The Best Products For Type 4 Natural Hair

Dealing with “type 4” hair doesn’t have to be a chore! Learning how to care for and style your hair is part having the right technique, part consistency of your regimen and part using the best products. Kinky and coily haired girls raved when we dropped our Pomegranate & Honey line during NYFW last year because it's specifically made with your thick, tight curls in mind! Here is some info on why this line is a favorite for “type 4” hair.

Pomegranate & Honey Overview


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


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

Pomegranate & Honey Leave-In Conditioner

Prepping your style with a leave-in while the hair is still damp is one step to making sure it stays moisturized and soft. OurPomegranate & Honey Leave Conditioner is infused with other oils and natural extracts to add shine, prevent frizz without weighing the hair down and aid in detangling. Read some reasons why we recommend incorporating the step of using a leave-in conditioner in your routinehere!

Curl Smoothie

OurPomegranate & Honey Curl Smoothie gives soft definition for weightless curls, adding shine and preventing frizz. It provides deeper definition for finer hair types. When used as a daily moisturizer, the Curl Smoothie provides long-lasting, intense hydration. We've seen many layer our Pomegranate & Honey Curl Smoothie with one of the following stylers for extra moisture & definition. Watch thisdemo by LenizaEvy to see what we mean.

Twisting Soufflé

For the type 4 girl who loves a good twist-out, braid-out or bantu knot-out, our Pomegranate & Honey Twisting Soufflé may be the styler for you! It shapes curls with SEMI-DEEP definition, conditioning each strand while adding moisture and shine. Here’s a quicktwist-and-curl how-to from Ijeoma Kola.
