Maintaining 4A Hair Type

Maintaining 4A hair type can be a challenge since it is more prone to damage and dehydration than other hair types. It has a characteristic feature of very tight, curly, thick, or superfine coils. A healthy 4A hair should be shiny, soft, well defined, curly, and bouncy. Therefore, maintaining 4A hair entails keeping the hair moisturized. As such, below we have highlighted some ways of maintaining 4A hair type.

Use hydrating shampoo

Since this hair type is normally dry, you should use hydrating shampoo to provide the hair with moisture. Hairstylists recommend sulfate-free shampoos to strengthen the strands. Ensure that your fingers detangle the hair while applying shampoo and gently massage the scalp and roots then rinse.

Regular moisture

Frequent moisturizing is essential for 4A hair since it does not retain moisture for long. The hair becomes weaker when dry. Therefore, moisturizers such as coconut oil can penetrate the hair shaft hence useful during the shaping of curls.

Use silk or satin fabrics  

4A hair is prone to breakage especially when it is dry. As such, to prevent the hair from losing its moisture, stylists recommend the use of silk pillowcases and silk or satin bonnets. Avoid using cotton fabrics since they stress the hair strands making them weak. Additionally, when washing your hair, you should avoid using towels to dry; instead, use old t-shirts as they are gentler on the hair and do not strain the strands.

Deep conditioning

Deep conditioning after shampooing is necessary for the 4A hair type. It helps the hair to replenish moisture that is necessary for springy curls. Regular deep conditioning also helps to keep the hair healthy, shiny, and bouncy. People can use deep conditioners before the detangling process to minimize hair breakage. Deep conditioning helps to moisturize, nourish, and keep the hair strong.
