Easy Natural Hairstyles for Busy Black Girls
09 March 2018
Every head of hair needs a breather from harsh treatments and styling every once in a while. In fact, it’s essential
if you want to keep your curls and scalp healthy, keep your hairline looking great, and achieve the growth you’ll
need to explore the many sizzling styles out there you’re just dying to try.
But that doesn’t mean you’ll have to look plain and boring while in your natural state. There’s no
need to re-invent the wheel here – all you need is a little inspiration. If you keep your hair in tip-top shape
and perfect health, a simple, quick, natural hairstyle can grab just as much attention as the priciest weave.
Rocky Bukasa, Mizani education developer, explains: “Keeping your hair healthy means putting a proper hair care
routine in place and buying products that will attend your specific needs. Use gentle shampoos and take advantage
of protein and moisture treatments like Mizani’s Strength Fusion™ Post Chemical Treatment for a shiny,
Here are a few quick and simple styles to keep you looking fresh and on-trend with natural hair.
Flirty Forehead Pieces
Girls with tight curls love this look, and we’re seeing more and more of it gracing the Red Carpet lately. Tease
out your curls for a defined, casually messy look, then style a few short sections forward to mimic the look of full
bangs, without the commitment of getting a fringe chop.
Use a product like
Supreme Oil Sulfate Free Moisturizing Shampoo to maximise bounce, shine, and definition.
There’s no need to break out the clippers to get that futuristic and sleek undercut look. Shaved sides, with or
without dyes, stripes and creative fades, are all the rage – and the trend is only heating up. A Fauxhawk achieves
the same look without the sacrifice.
Use a smoothing brush to sweep the back and side sections upwards, with the bulk of your hair sitting naturally up top.
This style is easier than it looks, but it will certainly require quite a few hairpins to make it hold. A smoothing
treatment like Dark and Lovely’s Au Naturale Afro-Moisturizing Butter or Au Naturale Plaiting Pudding Cream
will help with manageability and shine, and we’d also recommend Mizani’s HD Shyne from the finish and
polish styling collection for extra staying power.
Simultaneously super-easy, completely natural and utterly elegant, the Pineapple screams beauty and practicality –
and it’s fast becoming one of our favourite no-fuss styles.
Simply pull your locks toward the crown of your head, smoothing and pinning as needed while you do. Once firmly in place,
let your hair splay naturally and playfully outward, before finishing with a product like Mizani’s
Lightweight Texture Finishing spray to keep everything in place.
So, there you have it. Three styles that will take you from home, to the office, to a night on the town with no pain,
no maintenance and no wasted time. Embrace your natural curls, find some inspiration, and the sky’s the limit
– no weave necessary.
