Can You Learn Anything From A Naturalista With A Different Texture From You?

‘Guuurl there is no way, that sistah with the 3C curls is going to be able to tell me anything  about my 4XZ, I mean seriously is she even a sistah?! Lets keep it real, she couldn’t contribute to my hair journey even if she tried.’

How many times have you heard or read comments like that from a natural woman about another? It’s sad because the truth is we can all learn something from each other regardless of what the texture your hair is.

‘If I was a 3c I woulda never relaxed my hair!’ is another common but incorrect admonishment.

Again, this is patently untrue because most of us probably had the same struggles, the same horrible relaxer stories and stressful transitions. We actually have much more in common than we allow each other to believe.

The beauty of natural hair is that no two heads are the same, and though we have hair type and texture charts as guides, often the charts can get in the way of some serious learning and education. Of course it is never enough to just say that around these parts we like to dig a little deeper so brace yourself.


What the 3A-3C can learn from the 4A-4C

Creative Ways To Add Moisture

If you are in the 4A-4C category more than likely you are in a continuous cycle of trying to keep your naturally dry hair moisturized. In comparison to the 3 category curly girls, keeping moisture in is harder for you because your hair is curlier and moisture doesn’t travel well along a curvy road.

The type 4 curly girls know how to moisturize, they often have the best recipes hands down for moisture retention. If they are not in the kitchen making a concoction they can often give a very thorough review of a product that absolutely works and does what it claims to do.

For product reviews and DIY’s for moisture retention, type 4 curly girls win hands down.

How To Do A Wicked Updo

Our type 4 curly girls tend to practice a lot of protective styling because like we said before there is a ever present battle to retain moisture on a daily basis.

I learnt a lot from Whitney about my hair only having a TWA lol and her texture differs from mine

Shanice Goodridge-Flemming

I even learn from white girls loool each one teach one. We can all learn from each other so yes you can. I’m more into my 3c 4a and 4c curlies but 2s and 1s can get it too. Especially when I straighten my hair naturally they have all the tricks (the 2s and 1s) who cares. And it’s hair type not texture they are two different things.

Yes you can you just have to keep in mind your results may differ due to different textures.

Beth Renee

Not on products no! Maybe some hairstyles

Cynthia Tucker-James

Pretty girls w/pretty hair!

Charlina Lina

Thats a good question. I do follow naturalistas whose hair texture is different than mine. This is mainly for techniques but i know my finished product likely wont look exactly like theirs because our textures are different. Its ok though lol.

Mia Eubanks

I don’t know. I have the same texture as naptural85

Alisha Waxter

Yes

Laverne Wood
