The warm spring weather is fast approaching and no one has time for this…
So it’s time to find ways to save our natural hair during the heat. Before I cut my hair I too struggled with how to preserve my natural hair from sweating out. One style in particular that complemented me was 2-strand twists. As you will get to know me-I am all about getting the cutest styles with the smallest amount of work. So after washing my hair I would twist it while it was still damp. If your hair begins to dry out while twisting simply spray water on it to get the moisture back in it. The beauty of 2-strand twist is the versatility of having 2 different hairstyles. You can keep the twist in for 1 week then rock the crinkle/fro look for another week.
Most African Americans have dry hair whereas; Caucasians have oily hair. This explains why they need to wash their hair multiple times throughout the week. Our hair being the blessing that it is, we do not have to wash our hair every week but we do need to keep it moisturized. For example, putting grease, oil sheen, and moisturizers in our hair on a weekly basis helps it to grow, remain healthy and shine. While you are protecting it from the sun-remember to nurture it as well.

For those who may not like the 2-strand twist some other styles are:
Senegalese/ Kinky Twist
Styles to avoid every day are buns. Even though buns are most convenient for natural styles it wears and tears on your hair. The pressure of the bun breaks off your hair slowly which leads to breakage. Save your bun for those days when you do not have much time to do your hair at night or in the morning.
