Hey ladies, before I decided to wear my hair Natural I already new exactly what style I wanted to rock.  I totally had  a idea of what would work best for me in the way of time & my schedule.  That lead me to " The wash n go " style.  I loooove big hair, with a semi curly kinky Afro touch,  very much like what's pictured above.  Already, having a idea of the texture of my natural hair I knew this natural style would be a success, and I was right!  here I 've posted some tips or ideas that may help you along the way of hair styling.

what is your lifestyle?

When deciding on a natural hairstyle the first thing you will need to consider is what type of lifestyle do you lead, is it an active one. Time will be an issue so you must pick a natural hairstyle that will be easy to maintain. Quick and easy low maintenance natural hairstyles that will not require lots of your time is going to be your most important priority

Short natural hairstyles or long natural hairstyles

Next you will have to ask yourself if you want to wear a curly short hairstyle or a long wavy hairstyle, longer hairstyles will take less care and up keep compared to a shorter hairstyle, short hair requires constant trims to make it look neat and stylish. Also some short hairstyles go out of fashion and may give you an out of date look.

Wash and go natural hairstyles

Some of the benefits of going natural is the ease of wash and go with the right conditioners and gels you can easily get ready each morning without a lot of fuss. First it will take a 5 min or less routine of wetting hair then adding gel or conditioner and then styling hair. You can let your hair air dry or use a hair dryer with a attached diffuser

Natural locs hairstyles or natural braid hairstyles

Some are choosing to wear locs and get them done by a natural hair specialist who is a consultant for those who want to wear locs. The process requires that the hair is locked together as the hair meshes and dreads together, as the hair grows it will continue to loc together until the hair is permanently in this style, if you decide to remove the locs sometimes it will require for them to be cut out. If you do not want such a permanent commitment you could go for cornrows, micro braids or individual braided hairstyles that can come in various lengths from chin length, shoulder length or longer, these are popular styles for summer as well as it is a low maintenance hairstyle.

Remember ladies, it's very important to do what works best for you & your hair type.  There are many natural hair styles that are worn that rock.  However, depending on the texture of your hair it may not work out as shown on someone else's hair.  This is why it's very important that we must learn about our hair type and texture.  That way we can properly attend to our hair needs , with less disappointments.
