Wavy hair is still considered curly! And waves can fall into several categories, from a slight bend to a loose spirally look that borders on curls (and sometimes looks like you spent hours with an iron!). Waves in the type 2 category are often the most coveted look, especially with celebrities (think beach waves). For your wavy, swavy, or whirly waves, our Controlled Chaos products will make your hair happy.

Wavy Hair and the 2C Curly Type:
Wavy hair falls somewhere between straight and curly hair, offering the best of both worlds. It features defined waves that have a natural volume and texture. The 2C curly hair type, specifically, is characterized by loose S-shaped waves that start at the roots and continue down the hair shaft.

Wavy Hair Texture
Wavy hair textures can vary from loose waves to more defined and structured S-shaped curls. The range of textures typically falls within the 2A to 2C categories. 2A hair has gentle, loose waves that are closer to straight hair, while 2B hair features slightly more pronounced waves that form an "S" shape. 2C hair has more defined waves with a bit of curl, often starting at the roots. These varying textures offer a versatile canvas for styling and can be enhanced with the right products and techniques.
The Science Behind Wavy Hair Formation
Wavy hair is created by hair follicles that have an oval or asymmetrical shape, causing the hair to grow in gentle waves. The angle at which the hair emerges from the scalp also contributes to the formation of waves. Factors such as hair thickness, moisture, and styling techniques can further enhance the appearance of waves in wavy hair.
Wavy Hair Texture Classifications
Wavy hair texture is classified into different categories based on the curl pattern and level of wave definition. The three primary categories are 2A, 2B, and 2C.
1. 2A hair is characterized by loose, gentle waves that are closer to straight hair. The waves are typically fine and often lack volume.
2. 2B hair features more defined waves that form an "S" shape. It has moderate volume and can be prone to frizz.
3. 2C hair has the most distinct wave pattern, with waves starting at the roots and becoming more pronounced. It has a thicker texture and can range from loose to tight curls.
To identify your wavy hair type, observe the pattern and level of wave definition. Pay attention to how your hair behaves when it dries naturally. Understanding your specific wavy hair category can help you choose appropriate styling techniques and products to enhance and care for your waves.
