I put my hands up, I am indeed boring when it comes to styling my hair!
Over the years my sisters and hubby have commented on how often I recycle the same hairstyles. Each and every time they start with their remarks I jump straight into defence mode and give them the usual low manipulation and protective styling excuse. ‘If I change my hair too often it will break’, ‘my scalp is too sensitive for multiple hairstyles’, ‘I’m protective styling’… the list goes on.
Well I realised last week, after 4 weeks of rocking straight (blowdried) natural hair, that they were right! How is it that I had worn one hairstyle for 4 weeks without switching it up once? You’d think a top knot bun was the only hairstyle known to man!
Unfortunately this discovery came a week too late, because I’ve since washed my hair and returned back to my curls and kinks. Nevertheless I’m pretty sure there are others out there craving for some hairspiration for those special occasions when they blow dry or straighten their natural hair. So without further a do here are 5 out of many ways to style straight natural hair:
