Expert Product Picks for 4B: Coily Crimpy Hair

Type 4b hair has a less defined curl pattern, and has a cotton-like feel. It can range from fine/thin to wiry/coarse with lots and lots of strands densely packed together. Instead of curling or coiling, the hair bends in sharp angles like the letter "Z" and often shrinks up to 75% of the actual hair length. Type 4b hair is also very fragile, so you need to take great care when working with it.

Quick tip: Detangle hair with a lot of conditioner in your hair and use a comb or detangling brush. Cleanse your scalp anywhere from every 2 days to every 2 weeks.
