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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Protective styles (usually stretched buns)
Keeping her hair stretched
Leaving the hair alone

I also think NappyFu is real 4C and she is super honest in her videos and struggles. Her hair so much like mine that I have learned a lot from her

I have learned so much from these and other vloggers. I definitely have 4B/4C hair and am learning how to care for it properly. I still get very rude and negative comments about my hair from others. However, I do not care and have hopes of having very healthy and long hair. I love this website as well.

Deb, you can’t let those people discourage you. The entire process you, did for YOU! It’s your journey. Your hair will come back healthier than ever. When they see you a year from now they will be???? your hair is so beautiful. It’s grown so much. Then in your head say yup , but u were hating on it in the beginning. That’s always the best way to quiet the haters. Do u!????????

Deb, how r u? I just tried to log onto the Castor Oil Week 8 . Did you notice the website is changing people’s pictures into aliens pictures? It’s also asking if you are human. I just want to be sure before I post anything. I know her site has been hacked before . Be cautious.

Hi, I am doing well. I noticed that the website changed as well. I have posted for Week 8 but you cannot post photos. I will take your advice and be carful


20 years ago I went natural before it was popular and my cousin called
me nappy-headed behind my back, but a few years later when I had a head
full of long curls, she ran her fingers through my hair and said, “I
wish my hair was curly like yours!” The sh*t talkers will be jealous one day!

Lol, You are right about it! ????
