  1. I do not try to make my 4C hair into a different hair type. I have ADHD so doing a lot of steps for my hair is a lot of work for me. Even my skin care products are very little (only 3 products).
    The shampoo, deep conditioning, conditioner, then blow dry, section my hair and put more products into my scalp and rest of the hair, it is a lot of work for me even tho I do it once week.

    This is not disagreeing with the video and the rest of comments.

    I can appreciate the way we do and style wigs as a beautiful, cultural practice. But we also have to admit that their predominance is wrapped up in anti blackness. If the styles were kinky or coily, that would be one thing. But they are straight, wavy/wet and wavy, or loosely curled. If not wigs, folks are trying to “define their curls” – which is loaded too. Anywho, so few of us wearing our hair.

  4. Locs are the best hair decision for 4c hair I just get up & go for the most part wash day only takes 30 minutes I don’t have to use conditioner if I don’t want to the best part no detangling my hair has grown sooo much since being locked for 5 years let me add it saves sooo much money because I don’t need tons of products or waste my money on lace fronts wigs or extensions period I literally only use a moisturizer and a oil

  5. My complaint about natural hair is if I don’t braid(plait) it at night even with a scarf it will seriously detangle and I get crazy fairy knots. The humidity in my location is going to make it shrink so it’s not even about stretching no matter the stretch.. if it’s properly moisturized it will shrink🫠 so how are yall keeping your hair set angles at night without braiding every night and wear your Afro the next day? Serious question, help me… I just want to throw my bonnet on and go to bed

    I love that I watched this this this morning. I’ve been looking into at home keratin treatments because it is inaccessible how expensive they are to get at the salon. There are so many solutions to my problem these days..

    I love them so much because they wear off. It’s a great example of how I absolutely do not want to actually have straight hair, but the option to “wear it straight”

    I have felt pressure and wanted to wear these wigs and weaves and have a sleek look through the salon… But could absolutely never justify it.

    I have been as close to natural as I could possibly be for 12 years and the only thing I’m concerned with is length retention techniques that allow me to be diverse with my hair styles. No I do not want to “lay my edges” my edges don’t fly away.. they’re exactly where they’re supposed to be. Lol I want a sleek gelled down style to match my tennis dress and a kinky curly updo to match my flowy sarong.

    I think both the anti-blackness of it all and the obsession with branding is keeping people from having versatile and diverse styles, looks and acceptance of experimentation… and they definitely don’t present blackness as an element to have fun with and be played with. I refuse to think that way.

    Natural hair is hard to manage. Let’s just keep it real lol if we all have 4 type hair. We know it’s hard to manage. Idk why black people act like relaxing and popping on a wig means you hate your hair lol Personally, my formula is silk press, braids, Afro throughout the year. My natural hair takes 30/45min to detangle alone…this natural hair is no joke…. Straight hair is easier to manage. Black people talk like this as if we are the only people with thick and curly hair.

  8. I believe we're confusing the art of styling your 4C hair, with attempting to mimic other hair types, whether straight or wavy. While our hair is versatile and can be manipulated to resemble various textures, it's essential to recognize and embrace its natural state. For instance, wearing it in its naturally coiled form or opting for locked hairstyles.

    In the context of an afro hairstyle, where the hair is combed but maintains its natural texture, this would be as the standard style for 4C hair, regardless of length. It's worth noting that 4C hair can indeed grow long, and over time, its weight will naturally cause it to elongate.

    Throughout history, African cultures have showcased an array of intricate hairstyles unique to their heritage, without the intention of mimicking other hair types.

    Even if opting for an afro wig, the goal is for it to resemble the natural appearance of combed afro-textured hair, rather than conforming to Eurocentric beauty standards or unrealistic expectations of defined curls.

    It's essential to remain mindful of commercial influences that may attempt to exploit insecurities or create unnecessary beauty standards solely for profit.

    Yes! I remember when the kinky hair styles were kinky hair styles. I had someone call my bantu knots messy because they werent blow dried, slicked down, and filled in with extension…BANTU KNOTS BRUH.

  10. You are right, I think it's not the texture that's the main problem as to why many 🖤 woman don't wear their natural hair out. It's the styling!
