Often times, many naturals have more than one hair type or curl pattern. It’s quite common for you to have a tighter curl pattern in one area and a looser pattern throughout your hair or vice versa. However, this is nothing that should make your natural hair care routine harder than any one else’s it just requires that you treat the area that has a different texture slightly differently than you would the curl pattern that is more dominant throughout the rest of your hair.
In my case, I have hair type 4b throughout the majority of my hair. In the middle section of my hair, my curl pattern seems to be even tighter and less defined, which means most likely I am working with 4c hair type in this section of my hair. Since, this area is a bit tighter it is more prone to breakage which means I have to pay extra attention to how I care for it. Which means more moisture and definitely more of an effort to protect this area.
Also if I were to wear a curly style, it is the area of my hair that will have the least amount of definition, which is why I have to make more of an effort to define this area by two strand twisting as well as bantu knotting or using rods along with my twists.
Dealing with two textures could work the other way around as well, you may have a tighter less defined pattern throughout your hair with a small section of a looser pattern with more definition. All this means is that you have to treat the two textures differently. If your edges in the back are a little more kinky then the rest of your hair a hair butter will help to smooth your edges on out. If you have that one spot of hair that is lacking definition from the rest of your hair, then use braids, twists, and rods to help make the texture more consistent.
