By Tiffani Douglas
Caring for curly hair is bittersweet! One day you’re twirling in the mirror, totally impressed with your recent growth and curl definition, the next you’re cursing the heavens because you just broke your last comb trying to style it! Ugh! What IS a girl to do?
Though maintaining type 4 hair can be rough it doesn’t have to be…all the time. Understanding your hair, knowing the best natural hair products for Type 4C hair and having some styling techniques in the bag can be the light at the end of a dark tunnel when you’ve had it with your 4C curls.
What Exactly is Type 4C Hair?
Most Black women have type 4 hair and know the extra love and dedication it requires to keep it moisturized and strong. While there are three types of 4 hair – 4A, 4B or 4C, today we’re talking about 4C curls.
While it may appear coarse or undefined, type 4C hair is the kinkiest, most tightly coiled curl pattern.
Thankfully, the Cashmere+Caviar Collection is a line specially formulated for 4C curls. Women with 4C hair struggle with breakage and shrinkage, however using natural products for 4C hair can make a huge difference.
Check out our styling video along with detailed steps below.
A Type 4C Hair Regimen that Slays!
Pre-Poo. Type 4C hair can take a lot of abuse when detangling, styling or shampooing, so before you cleanse your hair, apply Cashmere+Caviar Hair Serum to prepare weak sections of your hair for the vigorous scrubbing motion of cleansing.
Cleanse. Use sulfate-free shampoos to cleanse the hair and detoxify the scalp. Cleansing your hair and scalp regularly with sulfate-free Cashmere+Caviar Hair Bath will free hair of product build-up and debris. Plus, the activated charcoal cleans and purifies your scalp without drying it out.
Deep Condition. Type 4C hair needs moisture – ALWAYS. Cleansing can wash away your natural oils leaving your hair dry and vulnerable to breakage. To add lost moisture, apply Cashmere+Caviar Hair Masque right after a good shampoo to strengthen and restore full hydration to your curls.
Moisturize and Detangle. To add even more moisture and detangling power, apply Cashmere+Caviar Hair Silk. This is not your average leave-in conditioner. With multiple uses for kinky 4C hair, it definitely supports your wash-n-go styles or next day hair.
Style. For beautiful, textured styles, you can’t go wrong with this healthy curly hair duo. Cashmere+Caviar Hair Serum and Cashmere+Caviar Hair Gelle will get your kinks and coils together when you are ready to hit the streets. Reconstruct, strengthen and enhance hair growth with these all-natural styling products.
