I have had the same problem but I have more years into the wave game so I didn’t really care at first, But after 2 days on not brushinn’n and me not wearing my tsu-rag. If you’re adamant about being neat, you can line your hair every other week, but nothing more. Even if you have greasy or sweaty hair, you’re better off washing every other day but never daily. For better results, it is always good to start on a clean slate. Get over the unsanitary feeling that comes with knowing you’re only doing your hair good. It is good to have alternatives, especially if they will save you on costs and time. You will have to visit your barber to get your hair trimmed at a low level. It’s funny because you’d only get to show off the waves you work so hard to maintain on special occasions.
