What to look for: wavy and loose
The most important question to answer is what does the 2a hair type look like? Well, the first part of the answer is pretty simple: if you have wavy hair, you have type 2 hair. Then we get deeper into texture; 2a wavy hair, specifically, is really loose waves. Your waves are wide S-curves that can be straightened in a flash. Your texture may be described as “tousled.” You have very little volume at your roots and you’ve probably found that some products weigh down your hair.
