My Wavy Hair Routine (2a/swavy hair)
Today I'm sharing my wavy hair (2a/swavy) routine with you. I've been on the curly girl method since May 2018 and have already seen a lot of progress and learned a lot about my hair. In this video I show you how I do my hair (both my shower routine and my styling routine). I introduce you to common Curly Girl Method terms, such as "squish to condish" (STC), "scrunch out the crunch" (SOTC), diffusing. Personally, I have fine, low porosity, low density, medium (shoulder length) hair with a 2a/swavy curl pattern, so if you have some of the similar characteristics, it might suit you too. Good luck experimenting with your hair and finding what works best ;)
Here are the products I used for my ...

When I was creating this video I initially thought about creating a DIY/educational video on how to drink more water and how to track your progress. I still show you my way of tracking my water intake, though, in an editorial form, bringing you the art of drinking water and tracking your progress :))) Yours, Alisa S O C I A L M E D I A: INSTAGRAM: alisahayeva

In this video I present my vision of Russia's Saint Petersburg. I could easily call this a travel diary, but this is more of a montage/edit type of thing. The video was created in August of summer of 2017, so you get the chance to see how Saint Petersburg looks like under the sun! The city is definitely worth a visit (at least a short trip). If you are going on a trip there and wonder where to ...

    How should i brush my hair during the day ? 😭

  • That really weird Aquarius kid

    This explains why my hair was so wavy when I was younger, then when I got older it was “straight” but really frizzy and tangled and it was all because I wasn’t taking care of my hair properly.

  • Rachael Wilson
    Rachael Wilson 22 days ago

    I literally always thought I had straight hair until I started doing more research. My dad has amazing curly hair and my mom had 2a hair like this. My sister inherited beautiful soft 2c curls and I was so jealous. Over the years I noticed the waves in my hair whenever I wouldn’t brush out but I thought that was just what happened to straight hair when not brushed out. Boy was I wrong and I’ve been living with 2a-2b hair this whole time 😭

    Okay... but I have this type of hair and justs... do whatever to it idk. Nothing special. It ends up a goddamn poofy mess and I'm forced to straighten it. I try gel, moose, all of that. I had NO IDEA about a gel cast. Like... I was always upset that it was crunchy and looked weird and I would brush it bc no one told me anything different. Now I want to try this out and see if I can get some of my natural wave back. My mom has super wavy hair, my dad has super fine straight hair. I'm in the middle with my moms thickness with just enough wave to not be straight and my dads fine hair. It's the weirdest combo. Nothing works for my hair, so I may have to adjust this... but i wonder if i use this technique i can save myself the headache. Even just the washing technique... not breaking up the hair, drying it 85% and letting the rest hair dry without brushing. That may help me out. Thank you! Idk if my fine hair can handle gel, but I'll have to experiment. I just have so much hair but it's so fine that no one knows what to do with it other than straighten it or full curl it. I dont want either bc I hate using that much heat on it everyday.

    HELLO ALL MY 2A FRIENDS!! I’m 35 and have had pin straight hair my whole life. I’d curl it with a curling iron and it would fall by midday. Due to hormonal changes which I think are early menopause, my hair basically changed texture within the span of a couple months. I have always wanted beachy, wavy hair so I’m so excited I don’t have to pay for it!! Please upload more videos!

    can you at least stop the water while you do your hair? water is a scarce resource on this planet and a lot of people don't have access to it. It really baffles my mind how a lot of people do not seem to feel anything when they waste water just because they can. it was running the whole time behind you and it makes me rso angry how ignorant you are!

I like that it's more affordable than Ouai's texture spray, but it does make for some frizz at my roots. Still searching for the perfect wavy hair product!

    I have 2a hair and just started a Wavy-Girl Method a week ago but even with gel my hair falls flat again after 1-2h .. Maybe because it is still transitioning. But it is so frustrating. It looks pretty ok already (still a little frizzy) but soon all the waves are gone and it looks weird. Any ideas guys? :(

      @Alisa Hayeva Well as for the hot scissors that worked very well! My hair is already more bouncy and feels healthier. But it is still dry so there ist a long way to go! I will update after the CurlSys cut though :D

    • Alisa Hayeva
      Alisa Hayeva 5 months ago

      @Miaura Kimchi Oh yeah! Dry and damaged hair is very unlikely to be able to become bouncy again. Honestly, when I first started CGM I had long hair that was down to the middle of my back and nothing could help my heat damaged dry hair so I cut it around shoulder length and I had no problems with my hair after whatsoever. P.S. Tell me how that cut goes! I'm really curious whether it's a game changer. I don't have any curly/wavy hair hairdressers in my city, so I'm wondering haha

    • Miaura Kimchi
      Miaura Kimchi 5 months ago

      @Alisa Hayeva Well my hairdresser told me possible reasons. My hair is hella dry and the ends were dead. She said it had no strength to bounce up. So I got a hot scissors-cut and in a few weeks I will get my first CurlSys cut. I am so excited! Thank you for your kind words. I am still trying to find the right products for me.

    • Alisa Hayeva

      You can get a separate diffusor nozzle and use a decent amount of gel to minimise frizz. If you'll still get frizz after that, try a leave-in conditioner. :)

    • Alisa Hayeva
      Alisa Hayeva 6 months ago

      Thank you! :) You can air dry your hair, but the results might not be the same. I don't get heat damage from the diffuser though, I use it on cool (sometimes warm, but never hot) setting.

  • Art by Hohlee
    Art by Hohlee 6 months ago

    this is so informative! i took notes and everything 😂 my hair used to be curly when i was a kid and i had it shorter (mum kept my hair short when i was little cos it was so thin) but then i grew it really long and only the ends would curl up and the rest was dead straight, but now (i'm 22) it's pretty long again but I'm getting like some strands that have a nice wave and other bits that are like straight and kinda frizzy, i thought for the longest time i'd lost the curls i had when i was a kid and i was just a girl with straight hair wanting what she can't have lol but i think I'm just not taking care of my hair properly, i tend to air dry it because if i comb it or blow dry it dries straight but hopefully using gel and a diffuser will help get a more uniform wave! that was really long but thanks for sharing your routine!!

    • Alisa Hayeva

      Hi Lola! You're welcome :) The shampoo doesn't make my hair greasy, however, it does make my mum's hair greasy, so I would be careful if you think it might be an issue for you. I wash my hair every 3-4 days now. I've also found another great shampoo and conditioner combo that works great for me. Currently I use Nature Box pomegranate seed oil shampoo and conditioner. Also tried Nature Box almond oil shampoo and conditioner. Just as light weight and smells amazing.

    hey!! it is so nice to find someone with 2a hair!! just a question, how do you revive curls for day 2 hair, 'cause i have 2a hair and the 2nd day looks just like thick and poofy. what do u do on the 2nd day?

    • Alisa Hayeva
      Alisa Hayeva 8 months ago

      Hey hey! :) Lately I wake up with okay looking hair, so I don't. But before that I used to spray my hair with water enough to make the strands look sleek and quite wet, scrunch my hair carefully with my hands and let it dry. IMPORTANT: you must have gel in your hair from the day before for the refresh to work with just water. In extreme cases of tangles I sometimes also brush my hair when it's dry and then spray it with water and then scrunch. Might also use a microfibre towel to scrunch sometimes if I sprayed too much water on my hair.

    I have swavy hair too. When I brush it a few times through out the drying process, it will be about 95% straight by the time it's dry. When I don't brudh it at all and let it air dry, I'll have some week waves in my hair. I usually wear my hair straight but I'd like to try to enhance the waves I have a bit

    • Alisa Hayeva
      Alisa Hayeva 8 months ago

      That's the same thing that happens to my hair if I brush it. The wave has become a bit stronger though, so now it's not as easy to get rid of it if I brush it out.

    • Alisa Hayeva
      Alisa Hayeva 11 months ago

      If you've been straightening your hair for while with a flat iron, most of the length is most likely quite damaged, so you'll need to grow most of your hair out for it to get back to its natural state. But if your hair is not super damaged and fried you might be able to restore at least some of the wave and maybe more.

  • Katelyn Blessing

    What would the results be if you didn't diffuse your hair at all and just let it air dry at that point?

      THE SPiCY SQUAD 2 4 months ago

      Alisa Hayeva it also prob wouldn’t be as wavy, because the heat from the air is drying it and heating it to stay in that scrunched pattern.

    • Alisa Hayeva
      Alisa Hayeva 11 months ago

      For my hair that would mean less volume and longer drying time, but nothing else would change.

    • Alisa Hayeva

      You might be able to make your hair look a little better, but the ultimate solution is to cut off the damaged hair and let it grow out. There is not much you can do about damaged hair.

      It should definitely help, but don't expect your hair to transform overnight. I've stuck to this method for 9.5 months now and the transformation is mind blowing hahah. Definitely use gel! Gel is the one product I can never skip cause it keeps my hair from looking like a cloud of frizz and helps define the waves. P. S. My hair was the reverse of yours, straight in the front, slightly wavy in the back + it was straight down to my ears. Good luck!

    • Alisa Hayeva
      Alisa Hayeva Year ago

      If I need straight hair, I make sure I don't scrunch it in any way and all movements I do (like brushing for example) elongate the waves. Just brushing my hair while it dries is usually enough for me as well as using a heavier conditioner. But if I have a kink of some sort, a spray it with some water and blow dry with a brush on low to medium heat. Also if I do a too heavy for my hair mask it is weighed down and looks mostly straight. But beware, a mask might not only make your hair look straight, but your roots might look greasy as well.

    • Tess Hertz
      Tess Hertz Year ago

      my best luck has been a keratin shampoo and conditioner and also deep conditioning every wash. maintaining moisture in my 2a hair's ends is a challenge and the keratin and moisturized ends personally loosens my waves. then let mostly airdry. tresume keratin thermal protectant and cool blow dry all the way dry. follow with barrel brush drying on high heat with a concentrated nozzle and constant movement. little damage, great result

    How do you keep your hair from getting messed up while you sleep?

    • Alisa Hayeva
      Alisa Hayeva Year ago

      Sleep on a silk pillowcase. If that doesn't help, take a spray bottle filled with water and spray your hair in the morning till it's a bit wet and scrunch. That's what I usually do and the leftovers of gel from the wash day get activated and you just have a gel cast again and scrunch it out again when it dries. :)

    I'm not really sure but I think I might have the same type of hair bc my hair is frizzy no matter what and when I take a shower I let my hair air dry without brushing it and I notice some waves and when I brush out my damp hair I still see some waves and by the time my hair gets completely dry my hair gets frizzy and the part that j don't get is that I rarely even use heat in my hair and my hair is still dry, frizzy, etc

    • Cindy S
      Cindy S Year ago

      NEVER use a regular bath terry towel on your hair. ONLY use a microfiber one or a tee shirt. Now, first - shampoo your hair with clarifying shampoo to remove all the stuff stuck to your scalp and hair. (buildup) from using silicone and sulfates. Suave Clarifying is fine and very cheap. THEN I would give my hair a "treatment" of a good conditioning treatment left on for a at least a half hour. I put a shower cap on while doing this. The line called Curls is safe and affordable - I saw it at Target. And there are others. THEN rinse as she shows you then add the gel. The treatment will help put moisture back in your hair and the gel will put a protective coating to prevent frizz. The longer time you do the routine, over months, the better your hair will get. If you have any "S" pattern in your wet hair, then YES you have wavy hair. THEN start to use ONLY the sulfate free shampoos and silicone free conditioners the way it's shown thereafter FOREVER. Don't brush your hair unless you want it straight. Even if you wear it straight all these things are healthi Also you don't have to wash all the time. Daily is WAY too much. Look for youtubers called Penny Tovar and BiancaReneeToday. They list all the safe products and even did two videos shopping together and reading labels. Even though they have very curly ethnic hair - that won't matter. You just need to learn how to shop for products and what works for your hair.

    • Alisa Hayeva

      I actually thought my hair was straight all my life until once I air-dried it and discovered that it had some very slight wave to it. And before I just thought my hair was unruly. It would get tangled a lot and have frizz that looked like a ton of baby hairs sticking out all over my head.

      Yeah, my roots are kinda straight as well, but now that I'm about 6 months into the curly girl method, I see some strands curling up from the root! Do try the clips, but get small ones cause the big ones that I have aren't as comfortable to work with and sometimes can leave creases in my hair. :)

    Great tips! Ive just started the cgm but my hair is 2a-2c and find that a lot of other interpretations of cgm weigh my hair down. Will try your tips!

    • Alisa Hayeva

      You're welcome! My hair gets weighed down very easily too! I don't even use a leave-in conditioner for that matter.

    I just found this video after looking for 2a hair. Before puberty my hair was smooth and pin straight, when I hit puberty it started waving and becoming thicker but now in my 20s my hair is finer (about the same amount as your hair) and I think I'm treating it wrong. I have come so far to get a sulfate and silicone free shampoo and conditioner and when I wash it it has about the same wavy pattern as yours (which is why I think I may be 2a and do not have straight hair) but when my hair dries is looks straighter but not smooth, and when I brush it it goes frizzy and some strands of hair slightly wave. I see you use gel, would this together with your scrunching, microfiber towel etc. maybe help my hair look normal??? I hope you'll respond 😱

      @Dagmar E - You could also try using a curl enhancer like: Uncle Funky's Daughter's Curl Magic, or Jessicurl Rockin Ringlets. If you don't want to shell out the money, try this DIY: 1 tbls Epsom salt in 1 cup hot distilled water. Pour into a spray mister bottle, shake until the salt is dissolved and once cooled, mist hair lightly [key word: LIGHTLY]. Use a little bit of leave-in conditioner with this treatment and deep condition at least every other week, or more often, because it can be a bit drying on your hair. Use a lightweight alcohol free gel as needed.

      My hair was curly as a toddler but when I was 7 or 8 I got pin straight hair. Now as a teen I have wavy hair. 😁

      Ive started plaiting mine wet and letting it dry overnight and that holds for a week and sort of goes with my natural wave pattern in case that helps someone

      Dagmar E my hair sounds exactly like yours, right down to it's history of being pin straight before puberty! What to do with it. I am trying to figure out if it wants to be straight of 2a wavy these days.

    I have the same hair type! May I ask why you wash your hair twice? Is it because it's a sulfate free shampoo?

    • Alisa Hayeva
      Alisa Hayeva Year ago

      Not really, I've always washed my hair twice even with a sulfate shampoo because somehow I can never get the back part of my hair 100% clean from the first time.

      @Trashwang your hair is exactly like mine, dry in the ends, thick and 2c, is not straight, not curly, so tutorials for this type of hair are very hard to find🤷‍♀️

    • bell J

      I think 2a is not a common hair type. I have it and is difficult to work with and very hard for me to keep it in a style. It's windy where I am and it takes barely a breeze to blow it all crazy.
