(2a 2b 2c):
You may want to leave your hair free of product and maybe you have no idea what "refresh" means or you are probably one of those who prefers not to fight on day two and you brush your tail. Or like me, you used the iron and the blower to appease your natural waves.
Wavy hair tends to be more prone to frizz because of the belief that it does not need products after washing. Type 2B and 2C hair tend to be more likely to have more waviness than type 2A.
Wavy hair falls between straight or almost curly wavy hair. It tends to have more shine than curly hair, but less than straight or straight hair, therefore it tends to become greasy as the days go by.
We have all gone through a moment of frustration at not understanding what our hair needs is.

It is the ability of our hair to absorb and maintain hydration. In other words, it is the ability of our afro for hydration (water) to enter or exit. ⠀
- Low porosity:
The arrangement of the cuticles is very compact, which makes it difficult for hydration to enter but once inside it remains.
- Average porosity:
The arrangement of the cuticles is more flexible, allowing the entry of hydration with ease and its permanence within the hair fiber. It is the porosity of the ideal hair. ⠀
- High Porosity:
The cuticles are poorly intertwined; it is as if there were holes in the hair fiber that, while allowing hydration to enter, also allow its exit; that is, as it enters, it leaves. ⠀
It is the condition of the hair that you mostly have to deal with every day:
- Oily Hair: It is the result of the fat glands (sebaceous) in the scalp producing too much oil.
- Normal Balanced Hair:
It is the hair that, as its name implies, has a balanced state, neither very oily nor very dry.
- Dry hair:
It is hair that does not have enough moisture and oil to maintain its normal texture and shine.
It refers to the amount of total hair that we have on our scalp.
- Low density
If you have low density, you will see a large gap by separating your hair in half. Lighter water-based creams suit this type of hair best.
- Medium Density
If you have medium density, you will be able to partially see your scalp by separating your hair in half.
- High Density:
If you have high density, you will see very little of your scalp by separating your hair in half. This type of hair requires heavier creams to handle frizz.
Hair thickness refers to the thickness of the individual strands of your hair rather than how much hair you have on your head.
- Thick Strand
Thick hair tends to be the widest in girth appearance, this type of thickness tends to be much stronger. That makes it easy to maintain length because hair is more resistant to damage. This type of strand is ideal for creating amazing protective hairstyles.
- Middle Strand
Medium hair tends to be in-between, is strong; but at the same time it is more elastic, Medium hair is more or less resistant to damage, This makes maintenance intermediate, not very sudden, but without the need to be very delicate when detangling with the comb. This type of hair can use protective hairstyles that do not need as much maintenance.
- Low Strand
Fine hair has a very small circumference, it is very delicate, very easy to mistreat. As a result, it is more difficult to keep long. Try to limit hair manipulation to avoid breakage. Avoid using combs and brushes and avoid hairstyles that require high maintenance.
Maintenance will depend on many factors such as oiliness, Because your wavy hair tends to frizz, lightweight stylists with protection against frizz and Moisture are ideal for maintaining and creating extraordinary waves without creating much weight on the hair, An example of these would be gels or mousses. There are products that are ideal for styling Frizzy hair without reducing the volume of the hair and provides better retention and gathering for your wavy hair.
Masks or deep treatment will help your hair maintain its shine and definition.
Personally, I like to use a sulfate-free shampoo and other ingredients, but you can use whatever you want at your discretion while helping you to clean your scalp well without drying out your hair a lot and in the end-use a silicone-free conditioner to gently detangle your hair. with a wide bristled comb.
Moisturizing your hair well will make a big difference in the definition of your curls!
