We have a thread lamenting what's tough about being a 2, but this morning I've been thinking about the reasons it's awesome to be a 2;

I can wear my hair naturally in beachy waves

or I can diffuse and get bouncy curls

If I want to go straight it takes minimal styling and heat

or my hair will happily take a stronger curl if I use rags or rollers

What do you love about being a wavy?
2C, Medium thickness, Low posity
Recovering from a year of keratin and bleach with CG


Low Poo, Condition, Leave in, Curl cream, Supersoak, Gel, Diffuse on high heat, with minimal lift to encourage waves and reduce frizz, Dry on cool with nozzle down to smooth hair and finish drying,Shine Serum

Weekly gelatin protien treatments.
As a more medium wavy (and sometimes I feel guilty even calling myself one) frizz is much less of an enemy to me. Occasionally if I want to comb I can comb. It's definitely versatile. And occasionally it's astonishing. I'm sure enjoying it even when frustrated more than when I was keeping it short.
2a medium porous, You can see my wavy tutorials here: and my wavy blog is The Wavy Nation
I love how lightly wavy and volumey my hair is at the top, and as it falls, stronger waves whirls and curls are present. It gives a more styled look. When you see those girl who use a wand to curl their hair, they aren't trying to create curls, but wispy waves, which we have effortless. I love that if I brush it, it's not a giant poof ball. I think waves are a more maturing look where as curls can sometimes make you look younger. Don't get me wrong, sometimes I get jealous of girls with perfect spirals, but I wouldn't trade my waves for them. I love that it is my hair and I'm proud to show it off.

Sometimes I have curl envy, but I am trying to embrace that much of my hair is more wavy than curly. And as a wavy/curly I am trying to see past the sometimes frustrating issue of getting results you want, and embrace the fact that our hair can be different all the time. Hard to get tired of it that way I guess lol.

I got a haircut a few months ago that has added more volume and texture to my hair. So now my hair is kind resembles shakiras messy waves. I just feel more wild and eccentric with crazy waves. Waves are just fun!!!!
Me too, to all prev posters. I have occasional bouts of curl envy, but i snap out of it, give myself a scolding for not appreciating the versatility of waves, and BRUSH my hair. I enjoy my trip back to the '80's w my big fluffy hair. I look like Dee Snider.
2b/2c ( weather permitting - 3a), fine texture but lots of it, colored and highlights, BSL.

just something funny: today I went to my hair dresser since I needed a dyingjob, before colouring she brushed my hair (since it would be easier to colour) and I looked like a lion really funny
you could still see poofy waves, but the waves went to 2a-2b where they were heavy 2c(maybe with a bit 3a) before and poofy...
I called my wurls manes in front of the hairdresser and she started laughing just as I did
Mane applies to human hair as well as animals
I have never ever ever heard that in Belgium...
If I say manes here, people would associate it with horses or especially: lions...
I like to compare my hair with lionmanes when brushed out
(and according to some people my haircolour is squirle-like)...
So I'm a squirle-lion
