Five Beautiful Styles for African Hair

African hair is generally coarse and kinky. The use of hair relaxers has left African hair without an identity for many generations. This and many more reasons have led to the lack of knowledge on how to style natural African hair. Presently black people are taking pride in their culture and are embracing with pride the nature and texture of African hair. Below are five beautiful styles for natural African hair.

Short natural hair

Among the various techniques is the simple tuck and pin, applying a different color to keep it exciting, twists, pinups, cute coils.

The Afro

The Afro is easy to maintain and there are many ways to style an afro. Try parting it to get an asymmetrical shape to your afro, comb it to a natural Afro look. It is easy to maintain, and you can do it within a minute to go to an event, work, or school.

Cornrows

 This style easy to handle and different patterns can be made by your hairstylist. Stylists over the decades have recommended this method to give African hair room to grow without much disturbance.

Braids

Braids have been around for ages. With modern creativity, braids are turning heads left, right and center with creative styles like crisscrossed goddess braids, box braids, braided buns, Mohawk braids, and so much more. Consult your hairstylist and the internet for more braid styles.

Dreadlocks

Dreadlocks are becoming more popular, and the age-old notion that it is dirty hair is slowly dying. They are easy to maintain. The beauty about dreadlocks is that you can do it yourself at home with dread wax, residue free shampoo, a metal comb, and rubber bands. Stylists recommend regular washing and rolling.

Bad hair days are unavoidable. Investing in a scarf or head wrap will be a step in the right direction. Tie the scarf in any desirable fashion to complete your style for any occasion and any day.
