    4A silky Hair Below:

    All these images are 4A Hair Type. Also, there are varieties of textures of the same hair type. It could be silky, wiry, coliy and thready as well as cottony textures of the same hair types. Hope this helps.


    Pattern: 3C/4A 
    Characteristics: (Spongy/Coarse/Curly Kinky)
    Porosity: High
    Density: Medium
    Hair Width: Medium Sized Strands
    Elasticity: Medium Elasticity

    SL - APL - BSL - MBL - WL - TBL

    My hair is armpit length when silk pressed (so close to BSL).
    Natural state: awkward stage; shoulder length (front is above chin length and back is almost shoulder length).
    Goal: MBL

    All the ladies hair is dry. Yes, they all have 4A type of hair. The third lady has 4A/4B (mixed). Rarely, these days people have more than one type of hair. My hair type is mixed too, (3C/4A) but mostly 3C.

    Confused? Yeah, I know... lol Try some researching  and or read my thread.

    Yeah, actually I was a bit confused, but mainly because there were quite a few youtubers I saw who have very similar curl patterns as those examples (especially the first and third examples), but claimed they were 4b or 4c.

    These images I copied from Google (search for 4A types images). Also, be aware that some people can have the same hair type, but look a lil different. e.g. All 3C hair types does not look alike. One can have coarse hair and the other silky. Hope this helps a little...

    Honestly I don't think 4a looks all that different from similar types when picked out. My mom had mostly 3c hair and when she picks it out you'd think it was 4c. If she were to wet it again the loose curls would form.
    Forget what hurt you, but never forget what it taught you.

    Yeah, my hair is like that too.
