This comment was taken from a post on my facebook page (Malibu Beauty)——–> “….I find that alot of videos on the net are for white women or women with long voluminous naturally straight hair. Not every body fits into those categories (i.e. me) so any kind of guide would be a great help :)”
Looking good is definately not easy. Especially for black women because we are blessed with very unique hair. We are so talented and diverse that we can switch hair looks with every season for varied reasons, that is good and bad though, because not everyone can live in the salon, and a black women’s hair is definately complex. I mean a whole movie was dedicated to the black woman and her hair. So what i’m gonna do here is give a style & care guide for the black woman, to try and make it easy to have a good hair day, no matter what type of hair you have.
Before you start this guide, you must know your hair type & embrace it, coarse, normal, medium, fine, etc.
Lets start with natural hair (afro kinky hair) i.e// unprocessed (no relaxer, texturiser)
First thing , natural hair is very individual, so know your texture to choose the right products. Natural Hair needs moisture, hydration. To care and style you need the right tools, wide tooth comb, oil moisturiser(cream based), scalp oil, Leave in conditioner, detangling shampoo and a satin bonnet to sleep in. IN MY WORLD NO BLACK WOMAN GOES TO SLEEP ON A COTTON PILLOW! NONE!! Natural hair women can choose to loc, colour or cornrow & twist and be just as trendy
Quick Style : Two strand Twists
after shampooing & misting in the leave in conditioner, use locking gel & setting foam to twist hair, then allow to dry, whether by air or hooded dryer. when dry unravel twist with finger and a silicone based gloss serum to complete. this is the look u should get, can be worn twisted or funky when unraveled
