Caring For 2b Wavy Hair

2b Wavy Hair Description

2b wavy hair is medium textured hair that falls between curly (2a) and stick-straight (2c) hair types. It has a loose coil definition and can be resistant to styling techniques.

Celebrate Your Natural Waves

Embrace and enhance the natural beauty of your wavy hair. Add highlights and face-framing baby braids for a beautiful look. Use sulfate-free shampoo and clarifying rinse to reduce product buildup.

Proper Care for Natural Waves

Proper care starts with understanding your hair type, texture, porosity, and density. Choose products that moisturize without causing buildup or dryness. Wash 2-3 times weekly with sulfate-free shampoo and follow with a moisturizing conditioner. Use a clarifying shampoo once a month to remove buildup. Air dry or diffuse your hair to reduce frizz and increase volume. Try an elegant half-up ponytail for a stylish look.

Managing Frizz

Type 2b hair is less prone to frizz compared to type 2c hair. However, it may still have some frizz. Embrace the beachy waves of type 2b hair and maintain its fullness and volume with appropriate haircare routines. Use co-washing or the Curly Girl Method to prevent dryness and knots.

Preventing Dryness

Avoid dry and brittle hair by avoiding overusing styling products and excessive washing. Use a moisturizing shampoo regularly. Co-washing (washing with conditioner) can help replenish moisture without overdoing it.

Minimizing Frizziness

Type 2b waves fall between loose waves and S-shaped curls. Due to its proximity to curlier hair types, it may be more prone to frizz. Try Function of Beauty’s customized leave-in formula to minimize frizz and prevent damage.

Managing an Oily Scalp

2b wavy hair has a loose S-shaped wave pattern and medium strand texture. It tends to tousle easily but may also become frizzy. Unlike other hair types, 2b strands do not accumulate as much oil and can go longer between washes without looking oily. Proper moisturization is essential to prevent frizz. Consider using the Briogeo Curl Charisma Defining Creme for nourished and bouncy locks.

Preventing Damage

Wavy hair is prone to damage, which can ruin its wave pattern and cause frizz, tangles, or breakage. Limit chemical treatments and protect your hair with heat protectant when styling. Air drying is an excellent alternative to heat styling. Clarify your hair once a month to remove product buildup. Strengthen and repair damaged strands by increasing protein intake. Take a hair type quiz to customize your care routine.
