How often should you wash 4b 4C hair?
4C hair should be Shampoo-washed once or twice a month and Co-washed in between. Shampooing is important in maintaining a clean and healthy scalp. However, washing your 4c hair with shampoo too often strips the hair of its natural oils and moisture which may lead to damage.
Is 4b hair softer than 4C?
Unlike 4a or 4c, 4b has tight “Z” shaped strands with little definition in curl shape. Often, 4b hair is fluffy and can be soft or coarse depending on hair texture. 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 do you keep your 4b hair moisturized?
We offered these seven tips:
- Use a true moisturizer that has water as 1st or 2nd ingredient.
- Seal in moisture with an oil like Shea butter, castor oil, or avocado oil.
- Trim your ends regularly.
- Avoid heat.
- Keep your hands out of your hair.
- Sleep with a satin bonnet or pillow.
- Deep condition regularly.
When should I wash 4B hair?
Dirty hair needs to be cleansed routinely to ensure a healthy scalp. However, for Type 4b naturals, shampooing weekly may be too drying and can cause unnecessary breakage. To mitigate this, shampoo your 4b coils every 2 weeks, with a cleansing conditioner on alternate weeks.
When should you wash 4B hair?
You should only ever wash your hair when absolutely necessary. On in-between days, either use a dry shampoo or dampen your hair and spruce up a product of your choice. As we keep saying: your 4B type hair loves moisture, and washing rids it of that. So keep washes to a minimum.
