Know Your Hair Type - 2A, 2B, 2C

Let's kick things off by getting to know your wavy hair a bit better. Type 2 wavy hair is usually defined by its large waves and gentle curls - that 'S' shape - which are often described as 'beach waves'. According to Andre Walker's Hair Typing System, wavy hair comes in three subtypes:

Type 2A

2A Hair Type:
Welcome to the realm of 2a hair—fine to medium texture with effortlessly loose and natural waves. Less frizz is the perk, but the open hair cuticle can play tricks, easily absorbing and losing moisture, making your locks prone to dryness or looking weighed down.

Type 2B

2B Hair Type:
Type 2b hair features curlier waves in a more defined “S” shape than type 2a hair. It generally lies flat at the crown before rippling from the midpoint to the hair ends. You can also expect more volume from this curl pattern, but may struggle with frizzy hair texture and flyaways.

Type 2C

2C Hair Type:
Type 2c hair is the waviest with clearly defined S-bends. While you’re less likely to encounter flatness — these volumizing curls usually start from the hair roots — the coarser texture and deeper waves equal significantly more frizz and flyaways.

Wavy Hair Care Essentials

Avoid Heavy Products - opt for lightweight products that won't flatten your waves. Starting with a light, moisturising base and building up to a stronger hold product can help your waves last longer.

Ever tried 'plopping'? This game-changing technique involves wrapping wet hair in a cotton T-shirt or microfiber towel, enhancing your natural wave pattern as it dries.

The Art of Layering

Longer layers work their magic by adding a touch of weight, stretching out waves for that effortlessly loose look. On the flip side, shorter layers inject volume and bounce, creating the illusion of tighter waves.

Over-brushing or excessive touching can lead to frizz and a loss of definition. Finger-combing and occasional use of a wide-tooth comb are generally the best ways to manage wavy hair.

Pro-tip: If heat styling is your thing, always play it safe with a protective cream or spray.

Nutritional Support for Wavy Hair

As we age, it's essential to recognize the key nutrients we need more of to maintain healthy hair. Let's give your hair the nutrients it craves. Collagen, iron, and vitamin D are your hair's best friends.

Nutritional Support

Collagen: Naturally diminishes as we age, leading to thinning hair and ageing skin. Incorporating collagen-rich foods and supplements into your diet can boost the strength and elasticity of your hair and skin. Marine Collagen is often considered the best choice as it's easily absorbed and utilized by the body.

Iron: An iron deficiency, often indicated by low ferritin levels can disrupt the normal hair growth cycle, causing more hair follicles to shed prematurely, a condition known as telogen effluvium. Therefore consuming iron-rich foods can help ensure you have an adequate supply.

Vitamin D: More than just for strong bones, it's crucial for happy hair follicles. A vitamin D deficiency can disrupted the health of your hair, potentially lead to hair thinning or even hair loss. During winter months, boost your daily supplementation and don't skimp on this vitamin.

Additional Tips for Gorgeous Wavy Locks

Scalp Massages

1. Scalp Massages:
Treat your hair to regular scalp massages for increased blood circulation. Be gentle; we're promoting growth, not damage.

The heightened blood flow, in turn, nourishes and supports the health of your hair, aiding in its growth and overall vitality.

Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner

2. Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner:
A volumizing shampoo and conditioner can help you take control of any flatness and nourish dry locks.

To add volume while styling, add mousse near your roots, flip hair upside down, and use a blow dryer to activate the mousse. For added definition, use a brush while blow drying and your tresses will be instantly voluminous.

3. Reduce Stress:
Consider adding stress-reduction techniques into your daily routine, such as meditation, long walks or yoga.

Prolonged stress can elevate cortisol levels, a hormone that, when imbalanced, may adversely affect hair follicles, potentially leading to hair loss.
