4A Hair Type

4A curls are dense with a very visible coily pattern. Your hair without oils and hydrating creams can lack curl definition making it prone to dryness.

Victoria or V for short, is a Brazilian naturalista who lives in Wisconsin. Moving to the U.S. meant major changes for V, especially with her hair. Our Black Vanilla – Moisture and Shine line quickly became her go-to, protecting her curls from the cold, dry Wisconsin air.

HER ALL-TIME FAVORITES

HER 4A CURL ROUTINE

Sunday Sunday is hair care day! I give my hair a boost of hydration using the Black Vanilla shampoo and conditioner. I follow by spraying the Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner and working the Coco Crème Coil Enhancing Moisture Butter through my hair. This leaves me with a wash and go I can wear for a few days.

Monday It’s Monday and I’m ready to face the week rocking my wash and go from yesterday. I like to reshape and fluff out my ‘fro before I head to my first class of the day.

Tuesday The winter months can get super cold here in Wisconsin making my hair dryer than usual. To hydrate and refresh my wash and go I like to use the Hair Milk Refresher Spray. I spritz some all over my hair, focusing on the more dryer areas.

Wednesday I like to switch up my look mid-week, so I’ll rock something like a high afro puff. I’ll brush my hair using the Black Vanilla Edge Control and tie my hair up. This is also one of my go-to choices for when I’m exercising! To go to bed, I style my hair in four braids to prepare for tomorrow’s braid-out.

Thursday I love the luscious curls I get with a braid out! To ensure that I don’t manipulate my hair too much when unravelling the braids, I use the Black Vanilla Pure Hair Oil. I take a few drops, rub it between my hands and start separating the braids. I finish off by fluffing out my roots, to give my hair some volume.

Friday Day 2 of my braid-out and my curls are still popping. My hair will typically last for a second day as long as I sleep on my satin pillowcase.

Saturday Olá Sábado! (Hello Saturday!) The weekend’s finally here which means it’s time for some much-needed fun. I want a cute and playful look to match my mood. I go for two afro puffs, part my hair in the middle, apply some Mimosa Hair Honey to add some shine and moisture, put each side up in a pony-tail, and I’m ready for my weekend adventure.
