Layla has 4B Type Hair and Loves Learning How to Care for Them

Layla Lillie Madison is a fun-loving, delightful 5-year-old. She loves her bouncy 4b type hair and is enjoying learning how to protect and care for her curls.

Layla is a super girly girl, but she also loves to play basketball and catch bugs. If you say “Ice cream,” she will be there! Layla is half Egyptian, half African-American, with a sprinkle of Mexican. We love that Layla has an idea of where her curls might have come from. Check out our new feature, Deeply Rooted, where we are trying to help curly girls create family trees and learn where they get their curly hair!
