Wave pomade is used in hair to help keep short waves defined and in place. The pomade is like a wax and must be warmed between the hands to a liquid consistency before applying to the scalp. This non-greasy hair product is applied to the entire scalp to keep it moisturized as well. The product comes in small tubs that are just a few ounces and are sold at most retail stores and drug stores.

Brush your hair after you have applied the wave pomade.

Step 1

Take a small amount of pomade and rub it between your hands to help it become more of a liquid consistency. The amount will depend on what brand of pomade you are using.

Step 2

Work the pomade into your hair evenly making sure to coat all of your hair and scalp.

Step 3

Brush your hair to work the pomade in. If you want 360-degree waves, start the brush at the top of your head and brush in a downward motion around your entire head. If you want more defined waves, brush your hair while in the shower.

Step 4

Put on a do-rag before going to bed. Let the product set on your hair overnight.
