Black hair has an advantage that all non African hair people crave: natural curls. African hair has amazing natural curls that cannot be achieved by any means. Or if a similar effect is achieved, it will not last, that is for sure. Many possessors of African hair have gotten into the habit of straightening the hair to keep up with hair trends, no matter if this is done for short hair or for long hair.
But the most beautiful way to style black hair is to just leave its natural curls. If you have really tight curls you should go for an afro cut. For this you will need your hair to be shorter. The big advantage of the afro cut is that it leaves the face free and accentuates the lovely bone structure of women with black hair. This type of hair will draw attention to the facial features, amazing dark eyes and big lips these women are blessed with. If you have looser curls, your hair looks way better if it goes down, with a medium length or a longer hair, either way, your hair will look amazing. What you have to know is that regular use of hair straighteners or chemical relaxers women use to get rid of their natural curls will, in time, damage the hair. The first step is that the hair will lose shine. Black hair has a lot of natural shine due to the pigment of this type of hair and loss of this shine is a crime in our opinion. The second step is that the hair will lose its curls. It will not become straight but rather saggy and lifeless, looking burnt and unhealthy. The final step is that this hair will fall out which is the most awful effect of the process of straightening the hair. The desired thing is to just become adjusted to your natural curly hair because, apart from being a lovely hairstyle, there are a lot of women out there who pay good money and suffer hair damage to achieve that natural curl look. However, you have to take care of your hair too. Avoid using heat to dry the hair. This will not only dry out your hair, but will make the curls suffer too. Natural drying of the hair will make the curls more defined and the hair shinier. Also, keep your hair clean and hydrated to achieve the best looking curls. And most important, keep up with regular trims. This is a law for any type of hair that ensures that the hair is healthy from root to tip.
