If you have tried braid/twist outs without getting definition this rainy season, don’t try harder because the moisture in the air won't let you get the desired results. The best advice I can give naturals this season is: EMBRACE YOUR HAIR…frizz, shrinkage and all.
Find products that will give you soft manageable hair, and try out simple styles instead of fighting your hair and the weather.
Below are some of the styles I enjoy wearing during the rainy season:
You could also try updo's like the one I'm doing on the lady's medium length, undefined Fro. To style my frizzy fro, I took down my braids, applied some Olive Oil and let the humid Lagos weather do the rest:)
I love this style because my hair looks fuller and I can style the twists in a number a ways.
My new twists
I thought my loose twists were the best:(...click on link to see Miss Fizz's full and beautiful twists **hair envy**
These Chunky Braids are so easy to maintain!
This style lasts for 2-3 weeks.
Finally, don’t forget how terrific the African threading technique is in keeping your hair from getting matted and unmanageable.
My hair was super coily and that usually leads to knots and tears
So I used the thread on the ends and...
voila...better behaved ends:)
The threads stretched out my coils, making styling easy. Please excuse the pins...they weren't supposed to show:)
Using this technique, you could even get your hair to look as stretched as Wakeema’s hair in the picture below
