How to Wash 4C Natural Hair

how to wash 4c natural hair

I actually already have a video on this, but that video is prior to me getting my fancy smancy camera equipment and folks still haven’t figured out that YouTube is owned by Google, meaning the search function is pretty darn awesome…so ya know, I guess it was time to do a new one. I still think my old one is much more thorough, but this one is much more shiny.

No, I do not mention any products in the video. On purpose! You shouldn’t be that attached to product, and I don’t want to encourage people to buy unnecessary products when the video is really more about technique. I don’t really use shampoo because I don’t use products with silicone, so shampoo isn’t necessary. If you do use products with silicones, you should start this wash routine with shampoo. Same process just an extra step is added. I do this same process whether I’m shampooing + conditioning, co-washing or deep conditioning. Nothing changes but the products that I use. Wondering what products I usually use? Check here.

Do I always do this when I wash my hair? Honestly no, but I should be doing it. We all have our lazy moments or bad attitude days or just one of those days when you want to be…whatever, cause inertia is mutha. However, when I don’t do this, I immediately see the difference. As tedious as finger detangling it makes all the difference and keeping your hair in sections will not only ensure that your hair is stretched but you also makes it easier to style your hair. It just goes smoother and quicker. Trust me on this one!

    Great video! I’ve been doing sections for about 2 months now and it is so much easier with my hair. Even saves time.

    How did you style your hair at the end of the video? Was is the result of the twisted bantu, a twist out or curlformers? Please answer your hair is absolutely GORGEOUS!

    I just wanted to tell you that you have really inspired me! I love your videos, they are informational as well as entertaining. I used to want to have that ‘luscious’ 3abc type hair, but NOW (thanks to you) I love my 4c hair. Thank you so much, Jouelzy!
