TIPS TO HELP YOUR 4C NATURAL HAIR GROW

Kinkier hair needs extra care because the hair texture is more fragile than other types. This means that if you want to have long hair, you must work hard and put forth the effort to take care of it.

Kinky hair grows ½ an inch per month on average. You need to maintain your hair well and do protective styling to help your 4c hair texture grow.

Be extra gentle when you care for your hair. You don’t need to run out and buy the most expensive products on the shelf, but you should try to create the most cost-effective solution to moisturize, detangle, and protect your hair.

Finger combing while the hair is damp, is one of the best methods of detangling. This process alone will lead to much less breakage and will result in hair growth.

Protective hairstyles such as twists, cornrows, braids, coils and tuck and roll require less daily manipulation. Less manipulation will help you moisturize your mane, retain more length and reduce shedding.

Type 4c natural hair is delicate by nature. However, if you create a natural hair care regimen and rely on protective styling, your 4c natural hair will remain healthy, moisturized and bountiful.
