Finding new styles for your Type 4 hair can be challenging. Lucky for you, we’ve done all the work. Here are seven styles to try if you have Type 4 hair.
Wash & Go
Although it’s often thought that those with Type 4 hair can’t achieve a wash and go style, this is simply not true. All you need are the right products and a little patience. And since Type 4 hair is more prone to shrinkage, you’ll want to achieve this style with the Don’t Shrink — Elongating Curling Gel.
Finger coils are a favorite amongst Type 4s and it’s easy to see why. Though they may be a little time consuming, they can last for a week. Our Ice Curls Glossy Curling Jelly can help with accomplishing this style.
Flat twists are essentially two styles in one and they look awesome on Type 4 hair. Regardless if you’re looking to wear them still twisted or take them out, our Curl La La — Defining Curl Custard will be great for nailing this style.
Have you tried the shingle method for your hair yet? If not, you should give it a try. This method of styling can come in super handy if you’re attempting a wash and go style that needs a little more definition. The Curl Boss — Coconut Curling Gelée or the Don’t Shrink can help with achieving this look.
Flat twists and low bun
If you love the flat twist style, then take it up a notch by styling them a little different. Wearing a low bun after you’ve undone the bottom of your twists can change the look of an old-style or just be a way to change things up with a new style. Our Butter Crème — Intensive Moisture Sealant will be a good product for this.
Twisted or braided bob
Whether you choose to add weave or just want to use your own natural hair, twisting or braiding your hair into a bob is a cute and timeless style for you to wear. And, it can last as long as you’d like it to. Try our Seal It Up — Hydrating Sealing Butter for this look.
Braids with twisted ends
Spice things up a bit with your style by going half and half with braids and twists. Give your hair a stylish set of flat braids and once you get to the part of your hair that you feel comfortable with, start twisting the ends instead of braiding them. Our Curl Mane-tenance — Defining Curl Whip can be used to achieve this style.
