The struggle is real! How do I know this?
When I started my natural hair journey, I was obsessed with with Temi’s hair. Everyday, I prayed to God to increase my hair inches miraculously. It never happened and I wasn’t bothered because prayer without work is dead.
I stopped obsessing and started taking care of my hair and from my learning process, I discovered how to put my shrinked 4c hair in a bun/ sleek updo. I will use pictures to show the step by step process.
You may be wondering why I ruled out using comb on my hair.?
I will tell you in a bit!

The major concern of every 4c Naturalista is the problem of hair retention. I can authoritatively state that 4c hair is one of the most difficult hairs to manage. You have to go through the process of prepoo, washing, deep conditioning, protein treatment and trimming to have a flourishing hair. So the reason why I don’t use comb on my hair all the time is to retain length. Stick with us still as we show you how you can retain length below.
