4C ONLY presents: a chat with a stylist [recap]
frens...the groupchat is back!! (well...kinda)
you remember the groupchat, sis. the “groupchat” was our virtual panel that was full of our favorite 4C hair influencers. during this piping hot chat, we talked about all things related to the wellness and culture of the natural hair community. (and we do mean allll things!) it was a safe space that all 4C naturals needed, and we couldn’t be happier to be the hair brand to provide that for you!
(p.s. if you missed our first group chat, check out the replay on our YouTube!)
we’re not gonna hold you...we kinda missed hearing our frens talk. it’s empowering to hear the highs and lows of embracing our 4C hair from 4C queens themselves!
"i'm glad we're sharing the way we are,” darcye told alicia, our CMO of 4C ONLY. “i’m glad we can be direct and honest with each other, learning from one another. It’s good for those [of us] with 4C hair.”
hold on to your coils, fren: daryce dropped some major gems for us! here are the top three takeaways from our chat with a stylist:
1. our too clean shampoo is top two and it’s not two
“it definitely cleanses the hair,” daryce said. “it has great and clean ingredients, like aloe vera and squalane. let’s call out the fact everything is in a jar; genius, because now you can scoop it out!”
with a head full of clean coils, you can basically do anything. our too clean shampoo is highly-concentrated, which means that it needs to be diluted with water. once you get this baby in the shower, you’ll have the pleasure of getting a really good scrub. (we all know how nice that feels!)
rocking a protective style like cute box braids or senegalese twists? you can still get clean:
“your fingertips are your frens,” darcye joked. “focus closely on your scalp to gently scrub and wash. [afterwards] dry off your braids to not get any fungus [growing].”
2. a lil bit goes a long way
let’s say that again for our frens in the back: you don’t need to use too much.
we all like to be extra every now and then...but not for this. not with our kinks in question. don’t be heavy-handed or greedy trying to get in on this goodness; we’re not going anywhere, fren. 4C ONLY is gonna be here for a while...so sit back, relax, and enjoy responsibly.
3. don’t sleep on too soft and too slick
as much as we love seeing too clean (shampoo) and too thicke (deep conditioner) get their well-deserved praise, we can’t let our other two stars of the too easy collection get looked over! for these kinks, we need allll of that goodness.
too soft (leave-in conditioner) is exactly what you need when you’re ready to go easy on yourself. “too soft changed the game for me,” daryce says. “it’s light, buttery, fluffy...it can also be used as a heat protectant!”
as for our styling cream, too slick...this one is a real crowd-pleaser. “the favorite. the game-changer. the silent hero,” daryce says. “give it some credit! it preserves your coils.”
you heard her, fren.
our chat with a stylist was exactly what we needed to kick off the first day of black history month. here’s the better news: we’ll be back with another chat with a stylist on february 15th! so after you enjoy your day of love, come join us the next day on Instagram LIVE while we chat about all things 4C.
see you then, fren!
