Question: Why is an afro called an afro?

It is called the afro because most people who can grow an afro naturally have ancestors from Africa. So they grew their hair into afros on purpose. The afro became less popular in the middle of the 1970s through the late 1990s. Then it came back with the natural hair movement.

What is 4C black hair?

Type 4C. 4C textures are similar to 4B textures, but the tightly coiled strands are more fragile and have a very tight zig-zag pattern that is sometimes indiscernible to the eye. This hair type experiences the greatest amount of shrinkage — about 75 percent or more — than the other textures.

What is Type 4C natural hair?

Type 4C: You have hair as densely packed as 4B, just with less definition as well as more shrinkage. The hair texture, which is tightly coiled like all Type 4s, ranges from super fine and soft to coarse and wiry. Its incredibly delicate hair. Try using a humectant with a creamy consistency as a leave-in product.
