Hi All! I was surfing the internet this evening looking for general maintenance tips for type 4 natural hair. I’ve mostly been flat ironing my hair for the last few months as this style has turned out to be the lowest maintenance option for me. When I do flat-twists, I make each twist so small that it’s VERY time consuming to re-twist at night before going to bed…I’ve been avoiding the twists. I’m still not comfortable rocking the wash and go style so that leaves me with flat ironing. I’ve been feeling a little guilty about applying so much heat to my hair the last few months so I was online looking for tips on maintaining healthy natural type 4 hair. I ran across an article that features a few type 4 naturalistas who are successfully maintaining length. Thought I’d pass the article along in case there are some type 4 naturals who are seeking advice on achieving and maintaining length.
