Black Natural Hair Type 4C

Black Natural Hair Type 4C

Black Natural Hair Type 4CBlack natural hair type 4C is the last on the list of the Andre Walker Hair Chart, however some hair charts extend far beyond this hair type.  But this is the tightest curl pattern on the chart, and therefore often has more of a drier appearance in comparison to the other hair types. This hair type is also widely known to be courser in texture, but with melanated women having such diverse backgrounds, this texture can vary widely to feeling either soft and spongy to feeling very course and wirey.

Regardless of the texture, due to its very tightly coiled strand, this hair requires extreme moisture, and low manipulation. This will ensure that this hair type does not become too dry and brittle, and retain i's length in the process. However I must emphasize that while most of us focus on moisture simply through our hair care products, one must be sure to balance this off with an adequate intake of water.   When it comes to our health, most complications that we are able to observe on the outside, are only an symptom of an imbalance that is occurring on the inside. Therefore dry hair is always a clear sign of dehydration. And no matter how many moisturizing products you use, the issue will not be corrected until you correct the imbalance with an adequate intake of water. It's best to drink half your weight in ounces or anywhere from half a gallon to a gallon a day if you can.

This hair type being on the far end of the spectrum of the hair chart, has difficulty maintaining shine in comparison to the other hair types. Or order for black natural hair type 4c to maintain shine its best to wash the hair in a downward direction so that you're not going against the direction of the cuticle. It's also best to try and use ph-balanced products, as this will also help to not raise the cuticle.  Additionally, finish with an Apple Cider Vinegar rinse (ACV) or you can simply finish with an icy cold water rinse to seal the cuticle which will allow it to lay flat which will help to maintain its shine.

When it comes to products, as always, all natural products free of sulfates, and parabens are recommended.  And heavy to medium textured moisturizers like she butter, and castor oil work beautifully on this hair type, and assist greatly with maintaining moisture and  manageability!
