Take a seat and buckle up for this type 4 hairstyle ride.

First the basics, what is type 4 hair? Naturally Curly defines type 4 hair as, “fine and thin or wiry and coarse, with densely packed coils. Coily hair may seem robust, but it’s actually the most fragile hair texture because it has the fewest cuticle layers to protect it from dryness. Its top concerns are maintaining moisture, avoiding tangles and counteracting shrinkage.”There are many products and hairstyles that will leave you with a healthy and flourishing. Here’s 20 that show just how much natural hair can do.
