Your Voice: Type 4 Series!

This is for all ladies, whether natural, transitioning, texlaxed, or relaxed stretchers. Do you have super-tight kinks and coils?

Are you curious to learn how to care for them healthily? how to style them? how to comb them? how to "manage" them?

In the next couple weeks, I'll post about how to achieve the following on type 4 hair:

Super, sleek edges
(no boar bristle brush required)
Wedding/formal styles
(with little/no heat required)

Feel free to leave a comment below stating whatever else you're interested about learning.


  1. ohhh yes!! it will be very interesting..I will attend to a mariage soon and don't know how to style my hair...
    I am (very) impatient!!
    Thanks for you great blog!!

  2. Awesome!! Thank you and you're welcome!

  3. Whoo hoo! Im very interested on how to get sleek edges but ive been afraid of using the boar bristle because I have seen them cause thinning edges

  4. Yea, the boar bristles can be fine for some ladies but bad news for others (including myself). Stay tuned! :o)

  5. I don't brush my hair at all but Ive always heard and read that the boar bristle brushes are best.

    Loo as for the upcoming post, I can't wait to see it. Bring it, girl! lol.

  6. It's about to be brought! :o)

  7. Looking forward to it!

  8. Loo, that's what I'm talking 'bout! I'm a Type 4a. I got a tight reggi, but I'm always on the hunt for tips on how to take my reggi to the next level. I'm constantly looking for hair factoids.

    As a side note I would like to say that I LOVE how the natural hair movement is growing (pun intended). I really love the support that our sisters (like you!) are giving. It's a wonderful thing. Discovering your natural hair opens the door to so many wonderful self discoveries.

  9. how do you make natural hair elegant and sexy, instead of "fierce and wild" which are the two adjectives more associated with afro hair.

    i don't mind this, but i just want to see what your interpretation would be!

    Thanks :)

  10. @Lucky: Thanks. I'm completely agree about the natural movement. It's taking on fast.

    @Jacquie: Great question. I'll add this to my to-do list.

  11. Oh yes, I'm very interested! I'd love to hear about super-easy ways to deal with tangles/knots and quick style for special occasions! Thank you, thank you in advance!

  12. ^^Adding these to my to-do list as well. You're welcome!

  13. One more thing...I'd love to see some tips for fine/thin type 4 hair! I've been having a hard time with styling lately :( Thanks!

  14. Great move!!!
    Wondering how best to style short, neck length hair. I am using natural extension twists and alternating with wigs whilst I grow out, but I wish I could do something with my own hair from time to time. I want to love my hair at every stage of this journey and not hide it away until it's 'long enough'(whatever that means!)
