How to Create Wavy Men's Hair

By Andrea Griffith

For women, it's not too difficult to get wavy and thick-looking hair (there are hot rollers, curling irons and mousse). For men, however, it's a little different. Men with longer hair can use the same methods as women. But for men with shorter hair, a different method is required. Saltwater not only helps nourish hair but it helps to add texture and wave to even the straightest of hair.

Step 1

Fill an empty spray bottle with warm water.

Step 2

Add two tbsp. of coarse sea salt to the water.

Step 3

Shake the bottle to thoroughly dissolve the salt.

Step 4

Add one tsp. of hair gel into the saltwater for added texture. Shake the bottle to mix the gel with the saltwater.

Step 5

Wet your hair with warm water.

Step 6

Towel dry your hair until it is damp. Spray the saltwater on your hair, thoroughly saturating it. Comb it through with your fingers.

Step 7

Run your fingers through your hair as your hair dries.
