I'm a 4b with crazy shrinkage. I deep condition every week and use a mixture of oils and shea butter during the week. I use clays (bentonite, rhassoul and kaolin) once a month to cleanse scalp and hair.

It's good to know everyone has a mix of hair textures.

I think I range from mainly 4a to 4b to 3c.

Judging from all these pictures, I'm pretty sure I am 4b and 4a mixed.  My shrinkage, even with part of my hair relaxed, is also ridiculous.  Straight, my hair hits my bra strap, but right now, it's barely grazing my shoulders and I stopped putting heat on it because it's getting humid over here and I refuse to use a flat iron more than once a week.

I've seen your hair BWOM. It's a lot different from my 4c.

She is my hair twin >>


My hair's just so porous. I hate the fact that 4c fros are seethrough in the daylight and don't have that thick, luscious look that 3a-4b hair until we're damn near 30 inches in length.

*sigh*

So unfortunate that you feel this way.
I do sympathize because it can be frustrating if you want to keep it simple with the hair regimen and you can't or if a hair product doesn't work for your hair just to name an example.
Your hair is not crap though.
Some day you will find a product or hair style that works for your hair and then hopefully you will feel differently about it.
It starts with positive reinforcement....and it must come from you.
Easier said than done, I know, but it's a start.
