Type 4 hair, also called ‘kinky’ hair is very sensitive to harsh treatment due to the fact that it has fewer cuticle layers than other hair types. Therefore everything that stresses the hair has to be avoided in order to keep it great looking.
The worst thing you can do for Type 4 Hair includes:
- Combing and brushing it too much and with too harsh instruments like metal combs or brushes.
- Curling it even more or plaiting it too tight.
- Blow drying it too long or with too much heat.
- Straightening it.
- Coloring or bleaching it with harsh chemicals.
You pick and choose what you think is best.
