    Default 4a with a little bit of 3c maybe mixed in. Does any one else have this

    My hair type is mostly 4a with alittle bit of 3c. Does anyone else have this type of hair, and if so what products are ok


    Right now I am just no pooing, with herbal essence hydrant moisture conditioner then after that just alittle oil. Some times i use olive oil or the sunsilk oil. it has coconut oil joba olive and almond about 7 different mixed together. At the present time im using alma oil. Its a bit strong in smell. but very little goes a long way. when i put it in either one or two braids until it time to wash again. Am I doing enough or should I be doing more.

    It's perfectly normal to have a mix of hair types on the same head.

    I think you're doing fine in terms of products. However, I know that different people will offer you different advice.

    I'll cosign with Claire76. It's rare for any head of hair to just have one texture throughout. Now, I do have a '3C patch' in my bang area (please know that I don't necessarily go along with the hair typing business). Guess that's my shout out to my momma, whose genes show up in just that one area.

    Are you doing enough? That truely depends on what your goals are with regards to maintenance and care of your hair. So I guess to answer that part of your question I need more information.

    Hello.
    My hair has a mix of these hairtypes. I actually have a demarcation line across the back of my head; the crown leans more toward 3c and the back and sides lean more toward 4a.
    You don't say whether the two hairtypes are mixed throughout your scalp; whether they are in distinct sections; or whether it is uniform hairtype all over, with the hair's behaviour a mix of both.
    Do not be afraid to use different products accordingly.
    My introductory post and some of my others might help you.
