June 18, 2017: Latest addition to this page –> TightlyCurly.com Hair Products Ingredients List

Greetings, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Please check this page often for updates! At this page, I share the resources that I wish someone had shared with my when I first decided to wear my natural, Type 4 hair.

Information about caring for Type 3 and Type 4 hair is vast and  conflicting.  I’m STRAIGHT now that I’ve explored the streamlined collection of video clips, websites, and YouTube channels listed below.
