Wigs by day, satin caps by night - winter protective styling according to Jouelzy.

If you're an avid watcher of YouTube and have sought tips on caring for Type 4 hair, chances are Jouelzy has popped up in your search results. If not, read up: she offers advice to people with particularly coarse and coily hair. Not to mention her bubbly yet straight-to-the-point personality jumps out of her videos and can't be easily ignored.

1. How long have you been natural? I don’t really have a ‘natural hair journey’. I have hair that grows out of my head, I like to style it and also like it to be as healthy as possible. So I do things to keep it cute and healthy. I’ve shaved my head several times — but it’s about 5 years since the last complete shave.

2. What's your daily hair routine? Put a wig on. In all seriousness, during the winter time I wear a lot of wigs as ‘protective styling’ because I can’t deal with the cold air and it zapping all the precious moisture from my hair. Daily routine is highly dependent on the hair style that I wear and I try to avoid having to put my hands in my hair daily.

3. What are your favorite products?

I love Alikay Naturals Lemongrass Leave-In Conditioner as a conditioner and My HoneyChild Type 4 Hair Creme as a moisturizer. More of my faves can be found in My Favorite Product series on YouTube.

I would like to know more about how to arrange curly bio hair under a wig so as both to best preserve delicate bio hair and not appear to have an oversize head due to bulk of bio hair underneath.
