I think I speak for all of us when I say that we want our hair to look their absolute luscious, voluminous best at all times. Period. I want to look like a queen even when I have just woken up. (I know it’s unrealistic, but a girl can hope!)
But sometimes it just seems it’s too much work, or there’s just not enough volume. Sometimes the luster’s missing, and no matter what you do, you can’t figure out what to do to get your fine wavy hair to look the best they can! And it is always a hassle to find the right conditioner, the perfect shampoo, or just the perfect styling tools!
Fret not! I am here to help you make your hair look their gorgeous best. I have compiled a list of 10 products for wavy hair type to help you make your hairstyling problems vanish. The list has everything from shampoos, conditioners, styling sprays, and even an awesome curling iron set! So, make sure you go through the entire list, you’ll definitely find something you like.
What kind of hair would these products work best for? All of these products would work with type 2a, 2b, and 2c wavy hair. But this list is suited more to hair that is fine, struggle with getting more volume, and give you a hard time styling it.
Now, that we have that out of the way, let’s get right into the good stuff!
The first product on the list is by Olaplex! They are a famous brand based out of California used by millions of people worldwide. They use their own patented technology in their products, so rest assured about their uniqueness. (They claim to have about 100 worldwide patents.) This particular Bond Maintenance Shampoo is unique. Why? Because It is vegan, pH Balanced, not tested on animals, Parabens free, Phthalates free, and obviously because it is Olaplex’s own technology. (True for most of Olaxplex’s products.)
The best thing about Olaplex No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo is that it works on the molecular level, which means that it repairs and moisturizes your wavy hair from the root level to leave with you full, frizz-free hair that looks fabulous and feels marvelous! The reviews by the millions of people who have tried Olaplex’s formula say very positive things about it.
While the price is on the higher side but that’s because of the quality of the product. If you’re looking for a product that heals, nourishes your hair with a proven and patented formula, you should try this one out!
Next on the list is this amazing Wavy Hair Masque by DpHue.
DpHue was co-founded by Justin Anderson, who is an ‘A-list’ Celebrity Stylist. He has worked with some of the biggest stars of Hollywood like Jennifer Aniston, Margot Robbie, Brie Larsson, Miley Cyrus, and many others! If these famous people are using it, there must be some merit to their quality! Justin’s experience and expertise speak for itself, you’ll definitely feel it in the products too.
Enough about the brand, let’s talk about why this particular product has made it to this list. The answer is simple. It’s the ingredients and the results. This Hair Masque has the goodness of ACV, Sunflower seed extract, Rosehip, Avocado, and Coconut Oils. All of these ingredients provide your hair with the nutrients required to heal and grow naturally. They’ve designed this hair masque with the highest quality Apple Cider Vinegar. DpHue has used a formula that specifically targets the most damaged parts of your hair and heals it overtime.
Remember, the base of fantastic, smooth hair is healthy hair. You must put some time into nourishing your hair so that your hair can be looking great at all times. This wavy hair masque by DpHue will accomplish just that for you. Use it once a week, and you’ll be thanking yourself down the line.
Not completely natural.
It does precisely what the name says. This ‘leave-in’ conditioner by UNITE detangles your hair in seven seconds! It is effortless to use and very effective.

This product is a must-have for chemically-treated hair as it will help a lot with the tangling issues.
Verb’s Ghost Hair Oil is not your average hair oil; it is much better. It won’t weigh hair down or clump them up. Instead, it will revitalize the hair and disappear like a ghost! And it’s easy to use as well. Just take 2-3 drops (depending on your hair length) on damp hair or dry hair to get rid of frizz and a stunning shine to your hair. If you use on wet hair, it’ll add as protection against heat while styling. Likewise, if you use it on dry hair, it’ll add instant shine and leave your hair really smooth.
What makes the Verb’s Ghost Hair Oil so good? The answer lies in the ingredients! To moisturize, detangle your wavy hair, it uses Moringa seed oil, which helps to keep your hair weightless. Other vital components include bamboo extracts, hydrolyzed soy protein to strengthen the hair follicles from the root and retain as much moisture as possible.
Suppose you’re wondering where this brand is from, its based out of New York and made by people like you and me. Verb was created to minimize the divide between the drug store and high-end hair care; to make good hair products at a price that doesn’t break the bank! You should definitely try this one out and see the goodness of the Ghost Hair Oil for yourself.
Contains a lot of silicone compounds.
This one’s especially for my friends looking to eliminate the brassy tones! R+Co Sunset Blvd Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner combo works well on underhydrated, coarse wavy hair that needs some boost in nourishment and shine. I do recommend using them both together and not just one as they are complementary to each other. It works really well on blonde, grey, or colored hair.
This particular shampoo and conditioner combo works to smoothen your hair and add radiance to your hair without a trip to the salon! It repairs and moisturizes deeply right from the root of your hair. It does with the help of unique ingredients to maintain the moisture in the hair. It also has Sunflower Sprout extract, which not only captures and holds water in the hair but also protects it from harmful UV rays. A unique ingredient present is the Vegan Pearl Extract, which really makes this Shampoo and Conditioner luxurious. The best part is that it can be used daily.
It helps to know that R+Co is a brand run by a Think Tank group of hairstylists that want to give their customers a unique hair care experience. Their products are some of the best, with multiple awards won in the past few years!
Some users complained about not liking the fragrance.
All that heat on the hair can damage it severely, and we definitely don’t want that. Thanks to Amika, we have a Heat Defense Serum that not only protects the hair from heat damage but also smells great!
Amika’s Heat Defense Serum doesn’t use any harmful stuff like sulfates, parabens, aluminum starch, etc. It’s a big part of Amika’s brand that they never use toxic chemicals, and neither do they harm animals. Amika means ‘friend’ in Esperanto, and they certainly are very friendly to all groups as this Heat Defense Serum works well on hair of all types, whether colored, treated, or natural. You can use it to protect yourself from thermal damage, heat damage from blow-drying your hair.
When you use this serum from Amika, you’ll notice shine and added moisture on your hair. I think this really makes it a must-try product.
Some users complained of receiving a leaking bottle.
Next up on the list is this Soft Styling Foam by Voir Haircare. Voir is a haircare brand from Canada. They manufacture all their products locally to maintain a close look-out on the quality, so you get the best product possible. Voir also makes use of natural ingredients but are not 100% natural, like most other brands in haircare.
Talking about the styling foam, it is one of the best. It feels just like ‘snow’ and leaves no weight on your hair. It adds volume and gives a medium hold that lasts for a reasonable amount of time. It uses marula oil to smoothen out your hair, bamboo extracts to add strength, and kukui oil to provide nourishment to your scalp. Overall, it is made from 87.5% natural ingredients, and it is vegan and gluten-free. If you’re worried that this will make your hair crunchy or sticky, then don’t worry. It will only make it softer. This styling foam will only add more definition to your natural texture, make your hair bouncy while making them feel soft and smooth to the touch.
If you’re looking to replace your mousse or get a new one, you should definitely think of getting Voir’s Secrets in the Snow. The smell is excellent, the ingredients are premium, and you are bound to have a good styling experience on your fine, wavy hair.
May feel a bit greasy on the second day.
Color Wow’s another great brand with a great team leading it. Color Wow works to make a difference with the consumer’s interest in mind to create products that are not only amazing but also economical and healthy to use. For this very reason, Color Wow boasts of having 70+ major beauty awards in their bag. “Empathy, science and artistry” is the basis of all that happens at Color Wow. And that really shows in their products.
Talking of Color Wow’s Style on Steroids Texture and Finishing Spray (long name, I know), it is a styling spray with heat protection. Believe me, when I see say this, it is a godsend for those who are struggling to get some volume in their fine hair! Use it when you start using curling or flat iron. Make sections and spray along the sections and according to the style you are aiming for. Then, after using the curling iron to set your hair the way you want, use it again. The result is instantly fuller and thicker hair that is bouncy. This won’t stick your hair together, so you don’t have to worry about that.
Another point worth noting is that it is paraben-free, vegan, and cruelty-free. It is ideal for all hair types; especially, color-treated hair. It won’t make your color dull or leave a residue, all that’s taken care of in the formulation of this product itself. Just remember to use it on dry hair, and you’ll have fantastic looking hair in no time.
Taking a break from the shampoos, conditioners, and sprays, let’s talk about a great styling tool that’ll help style the waves.
If you’ve been looking for getting some styling tools that are not only well-built but also have a lot of options and are priced really well then this Parwin Pro 7 in 1 Curling Wand Set is for you! It comes with interchangeable barrels of 13mm to 25mm, a 25mm cone in both bubble and oval size. This puts a lot of choice in your hands as now you can style your hair the way you want to! Want a curl? You can. Want a spiral wave? You can. The possibilities are exciting and all this without an expensive trip to the salon!
This Curling Want set by Parwin is very well-built and it doesn’t suffer from the usual longevity problem that comes with the other products on the market. It is lightweight and easy to use. You’ll see a lot of reviews attesting to this fact. There are also multiple heat settings, customization that you can do. It also has an LCD screen near the base which helps track the temperature, minimizing heat exposure. It heats up very fast so it will make your styling process very quick and easy. It also comes with a 60-minute auto-shut-off feature, which is great for your safety if you forget to turn it off.
Overall, I love this curling wand set as it has a lot of options, settings with which you can really accomplish the style you want quickly. The safety features and technology used to make it safe on your hair, and the price is the cherry on top! It comes in 2 variants, Professional and Standard, with almost no difference except the heating time and little price difference. You’ll be fine with whichever option you choose. You’ll get all the pieces in both the sets. Make sure you give this a look.
For the final product on our list, we go back to Verb for their Dry Shampoo for Light Hair. Our list wouldn’t be complete without a dry shampoo included in it. Because let’s face it, we’ve all been caught in situations where our hair’s not up to work but there’s not enough time to shampoo and condition it! This is where Verb’s Dry Shampoo comes to the rescue.
Verb’s Dry Shampoo will quickly refresh your hair, remove any oil without damaging it, and most importantly, without water. It works quickly and works well. It is straightforward to use too. Just shake well and spray from about 10 inches away from the roots then massage it on your scalp to really get out any oil and impurities. Then brush your hair, style it and you’re good to go!
Why I suggest using this dry shampoo explicitly is because it is made for fine hair. It works well on colored hair, curly hair, wavy hair, and even straight hair. Because it is made for light hair, it also adds some volume to your hair, which really gives a good boost in appearance. We’ve already talked about how reliable Verb is as a brand, so definitely check it out.
That was the list of 10 Best Products for Wavy Hair Type. I hope it has helped you with making the right choice for your hair. Remember that no hair product is perfect and will not solve all your problems at once. The most important thing to have excellent looking wavy hair is to have healthy hair. And that comes from a good diet, healthy habits, and the use of the right products. If your eating habits aren’t right, please look to fix them first before relying on beauty products to do some magic. A healthy diet will not only give you healthy hair but also radiant, spot-free skin, and abundant energy.
For my final advice on which hair products to buy, I’ll say this. Always look to use products that are more on the natural side than which are filled up with chemicals. Avoid sulfates and parabens like the plague. This way you’ll save yourself from much of the damage that comes from artificial hair styling and gives you peace of mind. Sure, some of these products may be pricier than the mass-produced drug store variants but the extra cost becomes worth it in the long run. So, spend on healthier products and spend wisely. You don’t need 50 different shampoos and conditioners, you just need to find one that works the best for you.
