Regardless of hair type, you can grow your hair to long lengths with consistency and the right hair care methods. 4c hair does not necessarily grow slower than other hair types, it is just more fragile. This means you have to implement more measures to prevent breakage in order to see more length retention or hair growth.
Many 4c naturals who have long hair practice protective styling with simple styles like twists or low manipulation styles like a high puff.
The less you have to manipulate, comb or brush your hair the more length you will see. This is because every time you have to touch your hair you are opening up the opportunity for breakage to occur.
To smooth your ponytail fly aways down opt for tying your hair down with a scarf instead of brushing all the time.
Practice this simple formula:
- Protective style for at least a week
- Cleanse and Condition Your Hair
- Rinse and Repeat!
That’s it, the secret recipe 🙂 Do this with consistency and remember that growth does take time.
Growing 4c hair does take some patience but the recipe to achieving long hair goals is not very complex. 4c naturals if your hair goal is long hair, you can do it! Stick to the formula and you can make it happen.

A whole WORD! I still see ignorant statements about the internets that 4c hair is too hard to grow, or too unmanageable. 4c hair grows, it can just break at a faster rate! Sad to see that this stigma is still prevalent. Thanks for sharing this post.
Looking forward to growing more length, keeping moisture, and not having to style my hair daily.
Yesss! Great info. I’ll be doing a 6 month growth challenge this year. Hopefully for beautiful results! Xo
The too hard to grow is what was said back in the day. Back then there were not that many good deep conditioners and hair care products. I have always had problems with.growing my 4C hair. Now I have access to much better products. I love how healthy and strong my hair is. Hair care and cosmetics weren’t given the research and development for black women back in the day like they are now.
thank you for sharing
Glad you enjoyed 🙂
