let your hair grow out some and go long periods of time ( 4-7 weeks) without getting a cut. the only way to get waves is to brush a lot (1+ hours daily) with the grain. the grain is the way that your hair grows. brush by starting from the crown and make your way outwards towards the hairline. the sides should be brushed in a slant or downwards. brush your top towards the front and ur back downwards. "dax" is a good pomade for laying down coarse hair to make the waves more visible. just make sure you don't use too much pomade or your hair will look too greasy. also be sure wear to durag afterwards. put a durag on before you go to sleep to protect your pattern as well.
