Comb Your Pattern Method To Get Better Connects for 360 Waves
I'm pretty sure a lot of you know by now that having good connections is key for 360 waves. It's what gives your wave pattern more stability and makes it look cleaner overall. But how do you go about getting better connections? That's what I'm here to talk about! If you are new to our site, feel free to check out our blog on "How To Get Waves FAST" first!
What is the Best Comb to Use for this 360 Waves Method
The comb that I'm gonna be using is called a Cricket carbon comb. You can find this comb linked below if you would like to buy it. It comes in a set that I highly recommend getting because there are different size combs that you can test and see which of them you like the most, but at the end of the day, you can use whatever comb you feel comfortable with.
The main reason why I like using this type of comb is because of the wide teeth portion. As well as the fact that the material is very strong. A major benefit of Cricket carbon combs is their material has a static-free of property to them to where it does not create a lot of frizz and the design does not lift or snag your hair the way the plastic combs typically do.
Introducing the Comb Your Wave Pattern Method
There are a few methods that you can use to get better connections, but the Comb Your Wave Pattern is by the far the most underrated and simplest for 360 waves.
The Comb Your Wave Pattern Method simply involves combing your wave pattern perpendicular to how your waves form. By combing your wave pattern, you are able to create better connections and improve your overall 360 wave pattern over time.
3 Simply Steps of the Comb Your 360 Waves Pattern Method
There are 3 things to keep in mind when combing your wave pattern with this method:
- Comb your wave pattern in the perpendicular direction that the waves are traveling or forming.
- Comb your wave pattern gently and smoothly
- Comb your wave pattern slowly and methodically
If you can follow these three simple guidelines, you'll be able to create better connections and improve your 360 wave pattern in no time!
When I'm trying to comb my pattern there are two directions you can go. You can comb in the direction the picture above shows or you can comb in the opposite direction as shown below.
Alright, now I'm pretty sure I have some people reading this blog like, "Man, what the heck are you doing J Lew? Why in the heck would anybody want to comb their 360 waves like that?"
Now, most people know about combing against the grain, but when it comes to combing your pattern, the reason why I do this is simply because...it allows my hair to be able to line up with the direction that I want it to go in.
You want to make sure you follow the right path and this is why I recommend this only for 360 waves because if you do not know the proper angle to comb your hair, you are going to create more problems, such as forks in your waves.
Think of this method like a farmer trying to create different rows when they are tilling the land. What they do is they go out there with a rake and they basically create all the different rows to be able to drop the seeds in to grow plants. This is what you are doing with a comb whenever you comb your pattern.
Your goal is to create the rows to help your waves line up in the direction that you want them to go so that they will form the way you desire.
