The truth is, although protective styling in great? It doesn’t give your hair an opportunity to grow because we keep stressing the hair back to back.

Well in order to know how to care and love your hair, it’s important to know what kind of hair your hair falls under. This will influence what styles you can and cannot do and what products to us as well.
With the types of hair, we have the Wavy in 2A,2B, and 2C. Curly 3A, 3B, and 3C, Kinky 4A, 4B, and 4C. Most African naturalistas have the Kinky 4A and 4B hair which is quite hard to manage but the growth process is amazing! We will delve into the types of hair conversation on another day but for now, watch this video on some basic 4c hairstyles you can try out.
