Anyone with long 4c Hair?

Posts: n/a
Sorry, but I mistyped my hair. I don't really know how to care for natural hair, and just started the the CG routine 2.5 weeks ago. I just took down my protective style and actually saw my natural hair. Previously, I did not know that you're only supposed to comb it when slathered in the conditioner in the shower, and used to begin combing/brushing my hair right out of the shower, before the steam would even evaporate. This time I comb in the shower with conditioner and then rinsed and saw that I'm not a 4c.

Sorry :S

However, the those 4C pics are beautiful!!!!

I think Cipriona from urban bush babes has long 4c. She never wears her hair loose but she took it down in one yt video. I could never do her reggie but her hair is beautiful.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
There are several people with long 4c hair, Mwedzi and Sera off the top of my head, as well as pooks

There are probably a few youtubers with 4C hair. I'm not sure if whoissugar would be more of a 4b or 4c, but her hair is slightly beyond BSL stretched:

I don't think I've seen her do a wash n go so I'm not sure what her hair texture looks in that state...but she has vids of her hair in pretty much every other style: freshly washed and detangled, bantu knotout, blowout, twistout, braidout, banded, puff, updo, braids, twists etc. You can search for her vids for those other styles.

African Export is a 4a/4b. She'd also be around BSL stretched. Here's her hair in a wash n go so you can get a fairly clear idea of her curl pattern:


How can you maintain this hair type without having so much to deal with? I don't have time nor the talent to play in my hair and create styles all day long and i feel my hair is suffering. Is there a low maintenance regimen that can be followed where I don't have to do so much to it and I can still see results. I know that not doing anything is just as damaging as playing in it too much is so are there any suggestions? I want long hair but not to the the tune of spending hours or a whole weekend doing all types of things to get it that way. I went natural for healthy hair and i thought it's supposed to be less of a fuss than a relaxer. Thanks.
