This hair texture can best be described as “wiry” and defies gravity due to its makeup. Given the shape of the follicle on this hair type, natural sebum has difficulty getting down the full length of the strands. In turn, this type has a severe tendency towards dryness and breakage.

Top tips for Type 4’s:

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Weekly to bi-weekly deep conditioning is imperative to maintaining hair health with type 4’s.

This hair type benefits greatly from the LOC method with water being the best “liquid”.

Using combs or brushes on type 4 hair while the hair is dry is a recipe for disaster. Grooming and detangling should be done while hair is wet.

Protective styling is key with this hair type. Hair should be worn tucked away frequently in order to set a foundation for optimum moisture and growth.

Type 4 hair should be handled gently. Treat it like gold.
