“Whenever I eventually started to look towards Google for hair counsel, I immediately reasoned that I had 4C hair, regardless of whether most of it was in locks. I remember genuinely thinking, because of all the natural hair tutorial videos that I watched, that if people with 4C hair could take care of their hair “the right way” their curls would loosen.
After I finally realized that my curl pattern couldn’t change, I felt let down. I appreciated the appearance of wavy hair, just not the wavy hair that I had. I wanted the “upside” wavy hair I saw all around the internet, just in light of the fact that it appeared to be prettier and more straightforward to make due.”
