I’ve been meaning to post this quick note about blow-drying for type 4b/c hair. Based on my one year plus experience of transitioning from relaxed to natural hair, beginning my styling process with a good blowout really helps my styles. Those of you who have type 4b/c hair know of the incredible shrinkage that results from wetting the hair. It’s really something to see the transformation unfold while doing the blowout. As I mentioned in earlier posts, I am not too afraid of applying the heat. I blow-dry my hair before doing the two-strand twists and before flat-ironing. It really helps me out.
