How to figure your curl type

Curl type describes the way your hair curls and the size of your curls. Most black people fall into the type 4 classification. This article will cover type 4A, 4B, and 4C.  




  • Do not comb or brush your hair
  • Apply little bit of leave in conditioner into hair. 
  • Fingercomb and examine your strands.
  • Most people have more than one curl type.
  • Examine hair on top, sides, crown and nape.
  • The dominate curl pattern is your curl type.



TYPE 4A





TYPE 4B



TYPE 4C
Are you type 4c?
If your coils are very small, like the spring in a ball point pen, you are 4C. You have low to no shine. Your hair is dense and can give the appearance of being wooley, coarse or kinky. 








Curl type does not dictate what care products you use on your hair. Curl type only makes a difference in how you achieve a style and the final look of a style. A 4a wash and go will look slightly different than a 4c wash and go. 

Check out my list of products that work great on 4C hair.

How to blow out your hair with no damage!


Lots of naturals prefer to blow out their tightly coiled hair. This enables Afro hair to show more length.  The most common way naturals stretch their hair is by blowing it out with a blow dryer. However, blow dryers are very damaging to Afro hair.


Two reasons blow dryers are bad for your hair

1. Blow dryers suck all the moisture from your hair. This makes your already dry hair worst.
2. They cause split ends, thin ends and breakage.

IF YOUR GOAL IS TO GROW YOUR HAIR LONG AND STRONG STAY AWAY FROM BLOW DRYERS AND ELECTRIC BLOW DRYING BRUSHES. 

The smoothest healthiest blow out you can get, is to set your hair with magnetic rollers

Magnetic rollers come small to jumbo sizes. 

HOW TO STRETCH HAIR ON MAGNETIC ROLLERS

1. For the best stretch choose large, extra large or jumbo size magnetic rollers.


2. Apply leave in conditioner to soaking wet hair. Next apply a styling mousse then seal in with oil. 

3. Take skinny sections, and roll hair snug and smooth onto the roller. Allow hair to air dry  for the healthiest set. 

4. Once your hair has fully dried, remove rollers and you will have a nice crisp blow out. From this blowout, you can create your styles and expect more hang time. 


Retwist nightly to maintain stretch.  Do not add anymore water based moisturizer to hair.  The water in the moisturizer will cause your hair to shrink.


Scalp Stimulation treatment for growth

The CoilyQueens Regimen is divided into 3 parts: moisturize, stimulate and protect. In this article I cover the stimulate part of the regimen. Hair growth only happens at the hair root, under the scalp. Often when you have slow hair growth, you blame it entirely on genetics.  However circulation is most likely the reason for your slow hair growth. 


Stimulation is circulation. For optimal health we want healthy blood circulation. 


Things which effect healthy circulation:
*Daily exercise
*Eliminating stress
*Eating lots of fruits and vegetables
*Drinking 64 ounces of water daily

Often due to stress our scalp and neck become tense. When the scalp stays tensed, it interferes with optimal blood flow to the hair root. This greatly slows your hair growth down. You might be capable of growing 1/2 an inch or more per month. But due to poor circulation you only grow 1/4 of an inch per month. 

These following processes, practiced often in combination with the tips above, will help you stimulate better blood flow to your scalp. Make them a habit and watch your hair growth thrive. You will reach your length goals before you know it.  


2 stimulation techniques to pump up your hair growth


1. Stimulating tea spray

Vee's Stimulating Minty Tea Rinse:
one peppermint tea bag(scalp stimulator)
one horsetail tea bag (hair growth)
3 drops of pure peppermint oil (scalp stimulator)
4 drops of pure eucalyptus oil (stimulation, anti-fungal/antibacterial)

HOW TO MAKE:
1 clean water bottle
Boil 2 cups of water
(allow water to sit for one minute after boiling)
place 2 tea bags in a cup, and pour hot (not boiling) water over tea bags
Let tea seep for 15 minutes (cover while steeping)
After tea is cool, add 3 drops of pure peppermint oil and 4 drops of eucalyptus and mix

HOW TO USE: Put tea in your spray bottle and spray and massage Minty Rinse on to scalp.
Put remaining rinse into fridge and let it get cold.
Then saturate your hair strands with the remaining Minty Rinse.
Do not store this rinse, make tea on the day you plan to use it. To be used in your final step of shampooing, to stimulate and wake up your hair follicles and help with hair breakage. And the Eucalyptus is great for killing fungus and antibacterial. 


2. Scalp brushing
Stimulate the hair root with a soft bristle toothbrush. Brush the scalp 3 times a week using the special scalp brushing technique.  Full details here

Great working and affordable hair growth vitamins




When going for long length, you want to add a hair vitamin or multi vitamin to your diet.  Most people do not receive all of the daily nutrients required. This is mostly due to consuming lots of fast food. This is also due to cooking food and depleting it of its nutrients. 
This is a good quality supplement, that I have taken for several years. They work great and you can find them at most stores. 

A hair vitamin helps your hair strands grow out strong. Strong hair does not break that easily. This enables you to keep hair on your head longer and reach your length goals. 


How to take your hair from flat to FULL!



2 products, that make your strands thicker and stronger.

2012


Henna coats your hair strands and makes them stronger. The micro particles of  Henna plant stick to each strand, making hair thicker. Be sure to purchase 100% pure henna. 





Protein treatments: (temporary)

True protein treatments, such as the Aphogee 2 step, temporarily adhere small particles of keratin protein to hair. This reinforces the hair and your hair looks thicker from the protein. This treatments lasts 4 to 6 weeks.
