How to Make Natural Hair Curly and Defined (Type 4 Hair)


Do you desire to make your natural hair curly and defined? It's totally possible!

I bet you went natural and you were expecting these beautifully defined popping curls only to discover your styles are not living up to your expectations.

If you have type 4b or 4c hair, you will find that your hair has a more cottony undefined look, which on its own is gorgeous. However, if you desire a curly and more defined look the good news is you can do it.

When seeking to make natural hair more curly and defined keep these things in mind

  • Depending on the length and thickness of your hair the results you desire may take a bit more time than someone with loose curls.
  • This does not mean that it will take hours (expect to spend 20-30 minutes).
  • You must create the curl definition by either coiling your strands or raking a product that has a good hold like our Flaxseed Gel to create the curls you crave.
  • To get the best definition you will want to start with clean freshly washed damp hair.

Here's a look at what you need to do to create curl definition when you are doing a wash and go on Type 4 coily 4b or 4c hair.
