My middle daughter, Taylor, has Type 4 in a family of Type 3 heads. According to Naturally Curly, Type 4 hair is defined as:
“Type 4 hair can range from fine and thin to wiry and coarse with lots and lots of strands densely packed together. Coily hair has fewer cuticle layers than any other hair type, which means that it has less protection from the damage inflicted by combing, brushing, curling, blow-drying and straightening.”
So, naturally, when I received My Honey Child Type 4 Hair Crème to review, I shoved it in her eagerly awaiting hands as it was the perfect fit for her hair. Taylor always says she needs just plain old “grease” for her hair – an oil heavy enough to tame her coily hair and at the same time give it needed moisture. After trying My Honey Child Type 4 Hair Crème one time, Taylor was pretty much hooked.
A bestest friend is someone you can trust with anything, Well this is true with the TYPE 4 Hair Creme. This creme delivers on contact. The Type 4 hair desires moisture 100 %. This thick and rich creme that loves thick, puffy and dry hair. Say goodbye to dry edges, brittle ends and dry roots.
Provides optimal hydration Uniquely formulated to add moisture and shine while reducing breakage and split ends.
Ingredients: Soy butter, olive butter, raw honey ,coconut butter, sesame oil , baoHen oil, sunflower seed oil, wheat germ oil, cuscus grass extract, eclipta erecta oil, turmeric ,essential oils and optiphen (preservative).
Directions: Apply a quarter size amount of the TYPE 4 Hair Creme between palms and gently distribute through hair. Can be used on wet or dry hair. Creates long-lasting moisture. Great for double strand twist styles, to elongate curls and smooth waves. Store in a cool dry place.
I was totally afraid to use the cream because it said for type 4 hair, and my hair is so fine that heavier oils and creams just weigh it down. I have to say though that I love it on my edges to control my wiry greys. And, it’s the perfect hydrator for my dry ends. I found that the crème sinks into my hair and does not sit on top – my main pet peeve with traditional hair oils.
Taylor uses this oil as a daily grooming product and on her twist outs or braid outs. She has noted that a little bit of this concentrated crème goes a long way, so she only has to use a very little when she twists or braids her hair at night. And, in the morning, her twist out looks shiny with elongated curls, a benefit that the product promises. She is also able to skip a day with the product on occasion as the hydration lasts for such a long period of time.
