Yes but the longer it gets the less likely it will be worn that way. If you really do have 4b pattern it is tangling because there aren't any curls clumping together. I knew when I made it past SL I could only do WNG a few times a year, and it was a huge planning effort to ensure I didn't get overcome by tangles. The 4b parts of my hair would turn into dreads... However once I got toward BSL my 4b sections hung in microscopic, VERY tiny coils that clumped in fuzzy sections almost like ringlets but no curl pattern, and I could do a WNG again, with kind of a charming Sideshow Bob-like (Simpsons) appearance, that's the best I can explain it. It was cute, I guess...
By the way my signature photo is of my wash and go ponytail. It was nearly BSL and because I was 4a/b it shrank a lot. It's safer that letting it all out because as long as my roots are secure I can get the ends sorted out. I believe this type of hair can only be worn out short or pretty long, just based on experience, when I have medium length it's like all I can do is twists or ponytails....
No heat since August 2015
