Type 4 hair has been notoriously known to be dry, brittle and extremely difficult to manage. Well, all of that may be true but with the proper hair care products and regime, managing type 4C hair is just as easy – all it needs is a little bit extra time and TLC.
First, understanding 4C hair.
Natural hair as is, tends to be coarser and it is important to identify products that will penetrate your hair shaft well instead of completely weighing it down.
It’s all about hair porosity – how well your hair absorbs moisture and 4C hair has low porosity as compared to other hair types. The hair cuticles are extremely tightly coiled together and are very resistant to moisture. Have you ever felt the product just sitting on your hair? If your answer is – ‘yes’ then read on to know how to deep condition 4C natural hair.
Always pick and use the right products best suited to your hair type. Using a gentle shampoo that does not dry your hair out is the key first step. As a regime, reduce hair washes to once in 2 weeks, concentrating more on the scalp. African Pride Moisture Miracle Honey & Coconut Oil Shampoo is super hydrating and gentle – we’ve tried it and we love how it moisturizes the hair and tames the frizz.
You know the routine girl – skipping deep conditioning equals to an absolute hair nightmare! So co-washing with a deep conditioning treatment is advisable once a week.
Natural oils and heavy butters such as castor oil and shea butter act as natural sealants to the hair and locks all the moisture in and we’re in luck when a brand like African Pride power packs both these ingredients into its African Pride Black Castor Miracle Hair & Scalp Sealing Oil. Slather on girls and tell us how good this whole regimen above, was for you.
