If you are a 2C, the Naturally Curly Texture Typing system may confuse you a little bit. 2C’s generally have a mixture of different wave and curl patterns on their head and the look can vary greatly among ladies. It’s impossible to pinpoint one exact model to show you, as there are many variations on a single curl pattern (hair can be fine, coarse, dense, or thin) so we’ve compiled 20 photos of lovely 2C (and mixed curl pattern) ladies to help you narrow down your type.
2C hair consists of S-shaped waves mixed with ringlets. These waves and curls begin at the roots, unlike their 2B wave sisters, which start around eye level. The biggest goal of wavies is to find products that fight frizz while giving the hair enough hold to keep the waves defined without making them crispy or weighing them down.
