4Z hair means your hair has very tight coils and extremely high density. I once saw a very interesting video where the poster joked that she thought her straightened hair would instantly turn into 4z hair in heavy snow.

While this will make most people start screaming, it must not be called a struggle, that's what natural hair movement is all about, and it's LOVELY!

Did You Think You Were The Only Girl Bothered By 4z Hair?


There are many girls who think "Are you the only one with such curly hair?" before seeing more 4z hair, but in fact, it is not. When you open Tik Tok or Instagram, you will find that everyone is bravely showing their natural and real 4z hair, the comment section is also very loving.

Although less than 20% of people in the world are born with naturally curly hair, 4z hair is not uncommon. Not only black women, but some Asians and whites also have very curly natural hair.
