make it curl

I have a patch of 4b hair on the side of my head that just will not curl. How do you ladies define your curls?

Shampoo: Suave daily clarifying ( when I feel that need)
Conditioners: AOHSR, MM, olive oil

    Hi soon2be,

    Well.. 4b hair by definition doesn't curl on its own.

    I just leave my 4b section alone, but if you want to get some curl in yours, you can either do finger twists (some ladies use gels for this) or you can do 2-strand twists.

    Hope this helps!
    YES WE CAN!

    Hi,

    A finger twist is when you twirl your hair around your finger, and the hair forms a coil.

    The miss jessie's website talks about these two styles:

    finger twists are called "coil outs"

    2-strand twists are called a "twist set" http://missjessies.com/twist101.htm


    These styles can be done with all different types of products, from clear gels to heavy creams.

    Hope this helps!
