How do I know if I have 4C or 4b hair?
4b hair is easily distinguished by its zigzag pattern. Unlike 4a or 4c, 4b has tight “Z” shaped strands with little definition in curl shape. Because of the sharp angles of the zigzag strands, 4b hair is prone to dryness as oil from the scalp has trouble traveling to the tips of the hair.

How can I weigh down 4b hair?
Oils that have been known to work well with hair, like olive oil or jojoba oil, can elongate curls and weigh them down. Use coconut oil, if your hair is especially dry. Tame and moisturize curls, while also controlling frizz, by warming a 1⁄2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) of your chosen oil in your hands.
Can you moisturize your hair with just water?
