    Posted: Jan 08 2013 at 11:22pm
Is there any direct info about getting a loose 3a/3b-like texture on 4c hair?

I've been googling for a couple hours now, and I only seem to find people preaching at posters and telling them that they HAVE to accept their 4c hair as is.

Anyways, I'm a bit past shoulder length and currently natural. I was hoping for something that would make my hair fairly low-maintenance yet have the desired curl pattern. 

Bantu knots and twist-outs have just not been cutting it for me. I always seem deal with a lot of humidity and rain. In those conditions Bantu knots and Braid/Twist outs never stuck around very long in my hair whether it was relaxed or natural (with the exception of the time living in Brazil when I accidentally got a BKT when I thought I was getting a touch-up LOL)

Anyways, I want some curls like the pic below. Is that possible on 4c? (I'm willing to use chemicals.)

Also, can it hold up when exposed to water and humidity? 



Thanks!

Since you are willing to use chemicals then I would suggest finding a stylist who does good curly perms. Take that picture with you as a point of reference. The biggest challenge will be finding a reputable stylist who is experience in doing curly perms today.

You can also get a similar look from a straw set on your hair or play around with different style rods to get the desired curl pattern. If humidity is a big issue there are lots of products on the market which help to block the humidity. Even then a roller set will only last 3 days to 2 weeks on average.

Google NuNaat Keratin Straightening system or something like that.  They sell the kit at select Walgreens.  I have one in my possession but haven't tried it yet.  I haven't found the time to try it out.

Um... A curly perm maybe. Other than that... Pretty much nothing will give you that look unless you got a weave.

I agree w Alex U. - a weave would give you that look. 
Getting a curly perm is risky - you might not like the end results. 
But curling your hair with perm rods could give you the curls you're looking for.. try something like this using smaller rods.

I would say do crochet braids and choose a loose patterned hair type. You'll be able to keep it for a while and it is easy maintenance.
