Black Natural Hair Type 2A

Black Natural Hair Type 2A is hair that has a slight wavy curl pattern, and is medium to thin when it comes to density.  This hair type is relatively easy to manage in comparison to other hair types along the hair typing chart since it's not too far removed from straight hair.  This hair type can easily be worn straight with the use of a blow dryer or flat iron, and it can also be worn wavy in it's natural state. However due to it's slip factor it may not be able to hold certain styles like those along the nature of type 3 and 4 hair.

Given the nature of this curl pattern, it can be weighed down with heavy products. Therefore this hair type is best managed with frequent washing, or at least once a week, in order to prevent product build up. It's also best, as with any hair type to use natural products including shampoos free of harsh cleansing agents like sulfates which will strip the hair of its natural oils.  And while this hair type does not have a lot of difficulty with maintaining moisture since it's very close in nature to straight hair, it's still best to use products that provide moisture in order to maintain an adequate moisture balance. This also helps to eliminate frizzing which this hair type is often prone to.

When it comes to moisturizers and conditioners, it's important to find ones that offer adequate protein balance to help keep the shafts of this hair type healthy and strong! Most oils that are derived from the seeds of nuts will provide both moisture and protein so you can kill two birds with one stone by taking this route!  Further whichever you choose, lightweight to medium moisturizers and conditioners are best suited for black natural hair type 2a to again not weigh it down causing it to become flat and dull, as well as creating product build-up.
