Hey there! Treating 4C natural hair can be quite challenging, but it's definitely doable. Here are some tips:

1. Moisturize: 4C hair tends to be dry, so it's crucial to keep it moisturized. Use a good leave-in conditioner and seal it in with a natural oil like coconut oil or shea butter.

2. Detangle gently: Use a wide-tooth hair brush or your fingers to unreavel your hair while it's wet and coated with conditioner. Make sure to start at the last and work your way up to avoid breakage.

3. Wash less frequently: Unlike other hair types, doesn't need to be washed as often. Shampooing too frequently can sac your hair of its natural oils, leading to exhaustion and breakage. Aim to rinse your hair once a week or every other week.

4. Protective styles: Consider protective styles like braids, twists, or buns to help retain length and protect your hair from damage.

5. Satin/silk pillowcase: Sleeping on a satin or silk pillowcase can help reduce breakage and frizz. Regular cotton pillowcases can cause friction, leading to damage.

Remember, everyone's hair is different, so it may take few trial and error to find what works good for your hair type and texture. Good luck!
