I get a note from one of my fans, who tells me that seeing what I do with my type 4 hair has made them more at ease with their own. I always enjoy looking at the videos and photos they submit when they copy some of the looks I execute.

It’s really wonderful. When it comes to representation and people’s acceptance of type 4 hair, I think we’ve made some progress, but there is still a lot more work to be done, especially in the area of shorter or thinner type 4 hair. We as a community really need to make more progress in that area.
