Kinky Hair Type 4


Hair will have kinks and twists and possibly coils but does not form an "S" shape. It may be "L" shaped with bends rather than  curves in it. It may form tight coils or "O" shapes (tighter than the "ringlets" formed by Type 3 hair. This type of hair generally doesn't change shape much wet or dry. It can be wiry and usually is fragile. It tends to be drier than other hair types because the bends and twists not only provide points that are more fragile, they actually make it hard for the natural oil (sebum) produced by the scalp to reach the ends of the hair shaft. Because the cuticles do not lay flat on Type 4 hair the hair tends to be less shiny than Types 1, 2 and 3 and people will often think natural Black hair is dry or dull loo.Hair Type 4 Its has a fine texture, hasvery little elasticity, its extremely tight wiry curl and its very fragile. 

​We specialize in haircuts for curly hair. Our price structure reflects the educational level of our stylists and technicians, which is determined by training and years of experience. We would also like to stress to new clients that if a Junior stylist level 3 - 2 member of staff is chosen to color or cut the hair they will always seek the confirmation of the Master Hair Aritist/Owner Valdéh before they commence. Valdéh does not accept discounts. All discounts valid only for Junior Stylist Level 1-3.

 When looking at an individual hair strand you'll notice a Z pattern. Hair Type 4 is usually the driest of all hair types. It’s very fragile and breaks very easily. Be very gentle, and condition frequently when dealing with Hair Type 4.
