3 Quick & Easy Natural Styles (From Real Women)

By Ayren Jackson-Cannady, ayrenjacksoncannady.com
 
In a hair rut with no clue about how to style your transitioning locks today…or tomorrow? Take a cue from these naturalistas whose go-to ’dos, when they’ve hit a strand slump, are easy and compliment-worthy.

Elayna Cannon, Greenville, NC
The Style:Girly Fro
How-To:
Step 1- After co-washing (Try Hair Milk Cleansing Conditioner), I wring my hair out in the shower and let it air-dry.
Step 2- Once my hair is mostly dry, I scrunch in a curly cocktail of oil and leave-in conditioner—the combo helps to lock in the moisture—and fluff up my roots a little.
Step 3- Finally, I roll a scarf—whatever matches with what I’m wearing that day—and tie it around my hair.
Why It Works:I’m a busy art student, so I don’t have much time to deal with my hair. Scarves complement my natural look and match my outfits, without damaging my hair. 


Adia Moore, Laurel, MD
The Style:Sleek Bun
How-To:
Step 1- Every day I use a leave-in conditioner because this style looks best on well-moisturized hair. My hair hydrator of choice is Hair Milk Orignial Leave-In Moisturizer, which I only need a dollop of for mega-moisture.
Step 2- I make sure my hair is slightly damp, because it makes brushing it smooth with a paddle brush easier.
Step 3- I create a ponytail at the crown of my head, and then twist my hair around the holder to form a bun. Finally, I secure the updo with an elastic hair band.
Why It Works:This style not only keeps all of my curly hair out of my face, but it is also a surefire way to make my face look slimmer and highlight my cheekbones.












Genaya Taylor, Fredericksburg, VA
The Style:Side Braid With a Twist
How-To:
Step 1- I start by applying a leave-in conditioner from roots to ends to keep my hair smooth.
Step 2- After creating a side part, I braid my bangs behind my ear and secure the end with a rubber band.
Step 3- Next, I start to create the main braid (that goes over my shoulder). I start the braid as high as possible so it lasts longer. Secure the end with an elastic.
Step 4-Finally, take the bang braid and secure it to the perimeter of your head with bobby pins.
Why It Works:I love braiding my hair to disguise the fact that I currently have two textures of hair—the ends are still relaxed.
