We All Have Good Hair: A Breakdown of Curl Patterns

2. Wavy

Because it falls in between straight and curly, wavy hair is known as the most transitional of the hair types. Like straight hair, wavy hair reflects light and makes hair shiny. Wavy hair tends to be thicker and coarser than finer, straighter locks. This hair type is also more prone to frizz. So, unlike their straight-haired sisters, wavy hair types should keep the washing to every other day and wash with cold water. Cold water promotes shine, locks in moisture, and reduces frizz.

Skip the blow dryer; most hairstylists recommend using a diffuser attachment or just letting your hair air dry. They also recommend using light styling products as to not weigh the hair down and a wide tooth comb instead of a hairbrush.

2a – Mostly straight with a slight wave.

2b – Medium textured with a deeper wave.

2c – Large amount of waves; thick and coarse with a frizzier look.
