as the weather warms up, the air can become dryer, which can lead to dry and brittle kinks! so make sure to moisturize your hair regularly because 4C kinks needs extra moisture, fren!
2. avoid over-washing your hair
during the spring, it's common to sweat more. let’s be real, frens. if you're spending more time outdoors and working on that summer body in the gym…. it is what it is!
however, over-washing your hair can strip your kinks of it’s natural oils. this leads to dryness. so instead of washing your hair every day, try to limit it to once a week.
3. use protective styles:
protective styles, such as braids, twists, and updos, can help you protect your hair from every element and prevent breakage. they also make it easier to manage your hair during the spring when the weather can be unpredictable.
4. be gentle when detangling
detangling your hair can be a challenge, especially if you have 4C hair. to prevent breakage, be gentle with your precious kinks when detangling your hair. use your 4C ONLY detangle brush or your fingers to gently detangle your hair, starting from the ends and working your way up to the roots.

deep conditioning restores moisture and nourishes your kinks. during the spring, consider deep conditioning your hair at least once a week.
