Wavy Curls (type 2a & 2b hair)

Wavy Curls Need Volume Without Weight

Long, lithe, and lovely, the w curl bends in gentle s-shaped curves.

Think: beaches, Sunday mornings, finger twirls. Easy, playful, and fluid, the wavy curl is best kept happy with airy sprays and volume-boosting foams. The wavy curl needs light ingredients and nourishing hydrators that create fullness and lift—too much weight and these waves fall flat.

Our amplifying range of specially formulated products allows your wavy curls to be effortlessly exquisite—with movement, texture, and bounce.

“With an array of textures—from subtle waves to soft, elongated s-pattern curls—the wavy curl type needs light hydration, curl encouragement, and slight definition. Ouidad's Curl Shaper range does just that, while helping to achieve a lived in, carefree look.”

— CHADWICK PENDLEY, OUIDAD MASTER ARTISTIC EDUCATOR

Volume + Hydration = Lift

The wavy curl strand ripples with lazy waves. Never predictable, its shape varies from curl to curl, and is often flatter at the crown. Our ingredients nourish deeply to boost curls’ natural curves.

Never weighed down, curls are full and voluminous, with boundless body and inner strength.

Body-building, moisture-boosting: Our weightless formulas are made with advanced volumizing ingredients to amplify healthy waves from the inside out.
