Doing your hair every day can be a hassle and damaging to your hair as well. Sometimes in the end, it is best to embrace your natural hair. It is possible to tame that gorgeous hair without too much product or heat. Let your best self (or in this case your hair) shine. There are so many cute and natural hairstyles that don’t need any heat or trauma. Here are some tips, tricks, and inspiration from us so you can rock your own natural hair!
Take Care of Your Natural Hair
The key to gorgeous, natural hair? Taking care of it of course. The products we use to take care of hair are so important. Always use a product that works well with your hair whether it is curly, short, long, or straight. Trims are important as well, getting rid of dead ends that are weighing you down and to eliminate frizz.
When it comes to washing your hair, do it three times a week at max. Over-washing can cause your hair to be stripped of oils. Your hair’s natural oils are what help it grow and remain healthy. In addition, shampoo your scalp, not your ends. As you rinse your hair, the shampoo will run down to your ends. Scrubbing the ends of your hair can actually cause it to break more easily.
Use Dry Shampoo for Natural Hair
The next thing you should do is invest in a good dry shampoo. Trust us, this will be your best friend. Dry shampoo is great for second and third day hair. You can fool everyone into thinking your hair is only on its first day. Plus, dry shampoo is super easy to use. All you have to do is spray some in your hair and you’re good to go! It is a great investment for ladies who are always on-the-go. Throw the dry shampoo in your bag for touch ups throughout the day if necessary. To maintain those gorgeous natural locks, stay far away from heat. Sorry ladies, that means no flat iron or curling iron. Blow-drying is okay, but keep it at a bare minimum. When using a blow dryer, hold it far from your hair. Heat is known to dry out hair, which causes more breakage.
Heatless Hairstyles for Natural Hair
There are so many easy heatless hairstyles that make your natural hair look amazing. Ponytails and braids are easy to do and look good with any outfit. Pull out a few pieces in the front to make it look a little messy yet cute. If you’re having a bad hair day, throw your hair in a low bun for a sophisticated yet easy look. Or better yet, throw on a cute hat and no one will know. The best part is these heatless styles won’t damage your hair at all!
Ladies, it’s time to embrace your natural hair. Remember, it all begins with good maintenance. Natural hair should be shown-off because there are so many people who wish they had your gorgeous hair.
