Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
Baby hairs are often seen as an inconvenience rather than an opportunity to take your natural hairstyle to the next level. The truth is, with the right styling products and tools on hand, these wispy strands can help you stand out with minimal effort on your part. Here are some styles for natural hair.
Think creative spirals and cute curls – it’s so easy to style your baby hairs into something eye-catching. Just use a flake-free gel to slick them down and then work with a comb to move them into place. This can be a subtle addition to your hairstyle, or you can take it to the extreme and turn it into the main attraction. If you’d like to go the whole hog, you can use a bit of your long hair in conjunction with your baby hairs to mould beautiful waves and curls along your forehead and down the sides of your face.
This African hairstyle is a sure-fire way to make a statement, so you might want to reserve it for a big night out rather than attempting to pull it off at work. Pair the look with a shimmery lip gloss, and you’re good to go!
Soft, straight baby hairs look gorgeous when the rest of your hair is worn in a messy, voluminous bun or a high ponytail. They’ll help to frame your face and soften your look. The same applies to short hairstyles where you don’t want to steer the focus away from your already fabulous ‘do.
If you want a more polished look when it comes to natural black hair styling, use an edge-taming product, like the anti-breakage Mizani Edge Taming Gel, to add some sleekness. This product protects baby hairs from heat damage and helps to keep them smooth.
L'Oréal Professionnel Educator and Stylist, Sonica de Klerk, offers her expert input on the topic: “Baby hair is mainly determined by genetics and the hair follicle. They rarely grow out, so grab a great edge tamer and slay the baby hairs, be creative and embrace them.”
Make the most of your baby hairs – with a bit of practice. It’s sure to become child’s play! Need a little help getting started? Visit your nearest salon for some sound advice.
