I've Hidden My Wavy Hair For A Decade — Today I Try A Cult-Favorite Product For Wavy Hair

Let's see if it's too good to be true!

Hellooooo, party people! My name is Hannah, and I have a confession: I have wavy hair. But not like...pretty wavy hair. More like a frizzy, poufy mess.

When I was younger, I had stick-straight hair. As I grew up, it got a tiny bit wavier, and then one day it just...changed. Into the rat's nest I have today.

I pretty much always blow it dry, but I decided — against my own wishes — to let my hair air-dry and take another picture for the purposes of this post. Be warned — it's not pretty.

I'm obsessed with Brad Mondo on YouTube, and I've seen his "Wavetech" product alllll over TikTok and YouTube. So I decided, what the hell? Might as well give it a go!

Now I will be following Brad's tips as seen in this video from last year. In the video, Brad uses a mannequin with naturally straight hair, but I've seen some amazing transformations of people with curly hair in one of his "reacts" videos.

So here we go! I started with wet hair, as per Brad's instructions. He suggested leaving it pretty soaked, just not quite dripping. That felt too wet to me, so I ended up using a T-shirt to towel-dry my hair a bit. Then I took a large-tooth comb, put a BUNCH of product on it as Brad suggested, and went to town brushing my hair!

Brad suggested not stopping until it literally feels and sounds as if you still have shampoo in your hair, which I did. Like, you can see how saturated my hair is:

He also suggested sectioning and flipping over the top portion of your hair to make sure you coat the bottom. After that, you basically just go to town scrunching.

Brad also suggested "twisting" pieces — aka twisting them around your finger and holding them in a coil for a second, then releasing them.

For an extra ~oomph~, Brad also suggested clipping your hair up at the roots once it gets a little drier. That way, you get extra volume.

And then you just wait for it to dry! This is how my hair looked after it dried completely.

I clipped back my bangs because, being the healthiest (since they're the shortest) part of my hair, they curled up a ton and I looked as if I was auditioning for Christine in The Phantom of the Opera.

Now, was it frizz-free? Definitely not. But again, I'm working with super-damaged hair here, and honestly, I didn't think the frizz was noticeable if you weren't close up and under harsh bathroom lighting. I also think it was better than when I've scrunched my hair with other products.

Here it is in action, and here are my final thoughts!
