How To Get Waves in One Day!

In order to get waves in one day you’re going to need a few items and a good understanding of hair. This blog post will tell you about the items necessary to achieve the goal as well as the info needed to style your particular type of hair.

Not everyone has the same hair type so it is important to know about your hair type. There are a few hair type that you need to become familiar with. type 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Depending on your hair type you may be able to get waves in one day because your hair is easier to move. That is an extreme benefit however, it may be a negative thing because you have to worry about loosing your wave pattern easy as well.

Type 1 and 2

Take a look at the hair chart above. Identify which one most similar to the hair on your head (some people have more than one type on their head). If you have type 1 your hair will not wave up at all no matter what. If you have type 2, we classify you as a straight hair waver and your hair will not wave up until it reaches curl length.

If you cut it too low, it may loose its curl. When your hair is not at curl length it will loose any wave effect it may have had before and will will not show any wave appearance at that length. Keep in mind you may have one to five big waves if your hair is type 2.

Type 3

If your hair is type 3 we classify you as a medium hair waver. Your hair is easy to train and you can likely see wave progress in a few days if you have the right items. I suggest you get yourself a Medium 3WP Brush Fork Breaker to begin your journey. These are the newest brushes made specifically for waves. The brush has linear bristle alignment to help you achieve an even wave pattern all around.

Type 4


This hair type is not likely to get wave progress in one day. The only way you are likely to see wave progress in one day is if you do the 360 Wave Process Bounce back method, or try the wash and style. Those two methods are the two most powerful methods when it comes to achieving and maintaining the 360 wave hairstyle. You can find those two videos by subscribing to the 360 Wave Process YouTube channel.

The Perfect Brush To Get Waves!

Step one: The wave technique!

The first step to get waves in one day would be to wet your hair with warm water. This will soften up your hair and make it more manageable, especially if you have type 4 hair. This is why it is important to know your hair type.

Once your hair is wet you need two grab a medium 3WP Brush and begin to receptively brush hair all around non-stop for a half hour until your hair is lad fully. It may be difficult to get your hair to lay down if it has never been consistently brushed before. In this case you may not see any wave progress after this method. Don’t be alarmed! You may still achieve waves, just not within one days time.

Next! You want to make sure you have the right du-rag to help your hair learn to lay down faster. A lot of guys wonder if they need the du-rag to get waves. The answer is that you only need a brush to get waves, but the du-rag will help you along the journey much better than if you only had a brush. You will go through more trouble if you don’t have a du-rag so do not skip out on getting a du-rag.

Step two: Lay it down right!

I suggest getting a 3WP Du-rag because it was woven from a silky fabric that is best for laying the hair down. After only a few minutes of wearing a 3WP Durag your hair will be noticeable more laid down than before putting the 3WP head wrap on. I suggest wearing it for thirty minutes at a time for the best results.

Step 3: Deep the results or be patient!

After doing step one and two and you take off your du-rag you should see some wave progress on the top. If you don’t see any progress, you must be patient and keep doing the process.

Don’t be sad no one gets full 360 waves in one day. Now some guys may have a few waves in this first day from the above method, but I can bet you a shiny penny they don’t have full 360’s. Also most people who get waves in one day still need a lot of work to bring those waves together. Subscribe to 360 wave process on youtube to stay motivated.
