What to look for: pattern, what pattern?
So, do you have type 4c hair? For starters, if you’ve got coily or kinky hair, that’s how you know you have type 4 hair. When it comes to curly hair types, this is the kind of hair that’s described as an afro. Have you ever pulled apart a click pen and seen the little spring that pushes the tip out? Yeah, if it looks familiar, that’s because that’s about what 4c natural hair looks like up close. From a little farther away, it can be hard to determine any pattern at all, but you’ve got a super densely packed head of Z shaped locks that hardly ever clump into defined coils.
