I honestly thought that it was over. Maybe it just wasn’t meant for me to be a “waver”.
But around a month in and things are looking wavey 🌊.
At first the top part of my hair was determined to stay in the pattern of my hehive 360 waves. But nearing the beginning of month 2 the top part and my top crown seems to be cooperating. Also found a comfortable angle to meet my waves halfway in that area. Basically brushing horizontal straight across with a clockwise hook angle at top left. The exact opposite of the angle for my back and bottom crown. Hooking close to the crown and crown left while horizontal straight angles across on the back.
Of course my problems areas are my top right and left and my crown right. Most likely due to my novice brushing skills trying to hook my crown right to the back of my crown. Suprisingly, my crown left and top left basic pattern is forming smoothly even tho that’s a thinner area. Once I found my brushing angles with both hands the gains were consistent. Horizontal brushing seemed to work the best.
Working on finding a good brand to affiliate with for brushes and caps. So far monsoon caps have your waves wet. 💯 Torino Pro brushes are def a go to if your still building angles or retraining your pattern.
I’ve also dabbled in a few new methods wash and style seems to put the want of my waves to curl up to good use.
This is a brand new journey y’all, so bare with me.
I’ve always enjoyed having pets. Even if they weren’t really pets. I used to get in so much trouble for sneaking and feeding the stray cats. Causing them to hang out around the house.
Not to mention the stray somehow suprisingly never rabid dogs. I even found much enjoyment and interest in wildlife. Like feeding the birds in squirrels in my back yard. Helping my grandmother in the day Lilly flower beds and rose bushes
Biology was always my favorite subject since elementary. And just being outside was a pleasure….
That was until I developed an unhealthy distrust for all human species.
Seeing another creature wether sential or not seems to promote calms and relaxation for me personally. And also usually being stoned it’s fun to watch pets just… live, you know.
Gives me hope 💗

Well if you couldn’t pull off 360 how are you gone manage 720??
Excellent question. I have no idea.
But I’m trying it anyways.
Most likely my YouTube is way behind compared to the information in my blogs. Nevertheless, here’s the sit. About a month ago I cut my hair down to bare clippers no guard. Maybe a .5 in my crown. Started with a somewhat new canvass.
Which was for the best because I’m approaching this wave journey at whole new angles. About 8 to be specific. I have said goodbye and good riddance to the 360 beehive and hello please don’t hurt me to 720 swirl.
For those that aren’t all familiar with natural wave patterns maybe Google it cause I’m not the best to explain things. However key points are…
360 waves beehive
- Brushing out from crown to egde.
- What appears to be a bald spot in your crown.
- Blind brush with ease.
- 8 angles
720 waves spiral/swirl
- Brushing in a clockwise motion.
- “Ponytail at crown.
- Difficult to blind brush crown.
- 8 angles out, 4 angles in, 2 angles crown.
That probably didn’t make a whole lot of sense either. Well I tried.
Anyways, yup if at first you don’t succeed try something harder I guess. The most difficult change to cope with is brushing at different angles and of course the hook method trying to learn how to get this dang swirl.
So far I’m happy with the change in events and the new products that I’ve been using. Like new brushes and new durag/caps. Be on the look out for product placement in a future YouTube episode.
Thanks for sticking with me.
I still love my 360 & beehive wavers.
“If you don’t have something nice to say; don’t say anything at all… If it doesn’t concern you, it isn’t any of your concern… What ever happened to that?..”
I’m starting to find as I get older and mature my patience for people not minding their own business, and not shutting the fuck up is fleeting. Like that shit really grinds my gears.
Sometimes even though an issue doesn’t directly involve you but you still have a valid part as an ally. For instance: Men considering themselves feminist. Directly indirectly involved.
By all means stand up for what’s right. I’m referring to people speaking up on with negative opinions on things are aren’t directly affecting them. Key word here being negative.
So many times on social media I come across people spewing hatred and negativity on situations that don’t involve them directly or indirectly.
Don’t mind me, I’m just venting….
