I am in the 2s and don't have what anyone would describe as beach waves. I literally did not know I have 2c ringlets at the front until my late thirties, neither did my own mother, nor one single hair stylist. By the time I found the CG method I'd ponytailed my 'bad hair' 24/7 for the best part of a decade. The last layered cut I had to 'work with' my waves looked like Farrah Fawcett back in the seventies literally within five minutes of leaving the salon, every other time they have tried to flat iron it. I never received complements on my hair before CG despite you claiming society idealises it.
Artificial waves are currently valued natural waves are not, largely through ignorance. The vast majority of people with natural waves start out disliking them or not even knowing they exist - often describing their hair in the most unflattering terms as 'straight' yet kinky, wonky, messy, frizzy, fluffy, poofy, unmanageable, ugly or horrible. Many of us spent years or even decades brushing, flat ironing, BKT-ing, ponytail/ bunning or curly perming our hair into submission.
Clearly there is not the political and historical undercurrents with caucasian wavy hair as there is with African kinky-coily hair in the west, I hope no wavy would want to subtract from the natural hair movement just add to it. I know my hair type is in the minority in the wavy-curly community, I'd just like some content but recognise that it's up to us to push for and provide that.
Just as many African American ladies have put themselves out there to provide information for other 3s and 4s, start up small businesses supplying rich products with high quality ingredients. We can admire, learn from and be inspired by our curlier sisters, I support them by recommending their blogs, videos, articles and products. But I also recognise that techniques and products that help kinky-coilys to weigh down and stretch out their curls are the very opposite of what many wavies need.
There is a difference between substantially less
wavy content - which is logical since there seem to be fewer active 2s than 3s and 4s - and absolutely no new content in a couple of years. I would be totally happy if a new NC wavy blogger or YouTube vlogger had hair that wasn't like mine, because I have porous hair and some 2c sections I can take more away from the curlier girls than a 2a/b with fine thin hair.
