black curly hair cuts

There are so many techniques for hair styles today. long,short, in braids, or with a weave, your hair has its own unique styles, and it’s your greatest accessory. The best black hairstyles are designed to take advantage of black hair’s unique characteristics. Black hair is more fragile than most, requiring tender, loving care. The follicles and hair shaft are tightly curved, creating a naturally curly or kinky texture. With less oil production, black hair also tends to become dry and easily knotted.

Black Hairstyle Tips

1. Start by shampooing and conditioning your hair and then saturate it with a high quality hair setting lotion.
2. Part you hair into 1/4 to 1/2 inch sections and place end papers on the ends of your hair.
3. Roll your hair onto each straw and then secure them using hair pins.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 until you have completed your entire head.
5. Dry your hair under a hair dryer.
6. Remove the straws and separate each curl using your fingers.

In a straw set, you use drinking straws or small perm rollers to wrap your hair in ringlets. Cornrow braiding, glues used to apply extensions, use of hair relaxers and other popular services may lead to hair and scalp problems. For women who favor Afros for a natural look, use of a pick to lift hair at its bushiest spots can cause damage....

Some stylists use the term natural hair to refer only to Afros, others use the term for any hair style without chemical treatment, including Afros, updos and all types of braids. Women who regularly use a hot comb to relax their hair may suffer progressive, irreversible hair loss, beginning at the crown and spreading across the entire head.

The different types of braided black hair styles available are nearly limitless. Cornrows are small, tight plaits, close to the scalp; locks or locs are small coils that grow into larger twisted coils. Twists are similar: groups of hair strands are twisted into soft plaits that drape. A lubricant, such as Aveda Humectant Pomade, is usually used for the twist.

Make sure you find someone you trust and that they understand the style you are going for. Hot curlers, hot combs, and color can all damage your hair and using more than one of these can make the problems exponentially worse. Since straightening your hair removes elasticity from the hair shafts, the straighter your hair is, the more fragile it will become.
