Default Why is there no 4c Forum Discussion?

I looked over the form and noticed there wasn't a 4c forum page...?? couldn't figure out how to create one...

You can't create forums...only admins can do that. I wish the type 4 boards were combined. I don't see a need for another forum.

The 4a board gets the most action, and it's not all from type 4a members.

Why are we buying the term 4c when it's the original description of 4b basically? It doesn't make sense to me when that typing system makes highly textured 4a girls the "real" 4a's and the not so textured 4a ladies now 4b. It makes no sense.

Not to hijack the thread, but seriously...

And +1 to NEA's comment

4b barely gets any play as it is, why would they create another forum for 4c (which imo, does not exist)? I wish they would combine the 4s.

i took a poll last year or year before that to see how people felt about combining the 4s. i thought the consensus was to combine but it never happened.

Default Ohhh...

okay, now it makes sense....I looked back and saw the poll that was taken. Yeah, there really isnt as much activity in 4b. A 4 or Kinky, whatever you wanna call us would be sufficient!

I'm confused as to what a 4c is supposed to be. I had a coworker tell me she was a 4c with such conviction the other day, but I was just confused...

I thought there were going to combine them too. I don't see a need for a 4c forum.

if they create a 4c, we'll have numerous threads about "why is the 4c board so quiet" or "Why are 4c ladies afraid of claiming 4c" or "Are 4as really all 4c, but don't want to claim it?"
because there will be very little traffic there

imo, there is no 4c

Yes, where is the 4c forum at? This is the only reason why I signed up to blog site. My hair is a 4c and very had to get to act right.

"4C' is not of Andre Walker. Somebody decided to add it in. There are variations among "4a" and "4b". My 4a/4b is hair is not necessarily like someone else's 4a/4b hair. It's not that simple.

There is no need to add another letter in the alphabet, which eliminates the need for an addtional forum. Hair typing always causes confusion, and it doesn't mean much at the end of the day, despite those who wanna vehemently argue that it does.

Those with the kinkiest, tightest, comb-breaking strands can STILL find their way..using the same products/techniques as the rest of the "Type 4" family.
