Embracing your natural hair’s unique texture and curl pattern is key to choosing the right hairstyle. For 4B hair, which is characterized by tight, coily curls, finding the right cut and style can be a game-changer. We spoke with hair expert Linda Miller to get the lowdown on the best ways to style and care for 4B hair.

Understanding your Hair

“Understanding your hair texture is prime,” says Miller. “4B hair has a tight coil pattern, which can range from fine to coarse.” Knowing your hair’s thickness and porosity is crucial for determining the best products and care routine.

Styling Tips

Miller recommends using products that suit your hair’s unique porosity. “Start with a good hydrating shampoo and conditioner,” she advises. “You may need to shampoo less often, but co-washing (using conditioner in place of shampoo) is a great option.”
