So on this post I’m going to share some insights on styling your natural hair.
My hair texture (4c) has such an advantage with styling because it’s really thick &volumptuos and the coarseness allows the style to stick .
Most African hair is of this type but if your hair is soft , fear not everything still works .
I love styling my hair in finger coils when I really don’t want to touch my hair over the week , as it lasts me a week or even more if you take care of it.
This is how to achieve the coils :
- Once you wet your hair/ from washing , take your hair strand by strand , with the thickness of your choice (small is better to achieve long lasting coils )and apply oil to your scalp and using moisturiser or leave in conditioner , take the strand of hair from the root and twirl your finger till the end of the hair . Once you reach the end of the hair , twist the end with your finger to secure the ends.
- I was looking to secure some bangs so at the front I finger coiled my hair toward my forehead after sectioning the portion which I wanted as a bangs .
- Do step one repeatedly until you complete your entire head.
- Once that is done , you can tie your hair in a scarf , go to bed and prepare for the next day.
- Undo the scarf then your good to go! It’s that simple .
If you prefer a Mohawk kind of look you can use bobby pins to pin the sides of your hair .
This is literally my go to when I’m really not in the mood to do much with my hair .
To keep the coils ,always tie a satin scarf on your head before bed , oil your hair in intervals of two days so as to keep it glowing.
The coils are a little rusty but it’s because they were on for over two weeks .
I hope you enjoyed this post, do stay tuned for more , but most importantly,stay safe!
