Water Waving: Fine Natural Hair

Last updated on August 25th, 2020 at 04:35 pm

The process of water waving natural hair isn’t a new one. Actually, I never knew it was a thing you do that had a name. It is however, a really gentle way of using water to bring out the beauty of your natural waves. Of course, this will only work on unprocessed hair. Otherwise known as, natural hair.

I was watching a video by 22nd Century Natural Woman sharing how to transform frizzy natural hair by water waving when I realized, “Hey I do that!”

Now, in her video she just uses her hand to cup water into her hair. I prefer to use a slightly neater method of using water from a spray bottle!

Check out both techniques:

As can you see from the video, the 22nd Century Natural Woman (gotta love the name) has waves upon waves. And, all she uses is water.

This seems like a “special” technique but it really is not. Now, take a look at how I do it using a water bottle for neater application.

Now, my natural hair is not even a fraction of the amount of hair that 22nd Century Natural Woman has. At least, not yet but oh some day! (Side bar: She has a line of hair products too)

Yet, you can see that this technique can be done on basically any hair length. I think you can even do it on any hair texture. Also, coarser textures may need a holding product like gel but the results can be the same.

By the way, if you are interested in the 360 degree sprayer that I used in the video you can find it on Amazon:

So, after watching these two videos, have you realized that you also do water waving?

Did you know this had a name?

  1. I didn’t know it had a name at all. I use leave-in conditioner to “water wave”.
