Natural hairstyles are key in your natural hair journey. I have found on many occasions that I would get very frustrated with my natural hair, but a good natural hairstyle can make you feel good about your decision to be natural. So I have created this page for you to view all of my natural hairstyles. What is your favorite or go to natural hairstyle?
Black hairstyles are a big part of our culture. Hairstyles for natural hair are so versatile. Our hair seems to be able to do anything. We can decide one day to wear our natural hair straight and the next day do a huge afro. Other cultures want to touch our hair because our natural hair is so unique.
Black women hairstyles have evolved over the decades from finger waves, Jeri curls, relaxers, to natural hair and everything else in-between. We can weave it up, braid it up, and slick it back.
Now as black women are becoming more aware of the damaging effects of relaxers we are realizing that natural hair is the best alternative for our hair care and overall physical health. I’m not sure how you felt when you watch Chris Rock’s ‘Good Hair’, but I knew I was a changed woman. At the time I saw the film I was already natural but mostly because I was curious about my natural hair texture and how long I could grow my hair. That filmed opened my eyes to relaxers’ dangerous long term effects. I mean come on…we all know relaxers are not good for your health. Something that burns your skin and permanently straighten even the kinkiest of natural hair textures on a permanent basis can only be chemically driven. And in a world of chemical modifications to our food, beauty products, and even the air we breathe; we need to make changes and get back to natural and the purity of it all.
Natural hairstyles help keep you on track!
When I look in the mirror and say to myself, “What am I going to do with this”. And the thoughts of cutting it all off or relaxing it straight starts to creep in. Things can start to feel kind of hopeless. I’m not sure if you have those moments but I certainly do every now and then. Let’s face it as our natural hair gets longer it can be a bit overwhelming. So I thought that I can make it easier on all of us women and men out there who are having that, “what am I going to do with this” type of day. On this page you will find all of my Natural hairstyles to date and links to videos to teach you how to do them. Please let me know if there is a natural hairstyle that you have trouble with that you would like for me to do.
