And it is not actually called a SSJ2 until later in the the series in the majin buu saga, but is referred to a an ascended saiyan at first... read the fucking manga or even watch the anime...
The difference between SSJ1 and SSJ2 is not just simply the hair standing up straighter. You have other visible signs, like those in SSJ1, you get a muscle mass increase (although barely) but you're a bit more toned in muscle. Their aura is also more jagged and more fierce because of the extra immense energy being produced and in more frequency creating the visible electricity you see.
The Raikage's lightning armor is the same from the beginning. Creating a cloak of electricity which he uses to stimulate his nervous system to increase his reaction time and physical speed. His output of his electricity is reflected on his how fast he reacts and moves. Bee noted that when he was going all out, meaning his max out (speed/reaction), that was when his hair was sticking up. He didn't transform or showed any difference to his physical appearance (besides his hair sticking up, due to using a ton of electricity which does make your hair stand). He merely increased the output of his ninjutsu. It's not a level variant nor has it been noted in any manga of Raikage stating various levels to his ninjutsu.
Unless you can prove with manga panels, data book, or a comment from Kishimoto himself, that Raikage has different levels of his Raiton Armor then your argument is null.
