I cut my dreads off cuz I noticed thinning.my hair starting to grow back.but it's still a little thin.plus my hair got some wavyness to it know.my hair use to be super stright.is there any way to stop the thinning.
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!
Is there a reason why you wash your hair twice with shampoo ?
I can’t believe I found someone with 2a hair! 🥺❤️
When my hair is wet it looks like 2b 2c but it dries like a frizzy 2a
Kaitlyn Vazquez same
I too have 2a hair and I've always called it "stravy" haha. I use Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing spray on my hair when when I'm diffusing it into waves. 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 habe *2b* hair and its *T H I C C*
i have rlly thick 2a any tips?
Ok my hair when i brush it it is straight and wavy but then my hair gets frizzy throughout the day making my mom say i dont brush my hair what do i do
Have you already tried using gel?
My hair is exactly like yours when it’s wet, but it turns like lion’s hair when it gets dry :( I definitely should try your routine. Thank you!
Definitely give it a try :) Hope it will help
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? :(
Miaura Kimchi awesome! Good luck :)
@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
@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
@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.
I'd say you might be using products that are too heavy for your hair or applying too much.
omg finally someone with my hair type. my hair is thick so it takes really long to dry and it weighs down. my hair is medium length.
I don’t have a defuser I got a blow dryer and my hair gets frizzy 🥺
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. :)
Is there a way to get around using a defuser. I only ask as I don't have a defuser and have also given up heat cause heat styling started making my hair break off Your video is great thank you
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.
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!!
You're welcome! :) Very likely you'll see a transformation! I barely use gel nowadays and my hair still has the wave now even without it with all the TLC
I had really long hair but I cut it off since I didn’t know how to take care of it. I reached my butt and now it reaches my boobs. I’m gonna try this :)
Good luck! :) I'm currently growing out my hair to the length you have now haha
Finally, someone with my hair type, except I have LONG 2a hair, yours is very cute and short XD
the best thing about 2a hair is you can go at least a day without brushing only if you keep it in a bun/braid and wash it. or is it just my hair? lol
I actually only brush my hair in the shower or for hairstyles. I just roll out of bed and go for second day hair haha
Finally a video for my hair type!
hi alisa! so glad i found this video, FINALLY a hair routine for 2A hair! thanks for sharing :D i'm planning to start on the CGM soon, and looking to buy the right products. my hair is pretty similar to yours so i hope you could help me out! does the acure shampoo makes your scalp oily/greasy? how long can you go in between washdays?
@Alisa Hayeva aaa you're lovely for this thorough reply! thanks a lot!
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?
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.
yasss 2a gurlss!! 🤟🏻
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
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.
I’m watching this because I have 2a hair but I just wash it like how someone with straight hair would and never do anything to help it out. I want to know how my hair would look like if I actually took care of it lol
Good luck! It's worth it. I'm now at the stage where my hair is so cared for I can go without gel and my waves will still be decent. :)
Thank you for this! I need a routine from somebody who has the same hair type as me!😁
Are you alive?
I'd hope so
Idk if i have your hair type. I have type 2b wavy hair on the front of my hair and than on the back i have weirdo waves that are like two lumps. Is there any hair products for weirdo waves? Hehe.
I'd say look for products focusing on your hair porosity for washing and conditioning, and a gel for styling. :)
As a kid/tween I had wavy hair then I made the mistake of getting a loose perm and it ruined my waves I cut my hair off and I’m regrowing it and it’s growing back wavy again! I want to take care of it so it looks wavy like it used to!
WHY DID YOU LET THE WATER RUNNING WHILE YOU WERE APPLYING THE SHAMPOO?!?!?!
You're so pretty😭😭
Aww thank you!!
I had wavy hair when I was younger. I started up straightening my hair back then and now my hair is straight yet full of frizz with some weird ass waves. I’m starting the CG method but I’m so lost (?)
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.
What would the results be if you didn't diffuse your hair at all and just let it air dry at that point?
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.
For my hair that would mean less volume and longer drying time, but nothing else would change.
for right now I have this type of hair but it used to be a 3a or 3b I got heat damage is their any way I could get it back to that
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.
I was wondering if you do co washes at all and how you do it
Ok, well do you have any tips for me because I have 2a hair and I'm trying to cut using heat on my hair but I have no clue how to style it and I also shower at night
I don't. My hair is quite oily, so co-washing isn't enough for it, it leaves my roots flat.
Swavy lol. Im hoping this is my hair type, cuz right now my hair is just 'straight' with crazy stupid frizz. After a month of this, lets see if I too have swavy hair.
You might also want to check out Swavy Curly Courtney here on YT for more fun tips and tricks that ought to help. 🙄
Who Dunnit omg sameeee🤣🤣
Remember: Frizz is just curls waiting to happen! Deep conditioning treatments are your friend and maybe throw in a protein treatment once a month or so, should improve things considerably.
Good luck! Sounds like it
Are you Armenian
I am not, I am Belarusian. :)
I have a 2aish hair structure? I have a lot of hair but when I let it airdry my hair gets curly and REALLY frizzy at the front and straight in the back. Will this method help? I've never used gel.
Thanks! Im gonna try it
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!
Do you have any solution for straightening 2a hair without flat iron I've been searching this for 2 weeks now and no solutions
If you can afford it try the John Frieda straightening shampoo and conditioner, I have 2A hair and had good luck with it relaxing some of the waves.
@Alisa Hayeva thanks for the tips
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.
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?
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. :)
You are so so beautiful and talented, thank you for this tutorial. I have really coarse, thick, and frizzy hair. The top of my hair is very frizzy and straight-ish, while the bottom of my hair is weirdly wavy and frizzy. I hate it so much, I need to find a hair routine to better my hair and this helped so much!
Thank you & you're welcome! The more you care for your hair the better it becomes :) A little patience and you'll have amazing hair
Liked the video but that water waste is a huge no no
How else do you shower?
Thank you! Actually, never thought about it before you mentioned. I agree, I have to look after the environment more.
Totally trying out this routine !!
Tell me how it goes for you if you do! ;)
Please make more hair videos! You are the only person with actual 2a hair making any sort of hair tutorials.
Jenny Kolber ikr!!
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
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.
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.
same my hair looks wavy when I get out of the shower but then it just looks frizzy when it dries also my 2 sisters and my mom have really curly hair and I’ve always been the straight haired one but recently it’s been transforming or something lol
Who in God's world are you?
Bobby Hansen Brooo ur weird 😂
@IfYouMeetAWolf so you know what an "exhibitionist" is?
@Bobby Hansen Ew.
@Alisa Hayeva you know what an exhibitionist is? Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
@Bobby Hansen lol thank you, I'm not sure when I will, can't promise anything right now
My roots are straight but my length is a 2a lol. I need to try clips to create volume
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. :)
You’re like the only person on yt with a 2a Hair routine finally. Btw I loved it
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!
You're welcome! My hair gets weighed down very easily too! I don't even use a leave-in conditioner for that matter.
how often do u wash ur hair? :~)
I used to every other day, but now since I cut it shorter I do it everyday. I also go to the gym a lot, so you know, have to :)
Tried this for the first time today and the results were 💯! Thank you for this video - very simple, clear and straight to the point ☺️
You're welcome! I'm glad I could help. ☺️
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.
Dagmar E my hair texture is EXACTLY the same as yours!!!
I have the same hair type! May I ask why you wash your hair twice? Is it because it's a sulfate free shampoo?
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.
Yesss finally someone with my hair type Edit- aha thanks for the like
Creative love you
Finally I got the real routine for my hair thanks . Upload more tipz
Alisa Hayeva good luck 👍🏻. Follow me in insta 😍 love you
I recently got a drastic haircut, so now I'm figuring out a routine for short hair, so expect that sometime in the future ;)
Great video! 😊
Alisa, very much enjoyed your wavy hair routine. I have similar hair and interested in the curly girl method to coax out my natural waves. Thank you for your wavy hair videos❣
It's a good tips for everyone.we should try and your hair is so beautiful 👌
@Alisa Hayeva your welcome 🤗
Wow . killer look in black dress.i forget everything see your this look 😍
It's a amazing views 👌🤗
😂😂 very creative!!!!
Thank you! :)
So nice to see more 2a routines! I feel like all I see on youtube and routines for people 2c and up
@Trashwang That's my hair too! There are seemingly no tutorials on youtube for this hair type!
@Emily Pinkerton - Sounds like you and Trashwang need more moisture (deep conditioning) and maybe a protein treatment.
Trashwang Our hair sounds very similar! My strands are also very fine and weightless though, so it’s difficult to maintain definition, it just turns into a poof. I can’t be alone!😭
mianutt that’s because people with 2a hair usually treat it like straight hair. Especially if it’s thin. My hair 2a and very thick and dry, which is kinda annoying because I cannot find anyone else with hair like mine on RU-clip
That’s actually soooo true
Finally someone using good music in a video too! I hate all the super fast music people use in their videos.
I just go with the vibe of the footage I have :)
Awesome ! I think I have similar hair as yours !
I've been on it for 3.5 months and it only gets better!
Yes, I discovered the CG method like 2 weeks ago and I love it !
Great! Are you using the curly girl method too? :)
Your hair is so beautiful!
Thank you ❤️
