Although curly hair and wavy hair hairstyles are thought by many people to be the same, wavy hair is actually a type of curly hair. Curly types and wavy types of hair differ in curl tightness, thickness, and textures. The difference between wavy and curly is that usually to me if someone says curly hair I think really curly. With wavy its not bunched up or anything. And it's pretty straight at the top but at the end sort of like it flows.

• Curly hair is kinky having close curls like that in the spring.

• Wavy hair lies in between straight and curly hair and does not have curls but has zigzag pasterns that make them wavy.

• Curls start right next to the scalp, and such hair is thick and coarse whereas wavy hair is straighter and softer. The texture of wavy hair is thin.

• Curly black hairstyles are hard to tame yet many people go for curls in hair as they like them

• It is difficult to comb curly hair when they are dry

Curly extensions will stay really curly over the course of about 2 days-3 days, wavy hair just sorta floats in these little curves....also, curly hair is usually a lot thicker than wavy hair, which tends to be fine
