2A – Wavy Swavy℠2a

Type 2A Wavy Swavy
Type 2a is gently, slightly “s” waved hair that sticks close to the head; it won’t bounce up, even when it is layered. 2a hair tends to be fine, thin and very easy to handle. It is also generally easily to straighten or curl. Type 2a hair tends to have quite a bit of sheen. Your best bet is to use lighter products such as mousses, lotions or gels that enhance the curls, but don’t weigh them down.
