If there’s one thing that will forever remain undeniable about Black hair, is it’s versatility.
While the world in general still has a long way to go when it comes to dismantling stupid stereotypes about Black hair, Black people everywhere haven’t let this stop them from rocking their Afros.
The natural hair movement gaining even more momentum exposed the years of damage being fed notions that more silkier and straighter hair is beautiful caused.
For longer than I would love to recount, 4C hair has been referred to as stubborn and unpresentable.
Now while this notion has slightly changed with 4c hair becoming more talked about and catered to (products wise), what has followed it is even none 4C having people claiming to have 4C hair.
From Tiktok, to YouTube and even under Instagram hashtags , watching people who couldn’t be further from having 4C hair claim to be 4C has been very interesting.
While it’s important to note that Black hair being versatile means that a person can have 4C hair and a mix of 2 other textures on their head, I’m personally tired of scrolling through thousands of none 4C hair having people to get to the real stuff.
If you’re equally as tired, here’s 40 ACTUAL 4C hairstyle ideas for the days when you need a quick & cute hairstyle for your 4c mane.
As we collectively work on making 4C hair more mainstream, I hope you’ll continue to rock your 4c hair with confidence and reaffirm little Black girls everywhere about the beauty of their kinky & coily natural hair.
