I love my 4b hair! Mainly because of the volume (love big hair) and dare I say, the shrinkage! I hated my shrinkage when I first BC'ed but now I love how I can go from a huge blown out fro to a closely cropped shrunken fro and everything in between.
I love this thread! We needed more activity in the 4b thread so I'm glad someone posted a positive thread about the pro's of this texture.
There's a lot of negativity towards 4b hair and a lot of threads from women new to the site w/ a predominately 4b texture who are looking to alter their texture. A lot of times it's the same excuse, my hair is dry, hard to deal with, tangles and etc. It's easy to list all of the negatives that come along w/ this texture but what are some of the positives to having this super kinky texture. I'll start:
-our hair can hold a style for weeks if we keep it up.
-4b inspirational pic thread
-our texture is one of the easier ones to take care of, it likes moisture and it likes to be left alone.
I think that I'm a 4b-4c (still trying to learn how to add pics.) but anyway. It took a while for me to accept my texture,which seems to change every once in a while. But on my good hair days I love it. My hair is thinner and straighter in the top and that can be agravating but I'm still trying to find that perfect product. I think that twistouts are the best thing for 4b hair. This site has been a BIG help you all are AWSOME.

Reason: to change texture type
Allthough i have only been transitioning for about 2 months and have a about 3 inches of natural 4b maybe 4c new growth i love the fact that its so thick and all this years of damage and relaxers i didnt go bold and i think its the best afro ever and its so soft to the touch
