4a/4b Hair Type
Oils butters and creams are friends of mine. My extra coily strands are prone to tons of shrinkage. I embrace it or stretch it when I want to see some length.
Low Porosity Hair
The follicles on my hair strand do not have a lot of holes in them from damage or coloring. I retain moisture by deep conditioning and lifting the follicles that are tightly shut to allow moisture to flow through.
Sectioning is key, it helps me not become overwhelmed with the volume of hair. Although my hair is less prone to breakage than fine strands, I sure make sure I do a protein treatment to keep them strong.
