The word 'waves' sparks a specific visual in the context of beauty; smooth, shiny, silky strands, styled with a perfect bend.
The ones that aren't sculpted by a hair dryer and round brush combo, however, can soon veer into frizzy territory if not properly cared for. When working with naturally wavy texture, success starts in the shower; namely with your shampoo.
Not as coarse as curly hair, but also not starved for volume in the same way as straight strands, wavy locks don't need to be tamed, lifted or altered in any significant way to fall as desired—all waves are after is something equipped to support them in the softening, smoothing and shine-boosting departments.
Select a shampoo that takes care of the finish and the feel, and let your natural texture do the rest. Here, BAZAAR's edit of the best shampoos for leaving wavy hair looking luxuriously smooth.
