Hey everyone! So I'm super new to all this...in fact I may have posted this already, but I think I may have accidentally deleted it...So who knows lol. Anyway, I need some advice. I believe my hair type is 2a, but I'm not sure? I wasn't even convinced that I was naturally wavy til recently; I didn't even consider the thought until my best friend (who I believe is a 3b/c) told me she thought my hair was wavy. At the time I was like, "No, unfortunately I just have really weird straight hair that likes to twist and turn in all random directions lol!" But then I started letting my hair air dry (instead of round brushing it was a blow dryer) and it turned out like the picture below! I was shocked when I noticed my waves, and I really want to try to embrace them now lol. But I wanted some advice on where to start! Like I said, I think my hair is type 2a because of the wave pattern (really loose and undefined), but my hair is also really thick, has high porosity, and some days my waves are more noticeable than others. I'm also just now getting into the idea of using wavy hair products, mousse, gel, diffusing, etc. Any ideas on exactly what hair type I am and how best to bring out my waves? Thanks in advance!
