How to get 360 waves without pomade

Updated November 21, 2016

The 360 wave is a popular style among men with tightly coiled hair. It is called the 360 wave because waves are created around the head. There are many hair products such as pomades, which are made to produce waves on your head, but you don't necessarily need pomades to get your 360 waves.

Wash you hair with water, shampoo and hair conditioner.

Use your towel to dry your hair.

Apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner to your hands. Rub your hands together and apply the conditioner evenly throughout your hair.

Brush your hair from the middle of your head down to your hairline.

Take your do-rag and put it on your head and tie it. Leave the do-rag on your head for 12 hours, then take it off.

Repeat steps one to eight frequently throughout the week, to get better results.
