Natural Hairstyles

I love having natural hair--meaning, I love not using chemicals in it to straighten it or change its texture. I'm not saying that doing those things is wrong, all I'm saying is that natural hair just works better for me.  Believe me, I know it's not for everyone.  I wasn't even sure it was right for me for a little while.  In fact, it took a few months for me to fully embrace the natural state of my hair in all its puffy glory. 

Here's a picture of me with my brother.  I was 5 with a super full head of natural hair.


In the past, I shared some brief snippets from the history of my hair in a couple of posts (here & here) and you can see a few more pictures of me over the years wearing different hairstyles.  Well, I've been thinking about trying out some new natural hairstyles or even different ways to go about getting the same looks in different ways.

Here are some styles that I'm really loving right now:
 
Maybe one day, I'll just let loose and let my hair fly free like this--one day...

 Oh, this styles is so cute.  I love it!

 My husband loves when I wear cornrows and they're so easy to manage.

Goodness, there are so many different styles to choose from, but I'll start with these.  I'm going to be bold and try to style and wear my hair like the top two pictures at some point over the next few weeks.  I'll take pictures to share with you all.  And, I'll bust out the braids also--even though it's not summertime and I consider this look my summertime hairstyle.  I can't do them on my own, but I know someone who does them very well.

Does anyone else out there wear their hair natural?  How are you styling it these days?

  1. Haha! My hair is uber-natural. No product, no color treatment ... just dark blonde with quite a bit of gray streaking through it, and straight. Board straight...so straight it *looks* like I used a straightener on it. Can't wait to see pics as you try out different styles! :)

  3. I would say that my hair is semi-natural. I use a mild relaxer two or three times a year. After washing, it looks pretty much like that first pic. I usually blow it out, but I've worn it natural too. I've never done braids, but they would probably look great on you.

  4. I can't wait to see your hair! One of my best friends went natural a few years ago and every time I see her, she's rocking a different style. She does locks a lot, which look awesome on her. Make sure you post some pix!
