There are many different ways to style natural black hair.  However, many of these ways can involve tugging, pulling, and even using heat or chemicals on your hair.  As you probably already know, your hair is very sensitive and can react very badly to too much abuse.  It might get dry, brittle, break off, or become so frizzy you feel that there is nothing that you can do about it.  However, there is something that you can do to style your hair in a way that is both attractive and also good for your hair.  In fact, this hairstyle might actually help your hair to become healthier overall.  Say hello to the black hairstyles straw set.

In many ways a straw set is just what it sounds like, a way to set your hair with straws.  We’re not talking about the kind of straw that you find in a barn, but instead large drinking straws.  It is both healthy and economical to set your hair this way.  Below are a list of the steps for your to follow to achieve a good straw set.

First of all, you need to wash your hair.  Use a gentle shampoo and a hard working conditioner.  You want to keep as much moisture in your head as possible during the wash.  When you are done, lightly work some moisturizer into your hair.  You can literally use the same type of lotion you use on your hands.  Just make sure there is no alcohol in the lotion.  Then you need to spray setting lotion in your hair.  You’ll find this at any beauty supply store.  The more setting lotion you use, the tighter your curls will be.  Then gently work your hair into sections.  Once you have your small sections, roll each section up around a large sized drinking straw.  You can cut these straws into thirds or fourths so that they will be easier to roll.  Then you need to pin them into place.  Allow your hair to dry with the straws in.  When you unroll your hair, lightly spray your entire head with hairspray.  When you sleep at night you can preserve your style by wrapping it in a cloth.

The black hairstyles straw set should last for four or five days if properly maintained.  It is a great way to look good with natural hair that also helps your hair to stay healthy.
