HAIR THAT MATCHES YOUR FACE:
What good is a beautiful face if your hair is not equally beautiful? African women naturally have very thick curly hair, and to keep that kind of hair in good health, you have to make sure it doesn’t get brittle and dry. If you have such hair, then do not use a hairbrush or a fine toothed comb; both will destroy your hair. Whenever you go to comb your natural curly hair, use a wide-tooth comb, make sure your hair is moist with water and make sure you have already applied some hair grease and or moisturiser. Start combing from the tips of our hair and work your way up to the roots. Most of the time, curly hair grows just as fast as anyone else’s hair; you just have to comb it gently and keep it moist if you want to see it grow any longer than shoulder length.
One style to consider for natural black curly hair is a short afro. You can get a short afro by cutting your hair with electric clippers fitted with size two, size three or size four guards. If you are not sure which length will look best on you, use size four guards first, and if you think you would look better with a slightly shorter afro, cut your hair again with the size three guards and see if you like it. You can colour or highlight short afros, but make sure you choose a colour that complements your skin tone. Just make sure you comb your hair before you begin cutting it. You can also try braids or cornrows; they can give you a breathtakingly beautiful look. Once your hair is long enough, you can try the always-fashionable ponytail.
