Dealing with Type 4 hair doesn’t have to be a chore! Learning how to care for and style your coily hair is a combination of having the right technique, being consistent with your regimen, and using the best products for your curl type. Kinky- and coily-haired girls raved when Mielle dropped our Pomegranate & Honey line during NYFW last year, because it's specifically made with your thick, curly hair in mind! Keep reading to learn why this line is a favorite of women with Type 4 texture and curl pattern, and try it for yourself today!

Why We Love Pomegranate & Honey for Type 4 Hair

The two featured ingredients in this line create a dynamic duo that will nourish your natural hair follicle back to life. Honey is known as a natural humectant, able to draw moisture from the air into each thirsty hair strand. The punicic acid in pomegranate is known to improve circulation to the scalp and encourage healthy hair, and pomegranate oil is great for deep conditioning textured hair.

Our four-product Pomegranate & Honey line is what we like to call a Prime + Define protective styling system, specifically formulated for thick, curly, Type 4 hair. It addresses the number one problem Type 4 hair is known to have: moisture retention. PRIME this hair type with our Pomegranate & Honey Leave-In Conditioner then DEFINE with three protective styling options to create soft, deep curl definition, while nourishing the hair follicle.

Deep Conditioning for Type 4 Hair: Pomegranate & Honey Leave-In Conditioner

Prepping your style with a leave-in deep conditioning product while your hair is still damp is one step to making sure wet hair stays moisturized and soft. Our Pomegranate & Honey Leave-In Conditioner is infused with natural oils and extracts to add shine, prevent frizz without weighing the hair down, and aid in detangling each hair strand. To learn why we recommend incorporating a leave-in conditioner into your healthy hair care routine, check out our blog post on the benefits and experience them for yourself with the Pomegranate & Honey line!

Smooth Your Type 4 Hair with Curl Smoothie

Mielle’s Pomegranate & Honey Curl Smoothie gives a soft definition for weightless curls, adding shine to kinky hair and preventing frizz. It also provides a deeper curl definition for finer hair types with high porosity. When used as a daily moisturizer, our Curl Smoothie provides long-lasting, intense hydration to maintain healthy hair. We've seen many layer our Pomegranate & Honey Curl Smoothie with one of the following stylers for extra moisture and definition, and you can watch this demonstration by Leniza Evy to see what we mean!

Want to Twist Your Type 4 Hair? Use Twisting Soufflé

For the Type 4 girl who loves a good twist-out, braid-out, or bantu knot-out, our Pomegranate & Honey Twisting Soufflé is the natural hair-styling product for you! It shapes the curl pattern with semi-deep definition, conditioning each strand while adding moisture and shine. Check out the results with this quick twist-and-curl how-to from Ijeoma Kolaand listen for her thoughts on how moisturizing this line is for the natural hair type!

How to Wash-and-Go Type 4 Hair With Curling Custard

Looking for the perfect wash-and-go for your Type 4 hair? Try our Pomegranate & Honey Curling Custard! This is a lightweight, easy-to-finger-comb formula for long-lasting deep definition and brilliant shine. The custard also works great on rod sets when you want those perfectly set ringlets. Watch how Janae uses our Curling Custard to style her wash-and-go for super defined, shiny curls!

If you have Type 4 thick, curly hair, and you’re looking for maximum hydration and definition for everything from your wash-and-gos to twist-outs, our Pomegranate & Honey Collection is for you! We also have curly hair gel styling products to keep you looking stunning anywhere you go. Have you tried it yet? Let us know in the comments or find us on social media!
