So, you’ve decided to go natural and stop using heat in your hair care routine.
Have you figured out how you’re going to wear your hair?
Here are some of our favorite, basic natural hair styles that look great on a variety of looks. If you’re new to Natural Black Hair Care, then check out Kimberly’s ebook on natural black hair care.
1. Teeny-Weeny ‘Fro
A cute and sophisticated teeny-weeny afro (TWA) is definitely trending. Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o is certainly an inspiration for those who wish to Big Chop.
2. Senegalese Twists
For those of you who wish to swim, mermaid twists offer versatility, length, and are low-maintence.
Remember to apply oil on your scalp every night (we love Jamaican black castor oil), and use rosemary oil around your edges to promote hair growth.
3. Afros with Hair Bands
Your summer hairstyle can be dressed up with an elegant hairband. You can purchase a few from Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters, or Etsy.
To achieve this look, twist up your wet and freshly-washed hair and let the curl pattern set over night or under the dryer one hour. Second, make sure it is completely dry. Then, unravel your twists!
4. Bushy Blowout
To achieve this look, use the stretch method to blow out your hair. Alternatively, you can braid up your hair into eight sections while it’s wet using your favorite setting cream. Then, you need to allow your summer hairstyle to dry completely under a hairdryer or overnight. Once it’s completely dry, unbraid your hair and style.
