What type of oil is recommended for 3c/4a hair?

    You double posted.

    There isn't an oil specific to curl pattern. The oils that work best for your hair depend on texture and porosity. Fine hair does well with light oils like grapeseed, almond, and apricot kernel. Low porosity hair, regardless of texture, usually doesn't absorb castor oil well. If it helps, I know many of the 4a posters in the past had great results with castor oil.

    3b/c, medium-coarse, low porosity, high density
    HG: Jessicurl Too Shea and Kinky Curly Curling Custard
    Shampoo: nonsulfate shampoo and Suave Naturals sulfate shampoo when needed
