The primary two textures, type 3 and 4A, 4B, 4C hair for women of color have a lot of similarities, differences, and common factors. For instance, those who have type 3, it appears to be wavy when it is wet. But as soon as it starts to dry it quickly returns to its curly state. Type 4 natural hair will remain curly when it is damp and have tighter curls or coils when it is dry. I love all different types of natural hair, and I am so happy that more women are starting to embrace their natural textures. I have been natural since May of 2009, and I did my big chop Jan 3, 2010. I am going to share with you some of the significant distinctions between the different hair textures and some great tips to take care of your hair.
