Well, the title pretty much says all. I'm a natural redhead and my hair color is very pretty, but I always have my hair up in braids or pony tails because if I have it down, it's just a poofy, wavy mess. The waves are uneven and sloppy, and it's not a look I like at all. I would love to be able to have tame, wavy beach hair.
My current routine-
Shampoo vigorously everyday
Conditioner from roots to tips everyday
After shower, flip hair upside down and comb with a normal brush. Then, towel dry it and put it in a braid or up while still wet to save time.
I almost never use a blow-dryer because it makes my hair really poofy, and I almost never air-dry it because it makes the waves really messy and ugly.
What can I do? I just want to be able to have my hair fall freely down in nice waves, instead of the stiff, frizzy mess of waves that I get new.
