Kinks and Coils (Hold the Curls): Care for Type 4 Hair.

May 16, 2013

Type 4 hair is the most versatile yet little understood hair type. What is type 4 hair? A hair texture typical of Afro-Descendants, which can range from fluffy/soft, coily, kinky, with little to no curl pattern. Much like other textured hair types, moisture is key for type 4 hair. The #1 recommended moisture source is WATER! In addition a water based conditioner such as the Maracuja Milk for Kinks Curls and Coils is key. Type 4 hair also thrives with natural oils and butters such as 100% Pure Argan Oil that lessen breakage and adds sheen and softness.
