Got Short-Medium Length 4-Type Natural Hair? This Is A Great DIY Hairstyle.

Simple yet so elegant

It really doesn’t matter what your hair type or texture is, if you’re in the process of growing your hair out, that stage between trying to get it to go from right above your ears to past your chin can be some of the most grueling time on the planet. I know this for a fact because I’ve been there — more times than I would care to count.

As a Black woman with natural hair, sometimes a protective style or a braid-out or twist-out is the route to take. But even those can get boring after a while. Thankfully, there are people like @adannamadueke who have other awesome options to consider.

It’s kind of life a modified hair crown. Love it.

OK, a few tips if you want to try this at home:

· Deep condition your hair and then apply some thermal heat protectant, so that you can blow your hair out first. That will give your tresses more “stretch” which gives you more length to play with if your hair is on the shorter side.

· If you need to detangle your hair, go with a detangling brush rather than a comb to reduce breakage. One of my favorites is EZ Guide Detangling Brush by Red by Kiss.

· Avoid applying a lot of product because you don’t want this look to have any flaking or irritate your scalp to where you’re going to constantly have your hands in it; edge control (along your sides and nape) really should be all that you need.

· Finish it off with a bit of oil sheen for shine and manageability.

· Wrap your hair up every night and this look can easily last you throughout the week.

· Also, don’t hesitate to have fun with some barrettes or hair pins. This is a simple look that still can be “played up” in some many ways.

· Finally, don’t stick to ONLY this look. Hair is more prone to breakage if it’s kept in the same style for weeks on end.

If you apply all of these tips, you can have a beautiful option to get you through until your hair reaches the length that you want. Enjoy!
