School is in session and scheduled will become hectic. The weather will change and time will seem to fly by. Styling natural hair may seem like a daunting task and it may also seem easier to just throw a wig on or get braids. Even if you do, you would still need to take care of your hair under it all.
So why not learn how to take care of your natural and style it fashionably so you can rock your natural with confidence? If you have already established a wash day, you can choose a staple style like two strand twists.
Two strand twists can be created in a number of ways such as:
- with diamond shaped parts
- chunky sized
- micro sized
- curled on the ends
- in combination with cornrows
- and on any length or stage of natural hair
For medium to longer lengths of hair, you can shampoo, condition and create medium sized two strand twists all over your head. Once the twists have been created, you can wear them loose of fashion them in any number of styles like:
- french rolls
- pin ups
- bantu knots
- french braids
Maintaining twists are simple. Just wrap them up at night and refresh your scalp 3 times a week with a spray on leave in conditioner. Apply olive or coconut oil for shine and to seal in moisture. The time it takes to do all of these things are worth it in the long run. Hair that is damaged by the wearing of extensions can create irreparable damage.
