Why Is Wet and Wavy Hair All the Rage in Summer?



One of the most popular keywords for summer hairdos is Wet and Wavy. It’s called Wet and Wavy because it forms waves when the hair is wet. As you learned earlier, different types of hair extensions may have the Wet and Wavy texture including weavings, braids, and wigs. Synthetic products that are not 100% human hair will only mimic Wet and Wavy in some way and will not have the ability to create waves when wet. You can think of when someone with curly hair uses a flat iron to straighten, and then when the hair gets wet, it reverts to its natural curl. The hair extensions that are sold as Wet and Wavy are curly hair that is flat ironed.


1. What are the benefits of Wet and Wavy hair?

The biggest advantage is that you can easily create curls without chemical treatment. You can create curls by simply wetting the hair with water, forgoing the chemical process such as a perm. Since it’s made of 100% human hair, you can use irons to create desirable curls and wet it with water to keep the curls moisturized. It’s usually characterized by smaller, tighter waves than typical wavy hair, and has the advantage of being able to be worn straight or wavy depending on your mood for the day.

2. Why Wet and Wavy Hair is Hot in Summer

Wet and Wavy curls tend to hold better in humid, hot summer weather. Regular curl products like Water Wave, which is not Wet and Wavy, will loosen or dry out a bit in high humidity, resulting in a frizzy look. For Wet and Wavy hair, exposure to water, especially when swimming or doing other water activities in the summer, can cause curls to develop naturally and hold their pattern well, while for other wave products, it can cause waves to loosen. Generally speaking, if you go in the water wearing hair weaves, the hair will get wet and the weaving work will show through, but with Wet and Wavy, the hair will be soaked and curled, creating volume and hiding the weaving for a more natural look.

3. How is Wet and Wavy hair different from others?

Curl types, such as water waves and loose waves, are chemically produced and come with the manufactured curl patterns. Therefore, if you straighten the existing curls with a flat iron, it’s not easy to restore them back to their original shape. But the biggest advantage of Wet and Wavy is that you can switch from wavy to straight and back to wavy at will. Wet and Wavy wigs are among the favorites for wig lovers because they often come in expensive lace-front styles that can be easily transformed into curls by simply wetting them with water.

4. Wet and Wavy styles with all-day moist hair

Basically, Wet and Wavy hair is straight hair that transforms into curly hair when wet with water, but it’s not necessarily free from the frizz if you just spray it with water and leave it alone. So rather than just wetting your hair with water, you can use a spray bottle filled with both water and a good amount of leave-in conditioner, oil, or serum to keep your curls looking pristine. After spraying all over your hair, you can apply hair lotion or other moisturizers as needed to help keep your curls in place. Finally, don’t blow dry your hair, but let it air dry and style it as you wish.

5. Wet and Wavy Hair: Care and Maintenance Comes First

Wet and Wavy hair has many benefits, but to let them shine, you need to take care of it properly. Wet and Wavy hair products tend to be more expensive than other products, so you have more reasons to take care of them and make them last longer. First, you need to moisturize your hair, and as mentioned earlier, a good way to do this is by adding a leave-in conditioner to your water. Afterwards, you’ll need to lock in the moisture with a moisturizer or other products. While your hair is still wet, place a handful of hair in the palm of your hand and move it up and down, clenching it into a fist to secure the curl. Finally, use an oil-based product or serum to keep your curls bouncy. Don’t forget to use a silk scarf or satin pillowcase to avoid tangling your curls overnight.
