bootyfurl

Growing your 4B/4C natural hair to waist length is NO small feat. After all, learning your natural kinks after years of relaxing them takes both time and a shift in the way you think about hair care. However, I do want to acknowledge those who have surpassed waist length because such a milestone further demonstrates that kinky hair can grow really long. Here are three such women on YouTube:

1. Bootyfurl – Tailbone Length| Finger Detangle and Protective Styles

First off is Bootyfurl! She was first featured on BGLH years ago, and I’ve been following her ever since. Having reached waist length and then hip length, she is now in the realm of tailbone length!

HER REGIMEN:
Does not have a strict routine, per say, but is a big advocate of “keeping it simple” and “not doing so much”.
Strictly finger detangle.
Wear small twists or stretched protective styles.
Her staple products include coconut oil and castor oil.
Protects her hair every night.
Moisturizes regularly.

KEY TO HER LENGTH RETENTION:
Finger detangling
Protective styling
Keeping it simple

2. JoStylin – Almost Tailbone Length| Blow dry and Braids

Some of you may recognize JoStylin from this earlier post on a related topic. Well since then, she has gone from waist length to almost tailbone length, and this is with blowdrying and big braids!

HER REGIMEN:
Biweekly wash, condition, and seal followed by blow drying and jumbo braids.
Sometimes she will undo the braids and wear a braid out. However, this has become a rare occurrence as her hair has gotten longer.
Finger detangle on damp hair, rather than dry or soaking wet.
Washes in twisted/plaited sections.

KEY TO HER LENGTH RETENTION:
Low manipulation
Keeping her hair stretched (via blow dry and braids/braid outs)
Keeping it simple

3. Naturally High – Hip Length | Blow dry, Finger Detangle, and Buns

I have mentioned Naturally High a couple of times on BGLH because her hair blows my mind considering that we rarely see 4C naturals at a solid waist length. (At the time, I could only think of Sera25 and Aijo/Kemi21 from the Fotki hair album days.) Right now, Naturally High is hip length!

HER REGIMEN:
Finger detangle on dry hair after a coconut oil pre-poo.
Sometimes uses hair extensions (Marley Braid Hair) so that her hair isn’t exposed but further protected.
Shampoos once a month and co-washes in between.
Does hard core protein treatments (Aphogee 2-Step) to keep her hair strong.
Washes in twisted/plaited sections.
When she does blow dry, it is for stretching her roots; she does not use it much on the ends of her hair.

KEY TO HER LENGTH RETENTION:
Protective styles (usually stretched buns)
Keeping her hair stretched
Leaving the hair alone

WHERE YOU CAN FIND HER: Naturally High’s Channel

Have you checked out these ladies? Do you know of any other super long 4B/4C naturals?

I preferred and enjoyed the Naturally High video over Bootyfurl. IMO NAturally a High really showed finger delangle 4 b/c in all it glory. The snags. Webbing etc. I really appreciate that being a 4 b/c myself. The understand the points made in Bootyfurl video, however, the demo of picking up a IMO single strand of pre-detangled hair to show how it’s done just was a turn off for me. I like raw footage. It make go yeah that’s right. Now I’m paying more attention to closely watch yo see how she gets through it. Now I have something to… Read more »

Don’t forget xoDVF. She and her hair are amazing and her regimen is simple. She is on Instagram too.

Amma Mama

I believe that is her hair. She reminds me of Laila aka FusionsofCulture and Jess aka MahoganyCurls.

Except she’s already been exposed as passing off a wig as her own. Thread aptly titled , natural hair : catfish edition http://www.lipstickalley.com/showthread.php?t=670795&page=4 IDK why it wasn’t obvious to me before that thread. SMH the things people will do for attention.

Daa'iyah

Woooooooow! I’ve been hoodwinked! The end of this thread actually revealed that she is not only a hair fraud but an true fraud, criminally! Seems to have pled guilty to it and everything under her real name.

If this all is true, I truly pity her and pray that she finds the strength to just be herself!

lol xodvf is such a fake.

Welp

I think she very well could be wearing a wig. In that 2 strand twist tutorial when she started brushing her hair all rough and the hair shifted like a wig. Also she put in bantu knots and there was no scalp showing.

Lulu

yep and when she sprayed her hair with water and scrunched it up multiple times, it stayed exactly the same.

right and it the take down video for the flexi rod, the top of her head was never in the frame. How convenient. With all the video’s she has , she doesn’t know how to get her entire head into frame?? There was a picture somewhere of her in a green face mask..maybe on IG….and she had some weird “baby hair” pulled out from under the wig-hat-weave, while up in a bun. It was a different color and texture from the hair in the bun. Just crazy looking. I can’t believe someone would go to this level to lie. It’s… Read more »

LoL….Yes! I remember that MopTopMaven business…SMH….every so often there is one of these people. Unbelievable

Lulu

“I can’t believe someone would go to this level to lie. It’s such a same.”

Oh man, there was the MopTopMaven saga. That still sends my head spinning when I think about it.

cacey

the way that chile was brushin her hair in that one vid, LAWD! i was thinking there is no *way* this mane is real, because if it was, and she’s been going at it like that the entire time she’s been growing it out, it surely wouldn’t be that long, that full, and that intact and unbutchered! I’m on the side of the fence that says “it’s a fake”, just from this alone. And if this isn’t evidence, then at the very least, her regimen is suspect and i wouldn’t dare copy her methods for oiling or detangling natural hair.

Dananana

I agreed with you, until I got sucked into that entire LSA thread. Start from page 1, end at 14, and see if you still feel that way after. Girl is a fraud, but I don’t think it’s out of maliciousness or an ulterior motive…seems like something else.

Dense hair, particularly when it’s not separated into small sections wouldn’t really “show scalp.” I dunno, maybe it’s because I actually have hair somewhat similar to hers in length and texture (mine is tailbone length and kinky)… She does brush her hair in a manner that would be far too rough for my hair, but there are a lot of things that other naturals can do with their hair that I just can’t. I don’t know the girl, so I will never be able to feel her scalp to confirm anything. But if she says it’s real, I believe her.… Read more »

OMG! I remember her from when I first started watching videos on youtube about natural hair. I read through the link you provided, and I updated my flash player just so I could go look through her videos for myself. I had forgotten about her. This is ridiculous. You can not see her scalp, she had the same one “part” all the time for the most part (no pun), when she brushed her hair the whole thing moved like a wig. I can’t. I watched the two strand twist video and the flex rod video; I never saw a clean… Read more »

Not to be rude, but your link didn’t convince me of anything.

wait i read the article. there is still no proof that she’s lying. why would anybody lie like that about something as simple as hair. now im confused.

wowwwww r you serious that’s crazy

I’m going to give xoDVF a big “HMMMMMM…”
