Most of the women of color have had their own experiences of struggling with their Afro hair. This has encouraged them to make their move of having their hair relaxed and straightened out more willingly than embracing their natural curls.
The natural curls have this fantastic look, and often have a cool and funky edge. In spite of this to be able to make most out of the Afro hair, it is very vital to treat the natural curls properly. The main and most typical dilemma that the women of color will be facing with their Afro hair is the frizzies. To be able to tame the frizzies, treat your natural curls well and using some hair moisturizer whilst your hair is still damp.
If your hair is thick, then you had better opt for creams instead, and if your have finer frizzy hair, a moisturizing lotion will be fine. You also have to keep in mind that you have to stay away from any heavy and sticky products such as waxes because they will dry your hair out and encourage more frizzes.
Aside from avoiding waxes, you have to avoid any product that contains even the smallest, tiniest microscopic level of alcohol that is every so often found in hairspray.
Apart from treating your hair well, having a good hairstyle that will fix your natural curls is another good option.
I have to applaud a woman of color who has short hair and openly embraces their natural curls, obtaining a chic and carefree outcome with their short hair. You can wear your short hairstyles straight along with rows of flawlessly lined small curls that are done weekly by your hairdresser or at a wash-and-go Afro.
Short hair can give you that more carefree and classic look, and not just that, but it will also highlight most of your features. You can always have a talk with your stylist and ask for his or her opinion on what will complement the shape of your face.
Braiding is also a hairstyle that will be perfect for women of color. By using the hair extensions, the short hair becomes longer and the thin hair becomes thicker. You have the preference of choosing the classic businesslike braid style that is braided together with the ends being twisted into a bun at the nape of the neck. However, you have to be careful still, is the hair is braided too tight it will result in thinning of the hair and may even cause bald spots.
Wearing your natural hairstyle will make you feel more untroubled about yourself and your do. What you need to do with your natural hairstyle is to do a two stand twist every after washing your hair and then put conditioner on the twists and let them be for a few days. It will be a big help for you when in accounts of saving more money that would or else be spent for your hairdresser every month.
However, if you really want to straighten up your hair then that is fine, but if you are more happy and comfortable with your natural curls then why not try these hairstyles for women of color to be of help.
