Wolfin’ Part 1

What is wolfing? It’s a question we see a lot from new wavers. Wolfing is the process in which a person grows their hair out by consistently brushing, moisturizing, and duragging or wave capping.

Why should you wolf? You should wolf your hair to get your waves deeper, more defined, and also more connected. Wolfing is how all those wavers who inspired you got their waves to the maximum level. Wolfing is the answer to a lot of issues you have with your hair; especially when trying to get your waves to come in. From the moment your hair starts to grow after a cut you are considered “wolfin”.

Things to remember while wolfing:

  • First off, wolfing is a process that is determined by your particular hair type. Wolf to fit you!
  • Keep your hair moist. This is one issue you have to handle early in the wolfing session. I suggest Wave Butter.
  • Hey, if your hair starts to stick up DON’T FRET! It is just new growth! Try adding a new product to your process; something that gives your hair more hold. There are different types of products you can use for extra hold, like a cream or pomade. Play around with the different types of holding products until you find the one that’s right for you.
  • As your hair grows you will have to brush more and more. Come on guys, you gotta step up the brushing to get maximum results! Just sayin.

A few points on getting your hair cut:

  • It’s time to get a cut when brushing and pomade or gel no longer lays down your your hair.
  • Make sure you let your barber know to start high and work their way down. This will ensure they do not f*@k up your progress!!!!!


As you’re wolfing the hair may start to stick out from under your durag on the sides and also on the back of the head. When this happens, you can give yourself a taper on the sides and the back so that you can sport a clean look, but still go on strong with your wolfing session.
