Top reasons to wig it this summer
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
You’re all perfectly groomed for a beautiful summer day. But what on earth are you going to do with your hair?
Girl, we hear you. Kinky, curly hair has a life of its own. Some days it's amazing. On others, it's just so hard to manage, especially if you've stopped relaxing and are transitioning to natural hair. You want hair that is easy to maintain yourself, looks great and offers protection against breakage and damage. To help you out, we've rounded up our favourite easy hairstyles for natural hair.
When it comes to hassle-free natural hairstyles, braids win hands down. You may have to sit for a few hours at the salon, but once done, braided hairstyles are literally wake up and go! Long swinging braids, or short edgy cornrows… the choice is yours. Just be sure that the braids aren’t pulled too tight, to avoid stretching and breaking your natural hair.
This is a fun hairstyle for medium to long hair. Use the tail of a fine-tooth comb to separate your hair into symmetrical sections of 3 to 8 cm. Spritz each section with nourishing Mizani 25 Miracle Milk. This leave-in conditioning lotion contains xylose and coconut oil to strengthen, hydrate, and smooth frizzy curls. Twist and coil each section into a knot. Secure with a bobby pin or mini butterfly clip. Repeat for all sections.
This is one of the easiest natural afro hairstyles for medium to long hair. Pull your hair up into a high ponytail and secure with a hairband. Gently twist long hair into a loose bun and secure with bobby pins. For shorter hair, add a hairpiece to create the illusion of a full, fluffy bun. Smooth any flyaway hairs with a spray of multi-use Mizani 25 Miracle Milk.
A fabric bandanna is your best friend if you have short natural hair. It creates structure in the front and lets you leave the back a little messy. Spray your hair with Mizani 25 Miracle Milk to prime it, and then use your fingers to twist and define your natural curls and create volume. A bandanna is also useful to cover roots if your box braids are growing out.Of course, if you’re transitioning to natural hair or growing your tresses, nothing beats a good haircut. Visit your salon every 5 to 8 weeks for a trim and to consult your stylist about haircare treatments best suited to you.
