From the conk to the hi-top fade to locks, black men are famous for our meticulous hair styles but non other takes the crown like the 360 Waves. Seen on some of our beloved brethren celebrities from Jay-Z to AZ to Blair Underwood, this popular look is based on the 360 angle hair pattern and is a sought after look for those striving to achieve a short, natural textured look. But first you must understand: it takes a patient and determined individual and luckily J Carter Men has a line of unique products, charted for all hair types and textures, that can aid in achieving the perfect wavy crown.
Step 1: Prep with Drench Curl Activator
A head of dry, clean hair, along with a great booster, is the most important step in achieving this look. The Drench Curl Activator is the perfect hydrator to build a foundation for waves or curls. The product moisturizes the scalp and revitalizes your hair follicles and ensures a defined wave pattern thanks to a blend of botanicals like Rosemary, Nettle and Sage.Tip: Spray liberally, avoiding the eyes, for all-day softness and hydration.
Step 2: Treat + Set with Wave Krave Soothing Pomade
After prepping with the Drench Hydrator and wiping off any excess product, apply a generous amount of the Wave Krave Soothing Pomade. Now this is not your father’s Murrays or Dax Hair Dressing. This product, comprised of Shea Butter, Mango Butter and Soy Oil, goes on smooth to sculpt, tame and lock in waves without a greasy or obnoxiously shiny finish. Also it doubles as a beard and mustache styler and many have substituted as a body moisturizer as well.Tip: Apply and massage into the scalp for equal distribution and then even out with a hard bristle brush in the direction your hair is growing. You may need to repeat this process 1-2 times a day.
Step 3: Finish with Mane Tame Spray Shine
After the hair has been brushed properly, starting at the crown area of your head and and around in an even manner, tie up with a doo-rag and allow to set depending upon your desired look. Once you remove the head dressing immediately finish the style with a few spritzes of Mane Tame Spray Shine. This oil sheen seals the deal and lock every hair place for a polished and neat finish.Tip: Spray every inch of your entire head to ensure complete coverage. So remember these 3 important steps and you will achieve the perfect set of waves!
