Considered a "TWA" Teenie Weenie Afro. This is a fairly low maintenance style for women sporting their natural hair! The most important step in maintaining this style is proper moisturizing and hair trimming to reduce split ends and to maintain desired hairstyle shape.
Applying a satin bonnet or scarf is recommended before bedtime. Due to the low maintenance factor, not much styling is necessary for daily care. A light moisturizer or hair oil can be applied, then a hair pic can be used to gently loosen the "TWA" to achieve the desired effect..
"The Big Chop" This is a style often seen after a woman has decided to sport her natural hair, and retire any form of chemical processing. Hence "The Big Chop" is in reference to cutting off all processed portions of the hair and leaving only the natural unprocessed hair. This is also considered a low maintenance hairstyle.
A satin bonnet or scarf at nighttime is recommended. Proper moisturizing, and hair trimming to maintain the desired shape for this style is required.
This model is sporting a very popular protective hairstyle choice! "Box Braids" This look is achieved by braiding/attaching extensions to the natural hair! This is an extremely low maintenance style because after the extensions are in place all that's required is proper oiling of the exposed parts of the scalp, and the wearing of a trusty satin bonnet or scarf at bedtime. A good holding/ slicking gel can be applied as needed to smooth hair at the hairline.
