To be real: naturally wavy

  • by IMAGE

Enhancing the hair that nature gave you is simple when you know how to manage what you’re working with. Holly O'Neill gets the experts’ tips on making the most of your natural texture.


With hairstylist David Cashman,

What products do I need to make the most of my natural wave?

Two favourites of mine are Mr Smith The Foundation and Philip Kingsley Weatherproof Styling Froth, €25.

How should I cut wavy hair to make it easy to style and manage?

Wavy hair responds well to a good chop – let go of dead ends. Talk to your stylist about a shape that works for you while enhancing your natural wave.

Wavy hair tends to be quite dry – is there anything I should try to keep my hair hydrated?

Wavy hair let air dry can be the most beautiful. However, in Ireland, leaving the house with wet hair as we step into winter becomes a challenge. The Dyson Supersonic dries hair at the same temperature throughout, causing less breakage and damage. The best treatment for hydration is Kérastase Nutritive Masquintense Treatment – this done weekly will have your hair feeling silky smooth in no time.
