    Smile Types of Hair

    Hi,

    - I'm still not sure what the difference between curly and wavy hair.

    - And what is thus type of hair called:

    - Are there any other names to describe the hair in terms of being straight or not?
    - Are there any derogatory words that I should avoid?

    Thanks. :)

    Re: Types of Hair

    Not a teacher

    I have heard "frizzy hair" and "afro-hair" for tightly curled hair. Of course "nigger-hair", as you may hear in racist quarters, is quite unacceptable. As for "curly hair" the curls are much looser and the adjective "wavy" comes from "wave" as in sea waves. That should make you visualize what I mean.

    I hope it helps,
    M.
