stay moist the entire day.
