Here Are The 4C Hair Products Your Kinks & Curls Deserve

Take the guessing game out of shopping and ship items perfectly suited for your strands right to your home this holiday season.

Hair

We don't have to tell you how neglected 4C hair is when it comes to the beauty industry. Even though brands routinely hit the market with new launches they say were formulated to work on all hair textures, it often doesn't take long for ladies with tighter textures to refute those claims and head back to the drawing board to replicate the concoctions they've crafted over the years to cleanse, hydrate, and define their curls and coils.

More power to the beauties who have time to put in that amount of work, but we think we speak for everyone when we say 4C ladies want to hit the aisles and pick up products that work for them straight off the shelves like everyone else -- as they should. To make it a bit easier to do that, we've put together a list of the best products for 4C hair so you can take the guessing game out of shopping and ship items perfectly suited for your strands right to your home this holiday season.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
