7 Tips for Styling Your Child's 4c Hair

For those of you that follow the numbers and letters rule of hair, let me give you some Monday Mid-Day Tips.

4c hair has the tightest curls of all hair patterns with hairs forming tight S's, Z's, or coils. 4c hair shares many of the other characteristics of type 4 hair and, of course, individuals with 4c hair can have different hair densities and porosity. These differences can change how your child's hair behaves.

These are some of the defining qualities of 4c hair:

  • Your child's hair dries out quickly or struggles to maintain moisture more than other curl patterns

  • Your child's hair can experience extreme shrinkage, sometimes up to 75%!

  • Your child's hair is prone to tangles and matting if not properly cared for and regularly detangled

  • Your child's hair is fragile and prone to breakage

So how do you address the unique challenges (and enjoy the unique beauty!) that come with 4c hair? The trick is a natural hair regimen that keeps your hair healthy.
