Natural 4C hair is the coiliest and kinkiest of all the hair types. And, honestly, sometimes it can seem like magic hair! 4C naturalistas know exactly what we mean because they know exactly what shrinkage does to their hair. You can tug the strands right down to the middle of your back, let go, and watch them coil back up to finally rest just an inch or so from your scalp.

Thankfully, the versatility of naturally textured hair means we can make full use of that shrinkage and those lovely coils and kinks to wear our hair in a wide variety of styles. We love embracing the curliness of our curls. But yes, sometimes we want to show off the true length of our hair, too, or slick back those kinky coils for a sleek style, like Zara does with her hair.

Hairbands and butterfly clips – They assist with holding and sectioning your hair. Applying products to small sections of your hair and then detangling those sections individually, makes it much more manageable and helps to prevent over-manipulation of your hair.

Hairbrushes – Have a two-sided bristle brush and a detangling brush on hand to help you with detangling and styling.
