Length.....

what's the longest your hair's ever been? I hear that being Type 4 shouldn't prevent you from having and showing length and yet my hair has never as far as I can remember, made it much past the bottom of my shoulder blades. I can count on one hand, on one finger even, the number of true 4b people in my life whose hair has gotten much longer than that - apart from those who indulge in weaves. Anyone have any pictures?

I saw one pic where she stretched a piece of hair - it looked almost waist length.

Are you looking for pics of type 4 hair that is not stretched but still long? 4b hair tends to grow our rather than down, so it will look big rather than long. 4a can grow down, I think but shrinks a lot. I would also be interested in seeing long unstretched 4a hair. I have 4a in the back that want to grow past my shoulders when dry. It grows down, but it shrinks a lot!

i think i may have found my HG. Its suave firm control gel the biloge not off and john fridia curls and swirls i am sooooooooooo happy my search is over
Long is relative. Long for some is shoulder length. Plus, what most people think of as typical non-chemically altered AA hair is not going to hang and show its full length. It's just an inate characteristic of that sort of hair. I think it's hysterical how shocked people are on the few occasions they've seen me with blowdried and flatironed hair.

People don't think our hair grows b/c they have bought into a beauty asthetic that can't typically be met by them.
