Understanding Dryness in 4c Hair

Hey Curl Friends! Let’s Talk About Why 4c Hair Gets So Dry

If you’ve got beautiful 4c curls like many of us here, you know the struggle can sometimes be real when it comes to keeping those coils hydrated and happy. And You probably asking yourself " Why is my 4c hair so dry? But fear not, you’re not alone in this journey! Today, let’s dive into why 4c hair tends to be on the drier side and how we can give our locks the love they deserve.

Why Does 4c Hair Get So Dry Anyway?

First things first, let’s chat about why our 4c hair often feels like it’s thirsting for moisture:

  • Tight Coils, Less Moisture Distribution: Our gorgeous 4c coils are tightly packed, which means it’s a bit trickier for those natural oils produced by our scalps to make their way down the hair shaft. This can leave our ends feeling a little parched.

When you hear High Porosity, Picture Quick Absorption: 4c hair tends to have high porosity, which is great for soaking up moisture like a sponge. But it also means that moisture can escape just as fast as it’s absorbed, leaving our strands feeling dry and brittle.

  • Environmental Factors: Factors like harsh weather, central heating, and even hard water can strip our hair of its natural oils, leaving it feeling dry and thirsty.
  • Styling and Manipulation: Let’s be real, we love to switch up our styles! But frequent styling, heat, and chemical treatments can take a toll on our hair, leading to moisture loss and dryness.

So, What Can We Do About It?

Now that we know why our 4c hair tends to be on the dry side, let’s talk about some tips and tricks to keep those curls moisturized and thriving:

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate: And no, we’re not just talking about our hair! Yes Drinking plenty of water helps to keep our bodies hydrated, which in turn reflects in the health of our hair. We’re talking Moisturizing Products FTW: Invest in hydrating mist, conditioners, and leave-in treatments specifically formulated for dry, 4c hair. Look for ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera to quench those curls. Or You can try our Hair Butter and  for deep Conditioning Sessions: Treat your hair to a weekly deep conditioning session to replenish moisture and strengthen those strands. Pop on a shower cap and let your favorite deep conditioner work its magic for 30 minutes to an hour.

  2. Protective Styling: Embrace protective styles like twists, braids, and buns to give your hair a break from manipulation and help retain moisture.
