Long waistlength type 4 natural hair in its curly state

There are people who have long waist length or hip length natural hair. But this is usually when its stretched. Has anyone ever heard of someone who has long waist length or longer natural hair in its curly state? I would like to know this particularly for people who have tighter curls- type 4 hair.

I'm definitely a "curly" 2c. Sometimes curly and sometimes just wavy upper layer with a ringlety under layer. My hair has been thick and coarse since birth. Strawberry blonde in color that can and does change depending on the type and amount of light.


All in all, I'm happy with my hair type but almost for sure think yours is prettier.

There are quite a few uber-long 4a's on youtube... If you do a search for waist length 4a/natural hair something should come up... I actually just saw one the other day so I know they are posting on the vlogs more. But, the ones with longer lengths post also--which is what I think you are looking for, they are usually the ones who are going for the 'African' Crystal Gayle type length... hth.
If you look on google or pinterest there are quite a few photos on there of people with type 4 waist-length curls.

Spankie Valentine has super long curls, but I think hers are more 3B/3C

Growing my hair out Rapunzel-style
Thanks guys. The hair growing up is a major factor. I realise that now as it may not 'get to hit' waistlength, unless stretched.
