Embracing your natural hair texture can be an empowering journey. For those with 4C hair, the wide range of styling options can be both exciting and overwhelming. To help navigate this versatile hair type, we’ve turned to Linda Miller, a seasoned hair care expert with a wealth of insight on 4C hair.

Understanding Your Hair’s Unique Needs

According to Miller, the key to managing 4C hair lies in understanding its unique qualities. “4C hair is known for its tight coil pattern and can seem more coarse and dry than other hair types,” she explains. “This hair type is very versatile but can be more prone to breakage if not properly cared for. The key is to keep the hair well moisturized and protected.”

Mastering the Basics of 4C Hair Care

Miller emphasizes the importance of a well-rounded hair care routine, rooted in proper cleansing and conditioning. She advises using a sulfate-free shampoo, which is gentler on the hair and scalp, and following up with a moisturizing conditioner. “Deep conditioning is also important to keep the hair moisturized and soft,” she adds. Miller recommends using a wide-tooth comb or detangling brush during conditioning to minimize breakage.
