A few weeks ago I saw a post shaming women who have 3a-3c curl patterns. I did agree with the statement that the natural hair movement seems to feature more women with that kind of texture. However, I will not sit here and downplay their blackness. I myself am a 4c curly and when I was starting my natural hair journey almost 6 years ago, I REALLY had to look for people with my hair type.
4c is so versatile there is so much we can do with our hair and our fros are BOMB DOT COM! you can’t tell me NOTHING when I am wearing my hair in a fro. I wanted to share some of my favorited type 4 hair naturals to follow on IG.
Hopefully you get some inspiration and you can see that there is so many styles that we can rock as well.
First up is ME. I have been rocking protective styles a lot this year and When I give my hair a break I usually wear wash n go or twistout. If you want to see how I achieve this definition on my 4c hair, check it out here.
Chary Jay is one of the FIRST people I watched on youtube. She was also from my home state MI (REPRESENT LOL) and when I got the chance to meet her in FL she was just as sweet in person as she is on film. She big chopped for the second time last year and her curls are ALWAYS poppin
Jenelle Is another Youtuber i followed early on in my natural hair journey. She rocks her 4 type curls in so many ways. She also doens’t leave the little ones out. Her daughter Elle is just too cute for words.
If you are like me when I was newly natural you were wondering how you to get the best look out of your wash & go. I am not going to leave you in the dark. You can check out my easy and BEST way to achieve the most define wash & go
I am late to the Wig game and I am mad at myself! I love doing protective styles but I have a problem of keeping them in for longer than three weeks. With a wig you can have the versatility of different hair styles and the ability to change it up within a week. I love that. I decided to try out fingercomber’s Havana Fro Unit. I had been searching for a while on YouTube and blogs and this picture right here is what made me decide to go with this unit.
Do you SEE that Diana Ross realness that this unit is giving? I was SOLD and I placed my order. It wasn’t until after my order that I had read some reviews about how it took over two months to receive the unit and I was worried. Well I placed my Order on April 1st and I received it on April 8th. That is AMAZING shipping if you ask me.
This unit is easy to clean and you have to detangle it. Since I am a natural I am used to having to detangle so this was not a con in my book. Just remember to always start at the ends and work your way up to detangle. The unit has two combs. One in back and one in the front. It is also adjustable.
There are so many versatile styles that you can do with this unit. You can do up do’s I especially love the fact that you can put havana twist in(I am looking forward to rocking that) as well as a big puff or just wear it out. I will be attending a wedding next week and I am thinking of the many ways I can rock this unit. I can’t wait. Below are a few hairstyles that I have rocked since receiving this.It is only a half wig so you will have to leave hair out and try to blend,that process was easy to do. All in all I would recommend this wig
Lets face it sometimes we have things to do and places to be. Wraps are a great choice when you have to deep condition on the go or your twist have not dried yet(actually wraps are great for ANY occasion) One of my favorite places to purchase wraps from are The Wrap Life. They have some amazing prints and colors and are like nothing I have seen on the market.
You know you love those colors!!! I have many ways that I like to wear my hair wraps. I have made a tutorial for 4 of my favorite ways. So let your imagination flow and Fall into Wraps this season.
