WeÂ donâ€™t get too caught up in the number and letter hair typing system here, we prefer simply to dispense advice based on theÂ texture of the hairÂ (fine, coarse etc). But did you know that 4B hair is actually naturally dryer than any other hair type? The reason for this is because of the unique structure of the hair strand it just does not allow for moisture to be held or distributed throughout the hair as it would be in comparison to â€˜Sâ€™ curls or loose curls, but more about that later.
Lately the chatter in the forums and around the blogosphere have produced insinuations that the 4B category of hair is actually 4A hair when it is dry, un-moisturized and overall notÂ healthy. A shockinglyÂ inaccurateÂ and offensive statement if there ever was one.
