Some of us chose to begin our natural hair journey by chopping off our chemically relaxed hair to start afresh, while some of us prefer to keep our natural hair short. Whatever reason you have for wearing your natural hair short, there are several easy and simple styles that you can do to keep your short hair looking fresh. Simple overnight styles include bantu knots and two strand twists. These protective styles can be kept as is or taken out for a nice TWA. For mornings when you are pressed for time, just grab a large elastic hairband and put your hair up in a puff. If you are feeling a bit edgy, grab some braiding hair and try a faux mohawk.
Keeping short hair does not have to be boring, experiment with different styles and find what fits your personal style. To make these simple styles last, don´t forget your must-have accessories and natural products: bobby pins, styling cream, hair gel, spray bottle, boar bristle brush, edge control brush, clip-ins (or any extension) and of course your satin headscarf.
