I recently bought it and can't wait to use it but a bit scared if it will work in my 2b hair which isn't curly but wavy. Also is wavy hair considered curly orrr... Please help me out guys, thanks!

    Hi Paris, Welcome to nc.com. No reason why you can't try the SM Coconut Hibiscus smoothie - I think wavies (especially fine-haired wavies) usually just use less or dilute it. But don't feel bad if it doesn't work for you. Not all products work for everyone.

    As a wavy, I call my hair curly. But I find there are a lot of people who get pedantic about it, usually people with straight hair, and I just tell myself they are jealous. :p

    The SM Curl Enhancing Smoothie seems to be one of those products that works for a wide range of textures, so I would definitely try it. You may need to use less or apply it differently, but it has a lot of wavy fans:

    You can certainly use the CES in type 2 hair. :) I used to use it, but then my hair became sensitive to protein (there is some protein in the CES). 

    If you have fine hair, you need only a tiny amount, like maybe a quarter to a half of a pea. I would start with very little and work your way up.

    I consider wavy hair curly in a general sense, because people generally think in terms of straight OR curly hair. But "wavy" is probably more accurate. I don't worry too much about it. I use whatever term is more helpful for the discussion at hand.
