Can 2A hair be frizzy?
Type 2 hair is often frizzy, but it’s typically not overly oily or too dry. Naturally wavy hair curls in an S shape determined by the number of bonds formed between the keratin protein in the hair shaft. Understanding your hair type is the first step in figuring out the styles and products that are right for your hair.
Do I have 1C or 2A hair?

Does Curly Girl Method work on 2A hair?
Styling products can come in the form of cream, gel, custard, or mousse.

It works well on all curly hair types including fine wavy hair, and helps to revive your natural curl.
Is my hair type 2A or 2B?
Type 2a presents slight waves and they begin much lower than the root, almost from the half down. Type 2b goes up just a little bit, with the roots still straight. Hair type 2b also has more defined waves that go into an S shape type of wave, compared to the flowing beach waves we found in type 2a.
How often should you wash 2A hair?
Medium hair should be washed every 2 to 4 days. If you have medium wavy hair (2A or 2B), you should try to wash every 3 days since your hair won’t get oily as fast. For curly hair with a medium texture (type 3A or 3B), you can go up to 4 days between washes.
Do I have 2B or 2C hair?
Type 2B hair has waves that are clearly defined and tightly drawn – think of surfer curls. Type 2C hair has defined waves that start at the roots, and is thicker than the other subcategories. This hair type starts to form loose spiral curls and has that “S” shape.

What does 2A hair mean?
Those with hair type 2A have a fine, barely-there tousled texture that’s very easy to straighten. People with this texture have to be wary of using heavy styling products that can easily weigh their strands down, rendering them limp and lifeless. 2A waves, like Laura Dern’s, typically lack volume at the root.
