Wavy hair can be created through a number of styling methods. Hair gel is a styling product that transforms hair into waves without the damage that comes from using hot rollers or a curling iron. A method called hair scrunching is used with the hair gel to make waves. It’s best to use with hair that already has a natural wave or curl to it.
