Wavy Hair - Type 2
Type 2 - Lax & Loose (Wavy)
- Type 2 hair is our lax and loose hair type, also known as wavy hair. This hair type is naturally wavy and forms an “S” shape
- Type 2 hair is not as oily as Type 1 because of the slight texture it has, but type 2 hair is not completely free from combating oil or dryness.
- Type 2 also tends to be thicker than Type 1 hair. Consider Type 2 as the happy medium between curls and straight hair.

Tips & Tricks for the Lax & Loose
With wavy hair, the biggest frustration is that it tends to frizz. To keep wavy hair at its best, you have to find the perfect balance between controlling frizz and not weighing down the natural curl your hair has.
Essentially, you have to add moisture and volume all while keeping the waves. The key is not being heavy handed when applying products to your hair.
Recommended Products: Shoot for shampoos and conditioners specifically designed to hydrate and moisturize your hair. You can try using a moisturizing hair mask once a week to help lock in that hydration and reduce your frizz.
Styling Tips: The key to keeping your hair frizz free is to touch it as minimally as possible. When your hair is damp, you can apply a little styling mousse or cream from root to tip to keep that frizz away.
