Default What exactly is "s'wavy" hair?

I've seen this term a few times and am not exactly sure if it just means wavy or something else? Anyone have any picture examples?

I know in the curl type section of the site 2A is listed as wavy swavy but to me her hair looks like 2B stretched or brushed out. I always think of 2A as big but loose waves.

It's one of the curl patterns that Lorraine Massey uses in her Curl Girl book.

Yeah I remember it being mentioned in the book but there were no examples... Is is like straight hair with a slight flip at the ends? Or wavier?

If you go to the link Corrina provided, click on Swavy (and any of the others) to see photos and descriptions of the different patterns.

To me 2a is a very weak wave, 2b is stronger and 2c has ringlets at the ends but often straight(er) at the roots. My waves are mostly roughly the same size just more stretched out and more easily lost. My 2as at the back do easily have that 'combed out' look, they were drying out too fast so like more water and don't clump well without protein.

TY! So 2A would be something like this:

Yes can be, my back section that I consider 2a is a smaller pattern repeat but still really stretched out and weak tho. I don't really see it as the size of the curl as much as the weakness/ strength/ how stretched out it is/ how easy to lose. But that is my impression, you might find others see it a different way.

Yup, I would consider this 2A. I think 1c is mostly straight but with a flip at the bottom.
