      Lmao! ? 4b isn’t mixed race hair, that would be more like 3b or 3cThe person asking the question has to look for a hair type chart to understand the different types of curls and coils… it’s too long to explain

    4c is curled hair that doesn’t retain moisture. It’s curved like alphabet C

    Type 3c Curly is tight corkscrew shaped curls about ¼” in diameter. When in its natural state, this hair type looses 35% to 45% of the hair length in comparison to when straight.

    Type 4a Tight corkscrew shaped curls about 1/8” in diameter, creating full shrinkage and frizz. When in its natural state, this hair type looses 50% to 60% of the hair length in comparison to when straight.

    If any of your strands have a zig zag pattern rather that a coil, then those are 4b if shrinkage is 70% to 75%, or 4c if shrinkage is 80%.

    Knowing hair porosity is next step, may need extra hydration.
    Also important is knowing your hair’s texture. This is the size of the diameter of one hair strand; classified as fine, medium and coarse. Fine hair has the smallest diameter followed by medium and coarse, which have the largest diameter. The texture affects the hair’s ability to effectively bend to form curls, resist damage and hold the weight of products.
