Hair Curl Pattern: 2C
WHAT IS TYPE 2C WAVY HAIR?
This type of hair has more defined waves and loose curls all over the head. You might find that your hair can be quite frizzy and resistant to styling. This type of hair also loses curl definition very easily. So, try one of these care tips for type 2c hair for some great results.
CARING FOR 2C WAVY HAIR
First thing’s first: battling the frizz. Your hair is on the lower spectrum of the curl chart, where frizz can get pretty unruly. Just about anything, from weather to the way you wash your hair, can impact the frizziness and texture of your strands, so give them the TLC they deserve!
Hydration is Key
Styling your hair starts in the shower with a cleansing and hydrating shampoo & conditioner. We recommend using a sulfate-free shampoo for several reasons. Sulfates strip your hair of its natural oils, causing dull and frizzy hair (especially among those with waves and curls). Next, select a conditioner that will lock in moisture and keep your hair hydrated. Follow up with keratin to detangle while providing protection against heat styling after washing. Keratin, a protein found in hair, strengthens the shaft while smoothing the hairs cuticle, reducing frizz, adding shine and improving manageability - perfect for waves and curls. Our sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner contains a Keratin complex called Lipotein-Q™
Define Curls and Lock in Shine
Although wavy and curly hair tends to have more volume than straight hair, it can fall flat. Using a texturizer on damp or dry hair will help define your waves, providing you the texture and volume necessary to get that healthy bounce everyone desires. Use a diffuser after applying your product for more volume.
Leave it Alone
After styling, keep your hands and tools off your hair to prevent messing up the styling effects. Messing with your hair will inevitably lead to frizziness, flyaways, and tangles.
