Kinkgenetics drawstring ponytails are 100% virgin human hair and is for 4A-4B naturalistas. 4A-4B is tightly coiled hair that has an "S" or "Z" pattern. The circumference of the spirals is close to that of a crochet needle. This hair type often experiences shrinkage up to 75% of its actual hair length. KinkGenetics comes in its natural color - #1b which is blackish/brown.
All hair is measured straight. This means you lose about 4 inches. For example, 16 inches is 16 inches when straight, but 12 inches with the curl pattern.
Maintenance: KinkGenetics does require more maintenance because of the tight curl pattern. To preserve the hair and ensure longevity, finger combing is suggested. Co-Wash the hair biweekly and Aussie: Miracle Moiste Conditioner or Herbal Essences: Hello Hydration can be used for more slip when finger combing. If you choose to comb the hair, use a wide tooth comb (preferably a detangling brush) and start from the ends then work your way up.
