How to Lay Down Waves When Wolfing?
We are here with 3 easy steps for wolfing. Note that these steps are highly effective and suggested by experts.
Choose your Washing Product
If you are going to work on laying down, know that it requires washing. You just cannot grab one product from your supermarket and use it on your head. What if it is bad for our hair texture?
In general, it will do more damage than good. Select a particular product for your hair and stick with that until you find one and use it to wash your hair first. This will clean all the dust and dirt in your hair.
That is not all how you apply your product matters as well. You have probably watched a shampoo commercial where the use of the product in excess is highly encouraged. That is the wrong idea.
Whether you use wave pomade, shampoo, or even a combination of products, remember that just a nickel size amount on your palm is enough to wash your whole hair for a day. Do not overuse. Wait for a while before beginning your next step.
Brush it up, but Comb First!
This is the crucial part. Within 2-3 minutes, you are done with washing; you need to start combing your hair. It helps to distribute your product from the root to the top end of your hair. After a minute or two, switch to brushing.
Now brushing is not like the “ add this to that” kind of work. It’s an art! And mastering it could be a challenge. No matter which product you have chosen( cream or oil, or pomade), know that not all brushes will give you the expected outcome. Whether it is hard or medium-soft, choose the brush that fits you based on your hair texture and hair length( since you are wolfing). Go with the grain( WTG) and follow the natural angle.
Here is an idea. Say you are someone who is wolfing for a whole season. If that is the case, try this for the session- Use a hard brush at the beginning and a soft brush at the end. This will work for laying down waves.

What About Compression?
If you have 360 waves, you need to compress your wave. In other words, put on a Du-rag. This is not something that will take hours to do. Take 15-20 minutes of your time in the morning before going to school or the office. In six easy steps, let us learn how to put on a Du-rag.
- Firstly, place the du-rag on your head.
- Wrap the ties behind the head. Make an “X” beyond your head by taking one tie in each hand and pulling both ties behind the head.
- After you have crossed the lines in the back, you have to cross the ties again in front of the head.
- Tie a tie into a knot at the back of your head. Do not tie it too hard.
- Pull down on the flap which is hanging down your neck underneath for some excellent compression of your hair.
- Fold up the flap if desired by tucking or tying it up.
So, here you have it. Everything you need to know about how to lay down waves when wolfing is out there above. As you can see, it requires effort to make it happen, and effort is the key to everything after all! Don’t you agree?
