Cute Curly Fro Micro Braids-Spring Protective Style. 

Products used: http://naturaloasisproducts.com/essential-balms/
I get a lot of Naturals concerned about how to make their perm rod set last longer. How to create a natural hair roller set that will last longer than a few days. This technique will allow you to protect your hair and style it at the same time. This style can last for up to 1-3 months depending on hair type and texture. When done correctly they are easily taken down with a denman brush and a good slip conditioner brushing the ends and working up. The braids should be done loosely, to make take down easy. A few test braids should be done to be sure this style is compatilbe with your hair type. 

Journey To Natural Hair...

A Natural Hair Journey & Transition Story 

Last spring I began helping an amazing young lady transition to her natural hair texture. Having always had a healthy head of hair, though relaxed, she-and I, were a bit apprehensive about cutting all of her relaxed hair at once. Since her hair had become severely damaged after enrolling in a major University and enduring all the stress that comes along with it, her hair began to suffer. Giving it a great deal of thought she decided to make the transition. This video will showcase her transition and the final look we chose to help protect her beautiful new natural tresses.

It is highly recommended that you test your hair before attempting this style to be sure it is compatible with your hair type, texture and condition.

VIDEO PHASE 1: THE PARTIAL BIG CHOP The video below shows how her hair was cut in a partial big chop. Then coiled & perm rod set. This allowed her time to become accustomed to working with her natural hair.

 

VIDEO PHASE 2: This video will show a few weeks later when her hair was a tad bit longer and able to be perm rod set all over. This "Cute Curly Fro" is ideal for those who are newly natural.  

 

 

VIDEO PHASE 3: After the final cut to remove the remainder of her relaxed ends. The video below chronicles her 1 year complete transition into her natural and professional journey. After achieving a significant amount of growth, we opted for a style that would allow her to protect her ever growing natural hair and provide her with a low maintenance style. The thumb nail photo is here before pic when her hair was healthy yet relaxed. After the stresses of college and life her healthy hair began to suffer. The video will pick up her journey to natural hair from that point. Enjoy her touching journey!

3 Strand Twist Out

There are times when those of us with naturally tightly coiled or textured hair may want to stretch, elongate and define it. There are many ways to achieve this. Braiding is a tried and generally healthy way to elongate the hair while still maintaining texture. There are new devices being created that also help with stretching or elongating naturally textured hair, but may not curl the hair at the same time.

Why forgo direct heat on naturally dry, kinky hair types?: It is because in order to get the hair completely straight you must disrupt the protein bonds of the hair. The extreme heat needed to straighten the hair will cause these protein bonds to be slightly broken down each time the hair is heat treated. The more often the hair is straightened the more the bonds will be broken down, causing the hair to lose it's natural curl pattern more and more each time the hair is pressed. 

Depending on the hair's texture it may require more aggressive straightening to get the hair as straight and silky as one may desire. The straighter the hair texture is naturally the less heat will be required. This is why some can heat style their hair with minimal heat damage and others experience more damage. The type of process used to straighten the hair will also affect how damaging it will be to the hair. To minimize damage, especially if the hair texture is tighter, more corse and harder to straighten, opt for more indirect ways of straightening, stretching or loosening the hair, such as roller setting. Roller setting will allow you to set the hair in a way that it will straighten naturally as much as it can based on it's natural curl pattern without forcing it to straighten beyond it's natural ability and what is healthy for your particular curl patten and or texture. Heat damage occurs when the hair is forced to straighten far beyond it's natural curl patten using extreme heat and tension. 

Many who have been trying to grow their natural hair have found that the hair only grows to a certain point but never to their desired length. If you are pressing your hair or using heat implements on a regular basis this could be the problem. Also trimming the ends regularly, especially if you are heat treating your hair, is a must. This is because heat treating the hair will cause the ends to split. If these ends are not trimmed they will travel up the hair shaft and cause uneven hair breakage and thinning.

 

If you have made the decision to "grow" natural, learn to accept your hair's natural texture without comparing it to that of others. Learn the options you have for changing and increasing your style options without damaging it with the excessive use of heat..
