For natural hair types, finding the right styling routine and products can be challenging. Coily hair—also known as 4C hair, the tightest type of hair curl—tends to lose moisture rapidly, causing issues like frizziness, shrinkage and breakage. What’s more, when natural hair is cleansed and styled with the wrong type of products, these issues can be further exacerbated.
Aveda Texture Specialist Renee Gadar helped to clarify the nuanced needs of natural hair. She emphasized that the number one goal for those with 4C hair is to retain moisture, saying, “The right hair care formula can go a long way and fuse coils with springy nourishing hydration.”
With Renee’s guidance, we’re sharing our recommended natural hair care products and natural hair care styling tips.
