Type 2: Wavy Hair

Type 2 wavy texture is not quite straight and not completely curly, with the spectrum of hair ranging from loose loops to coarse, thick S-shaped waves combined with curls. Type 2 texture is typically flatter at the root and lays close to the head, getting curlier from the ears down.
