I bought Wonder Waves Waves Enhancing Spray about a week ago because I happened to see it on sale.  My hair waves a tiny bit when wet, and even that is over once I run a comb through it.I was afraid it would make my hair stiff so I used Redken All Soft conditioner before spraying my hair thoroughly with the product.  The liquid itself is thin and nonsticky, which I appreciate.  Like all Garnier products, it smelled like a dream.  I followed the directions and twisted my hair tightly before coiling around the base.  I didn't have any plastic bobby pins/clips on hand, so I secured the coils with tiny butterfly clips.I let it dry overnight and when I took it all down, I sprayed it with the Garnier All Day Flexible Hold hairspray, fingercombed it and flipped it around a little and my hair looked great.  The spray and coiling combination produced Brazillian-like (it's kind of hard to describe, but they were deep) waves, but I think it depends on how tightly you twist your hair -I went hardcore lol- and how tight your coils are.I loved it and got tons of complimentsI finally combed my hair toward the end of the day just to see what would happen and the waves softened a little but turned into really cute little ringlets.  I'm going to try it again tonight with softer coils - I'll be back if it doesn't end as well!!

Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves only slightly Wonder-ful

I have naturally curly hair that tends more towards frizzy, unless I work hard to tame it. I usually don't like to put many products in my hair, but needed something to help my hair either straighten out or curl up during the dry winter! This product was very reasonable in price, so I decided to try it.

The directions say to take sections and twist and secure with a pin. I have two kids who are always hanging on me so this was not a realistic option for me, but a did twist a few and scrunch the rest. I even broke out the blow dryer and dried my hair! I have to say that my hair was smoother and curly/wavy, but it didn't hold for very long. In subsequent uses, I have made larer twisty sections, which works better, as well as adding hairspray when dry.

Overall, I think this product was just okay. I feel like I could have gotten the same results if I just spent the time scruching, blow-drying, and spraying. But, wow! it smells fantastic!

Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray

By 

from USA

Comments about Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray:

I have naturally wavy hair that at times is very hard to manage. It gets very frizzy and just looks unruly and out of control. I love using Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray on my hair when I want a natural wavy look where I still have control to style it the way I want to. Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray is not a strong hold, it's a light flexible spray that gives your waves definition but still allows a lot of movement in your hair. I like using Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray right after I wash my hair and then letting my hair air dry. You can also blow dry after spraying your hair and crunching it while you dry to give your waves more definition. Your hair remains soft and easy to comb and style as needed after using Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray. It also smells so good, lots of citrus with a touch of flowers.

Great for summer

By 

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray:

This is great for days that I don't want to use heat on my hair or am in a rush. I get my long hair damp with water, spray this on and scrunch and I'm good to go. The waves it gives me are very light and towards the ends of my hair. It gives me beachy mermaid-like hair. If I want a lot of waves, I braid it then spray this in. When I take out the braids, the waves hold in place all day. I use it in my daughter's hair when we are in a rush and it makes her feel like a "princess." It has not stripped any of my hair dye color. A con to this is that it makes my hair look a little dull. It mattifies my hair and makes it look a tad lifeless, color and shine wise. It is a little drying, but it's fine if I dilute it or mix it with a little oil. It smells good and the scent lasts all day. I find myself putting my hair up to my nose and smelling my hair a lot when I use this. It sprays in a nice mist and covers a good amount of hair. It's great for summer when you get out of the pool.

From Stick Straight Hair to Beautiful Waves!

By 

from USA

Comments about Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray:

I have always had stick straight hair. It doesn't hold curl well and I have to spend HOURS with a curling iron to give it volume and curl. I recently decided to try some no heat curling techniques to see if they would work. I searched the aisles at my local store for products to help in my journey. I found this wave enhancing spray and already used Garnier Fructis Shampoo. I figured I would give this a try as well. Man, I am glad I did! I spray this on my almost dry hair at night after I take a shower. Then, I roll my hair up in a sock bun or headband curls. I sleep on it and wake up the next morning. I take it down and my hair FINALLY has the curls and waves I have always wanted. I give my hair another round of sprays from this and my waves stay ALL DAY. I love this spray! It works wonders on straight hair. I am not disappointed and you won't be either! I highly recommend this product for wavy hair or straight hair you want waves in!

Smells great, works great

By 

from SalemNY

Comments about Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray:

I have thick wavy-curly frizzy hair that I have to use some kind of product on or it goes crazy. I found this in the store while I was browsing and figured to give it a try since it was reasonably priced and if it didn't work I wasn't out of a lot of money. I let my hair air dry and when it was about 80% dry, I spritzed this through it. It did help my hair with its frizz issue but it also made parts of my hair hard and crunchy which I didnt like. It almost acted like a watery gel. My curls and waves weren't really any more defined than before but they were kind of just stuck in place and not bouncy or soft like how I would like them to be. The spray did smell really good though, fruity but not too strong, and it made my hair smell wonderful. I will most likely not purchase this again. It doesn't seem like a good product for dry hair but maybe more suitable for smoother, not so coarse hair.

Great product to hold and define wavy hair

By 

from Bethlehem, PA

Comments about Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray:

The thing I like about this product is that it does a good job of holding style in my often frizzy, limp wavy hair. It last all day too. What I don't like is that it's sometimes difficult to apply evenly and any that falls to the floor creates a sticky mess. That may be user error more than anything though.

Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves smells AWESOME!!!!

By 

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray:

Hello..

I have very thick, frizzy, wavy hair that is kind of hard to tame. So I constantly look for things that might be able to help. I bought this "Wonder Waves" by Garnier Fructis since I came across it while shopping for shampoo etc. I decided to give it a go since I did see the commercial for it.. and even though commercials would obviously make the product look good so you can buy, I thought it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. When I did finally try it, first of all it smells AWESOME!! Secondly.. it kinda works. It kept my hair from poofing up to a large fro.. but it made some parts of my hair hard. So it's pretty much like a spray gel (that smells AMAZING). haha. It doesn't exactly make you look like a model like the girls in the commerical (obvi).. but it smells great and helps a but with the hair taming. Also I think to make your waves look good you need to sort of fix your hair first before you spray it.. since it's pretty much spray gel. The best is probably to comb through your hair after a shower to get rid of the knots.. but leave it wet a bit.. but not TOO wet. When it's about half way dry, you should spray your hair. Then your hair would kind of stay that way.. or maybe a third dry.. since your movements would loosen the "gel" strength. 

Anyways.. my favorite this about this product is the smell. haha. :]

Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Adds Volume to my Curls

By 

from Spirit Lake, IA

Comments about Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray:

I have fine wavy hair that is very unrurly without a lot of help.  I discovered the Wonder Waves spray while searching for a spray to enhance the wave without weighing my fine hair down.  This does the trick.  I've been using Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves for about a year and a half (which is when it was first available in area stores). 

Instead of following the directions, I spray this on dry hair. Next, I brush my hair out and then use a curling iron on my hair. The only time I've had any issues with it is if I spray it on too heavy and then use the curling iron on my hair while it's still very damp with the spray.  Since my hair is wavy not curly I'm not looking for ringlets on my head.  This enhances the layers that I have, allowing me to curl and control the waves with my curling iron.

I appreciate the affordable cost of the Garnier Fructis products as I use this in conjunction with several of their other products.  With my budget I can't justify purchasing hair products that are expensive.  This does the job and keeps my hair soft and wavy all day long.

Get the hair you've always wanted, with a little help!

By 

from Waynesburg, OH

Comments about Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray:

I have naturally wavy hair, but the longer it gets the straighter it turns. Whenever I want to change it up a bit and change paces, I always turn to Garnier for the best shampoos, conditioners, and styling aids available to a budget concious indiviual! I love this product, and the little spray basically puts waves into your hair even if you dont originally have them! "Wonder Waves" wave enhancing spray is a magic product that I apply both before and after I dry my hair, for the best and most waviest results. If you blow-dry your hair (which I wouldnt recomend to get wavy results) than I would recomend putting it on when your hair is still very damp. This way, the product has the time and chance to soak in and work. I love that it is a "spritzer"-type product, and not a continual spray (like hairspray). You can easily control the amount, and the level of spray used. You have to use a lot, though, and double coat with hairspray to KEEP the waves in. It is a good product though, only buy on sale.

It really does what it promises!

By 

from Torrance, CA

Comments about Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray:

I just bought Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Wave Enhancing Spray today and first used and I already can say that I like it! I have a wave and thick, strong hair and whenever I wash it, if I let it dry naturally, it gets very frizzy and wild! In order to have a more civilized look, I've been trying as many products I can get, so I can say I have a very good background in this issue. Today I tried not to wash my hair and apply the Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Spray on it just as it was. I really have to say I like the results. At the beginning I thought it would get sticky, but then I let it go. I applied and let it dry. Then I did something that is considering forbidden for people with hair like mine: I combed it. And yes, it was dry! What happend was the waves got incredibly shine and stayed beautiful! I will definitely try it again and again, cause I still can't believe what I just saw! I will also try to apply after washing, with my hair still wet.
