4C hair is recognised within the type 4 hair category and it is the tightest coil pattern. It tends to be tightly packed and therefore experiences a lot of shrinkage. At the same time, it has thin strands that can be particularly fragile and prone to breakage.
As one of the most delicate hair types, you need to care for 4C hair properly to avoid any unwanted breakage. We have partnered with Syteria, resident 4C Hair expert at 4C Chick, to give us her top 10 tips to care and maintain 4C hair for the best and healthiest results.
4C hair is recognised within the type 4 hair category and is commonly referred to as coily hair.
What’s The Difference Between Type 4 hair & Other Hair Types?
It’s easier to understand the different curly hair types when looked at in relation to each other:
Within each of these numerical types there is also an alphabetical type and this explains the size of each curl within the category. Type C is the tightest curl size, type A the largest curl size, and type B sits between the two. Type 4C hair is the tightest Z-type pattern, making it the most densely packed curl type.
