Default 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?

Really cute hair but it's not particularly long. My hair easily reaches that length. I was looking for Type 4 hair that is really long, like bra strap length

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

I wasn't really factoring in the shrinkage thing I guess. I think most type 4 hair stretches and even doubles in legnth when you stretch it out.

This is true. 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!

Put it in your signature line. And remember to put the whole link so that we can see. The last time you had it up it was the complete address and therefore I couldnt see your pics. Our use this... remember to take out the spaces and plug in the correct url.

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.

Valid point. Strange how many people there are who are sure that 'our' hair simply doesn't grow.... all hair GROWS....

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