Natural Curly Hairstyles

Maintaining a natural hairstyle is the best way to keep your hair healthy both now and in the future.  This is because if you use chemical products to relax your hair, peroxide and ammonia to dye it, or put a lot of tension on through braids or dreadlocks you will stand to lose a lot of your hair later in life.  However, if you treat your hair well it will continue to treat you well for years to come.  That is why, if you happen to have naturally curly hair, you should try some of the natural curly hairstyles that are making other black women on the red carpet and the runway looking gorgeous.

Most black hair is naturally curly.  If your curls are very small and tight, it might be labeled kinky.  Similarly, if your curls are very relaxed and large you might be tempted to call your hair wavy.  Regardless of the label, naturally curly hair can be very beautiful.  It looks good at all lengths: short, medium, and long.  This means that you have the luxury of choosing the right hair length for your face shape.

Once you decide how long or short you want your curly hair to be, you need to set about maintaining.  Having beautiful, curly hair doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune on hair care products.  Instead you just have to make sure that you maintain the natural beauty of your hair.  The first thing to do is to keep it hydrated.  You should do an oil massage once a day.  Fill the palm of your hand with a quarter sized drop of oil and rub it down into your scalp.  When your entire scalp is coated, you can finger comb the oils down into your hair.  You can also use a mixture of egg and peanut butter on your hair once a week before doing a deep cleaning shampoo.  You just need to make sure that your hair stays hydrated.

When you go about styling your naturally curly hair, you don’t want to use too much heat, or it can get frizzy.  Lightly enhance your curls with a curling iron and hold them in place with a gel or wax.  A light coat of hairspray should keep the frizziness down all day and into the night.  Natural curly hairstyles not only look great, but they are also easier than you might imagine.
