I think that wavy still falls in the curly category. There aren't any distinct lines of curly and wavy. I mean, some days I get awesome curls, some days, pretty, loose waves.
I think some people tend to exaggerate ("my hair is sooo curly"), but if they think their hair is too curly, hey, it's their right.
Now curling-iron curls in magazine articles pretending to be natural - I want to smack them. There are plenty of perfect, naturally-occuring curls out there - get one of them!
