As a 4b, do you at all feel alienated from the 4as, 3cs, and above?

It irks me when people act like only 4b hair can have those negative characteristics when any hair type can be coarse, wiry, and unmanageable. My 4b is none of those things. My hair is soft and manageable with medium strands and medium thickness. Always has been.
But yea....4b is the red headed step child of the hair typing system. And no matter how much other hair types exclaim about it's beauty they all breath a sigh of relief when they realize their new growth has a S shaped wave or curl pattern.
Preach on sista!
4a-4b hair. Not sure yet so I'll just say both!
