Do you think this is true and why?

I'm thinking only ppl who have LOTS of experience with many types of hair can answer that.

I think any hair is hard to maintain if you dont know how to work with it

My friends daughter is a 3b and he kept cutting it because he didnt know how to deal with it, took me 15 minutes to detangle her hair. He thought I was a miracle worker.


Not so, you cant approach anyones hair thinking that its going to be a piece of cake because its looser or tighter.


Im a 4a/b and have no issues with my hair, NOW! Time and patience is the best tool anyone could have.

I think in general we might find that our tightest/shrinkiest pattern is more difficult than the rest. I had similar issues with my tightest pattern too, the hair there was broken, it was visibly my rough patch. You just have to learn to pay it more attention. I now always separate this section and baby it more than the rest, I cut the perm off of it (I'm transitioning) so that it won't deal with 2 textures. Just cater to it and be extra patient with hair that is more high maintenance than the rest.

I really don't understand the point of questions like this.

Instead of asking "Is ___ hair type the hardest to manage?", Why not put in the time and effort to figure out how manage it the best way you can?

It would definitely be a better use of time...

Many people (including some popular stylists) think that all hair types should be maintained the same way, and think that one hair type is better than the others. Imagine treating cashmere, silk, even linen, the same way as polyester or polyester blends!

Therefore, learning how to maintain hair type 4 (a,b,c) goes to the end of the list or has to be "restructured" into another hair type.

In reality, this hair type is one of the easiest to manage. I've met many ladies with all hair types who told me how healthy, voluminous,and pretty my hair was, AND how they wished her hair (mostly straight) was like mine. Of course, I used the opportunity to tell them how I maintain it, and they are surprised of what little I do.

Until enough people with type 4 hair embrace it, and refuse to compromise its integrity for any reason, the question the OP prompted will always be a controversial subject, and necessary.
