How many times have you sat and drooled over a massive, full and scrumptiously thick 4C afro? Heaven knows that I have! While discussions on 4C hair in the natural community often focus on its problems, there are many advantages to having a 4C texture. Let’s discuss why 4C natural hair rocks!
4C shrinkage is totally insane! Who goes from a TWA to waist length natural hair in a matter of hours? 4C natural hair chicks, that’s who! And while, yes the tangling that comes with shrinkage can be a pain in the butt, it also allows for a lot of styling versatility. You can still your hair shrunken, semi-shrunken, stretched or straight.
Because it is so highly textured, un-stretched 4C hair tends towards incredible volume.
3. Ready to Loc and Load
Generally, 4C hair is the ideal hair type for locs. There is no need to be stressed about unraveling.
4. Style Longevity
The tightness of 4C curls helps to keep styles bound together and looking good on days 2, 3, 4 and beyond.
5. Less Frizz
Tight 4C curls stick closer to the scalp and tend not to frizz up as much as their looser counterparts.
Your styling options are pretty much endless because your hair is so versatile, with the ability to go from tight curl to straight. Plus the tightness of the curl adds ‘stiffness’ to the hair, which lends structure.
