Tips and Hacks

  • When brushing hair always brush gently through tangles 
  • When combing and brushing always start at the ends first then the rest of your hair.(DO NOT bush and comb from root to ends.)
  • If you dont feel like applying serum with your hand apply serum to your brush and use that to apply the serum evenly.
  • When taking out your braid outs and twist outs make sure to have a little serum on your fingertips for an easier takedown process
  • During the week if your hair looks dry add a little of your fav leave- in conditioner and follow up and a few pumps of serum to revive your curls between wash days. 

Type 4A


  • Coily or tightly curled hair
  • Can look coarse but is actually very soft and delicate
  • Lots of tight coils and forms an “S” pattern when stretched
  • 4A hair is prone to dryness and damage, so it needs all the moisture it can get, to keep it healthy and strong


Type 4B

  • 4B hair does not have a clearly defined curl pattern
  • It's soft and fluffy
  • Coils form a “Z” shape, and it resembles a zigzag shape with sharp angles
  • Prone to dryness 

Type 4C

  • 4C textures are similar to 4B textures, but the tightly coiled strands are more fragile and less definition.
  • Very tight zig-zag pattern that is sometimes indiscernible to the eye
  • Greatest amount of shrinkage (about 75 percent or more) 
  • 4b hair is fluffy and can be soft or coarse depending on hair texture
  • Tendency to break and tangle more easily
