Natural Hairstyles Top 10 List for July 2016: Perm Free Perfection

celebratenappyhairandpower_350x387It would’ve been “cute” to do a Top 10 Hairstyles for 4th of July List, but with everything that’s going on in Black America, I’m having a hard time getting excited anymore about fireworks, barbecue, and volleyball games. My brothers are dying in the streets without any explanation or justice and I am hurting. Black people all over the country are hurting.


So, my list is not a Top 10 of Cute July 4th Natural Hairstyles. Sorry. But not sorry.

If it helps, just remember, Black  people were still slaves AFTER the Declaration of Independence was signed, so don’t think I’m bitter. Just aware. 

My Natural Hairstyles Top 10 List for July 2016 celebrates  black women who are owning the beauty of their perm-free natural hairstyles even during this long hot summer.

I love the new natural hairstyles I spotted so much I’m including ten bonus hairstyles that I just couldn’t ignore. They’re just too gorgeous to sleep on this month.

Enjoy the Top 10 List for July 2016, and brothers and sisters, and please stay aware.

Oh yeah. I didn’t forget the Bonus Natural Hairstyles that were too good to omit. I just couldn’t. I love them all!


Natural Hairstyles Top 10 List for June 2016: Get Ready for Summer

I’m rocking a very close cut TWA this summer so I can spend more time on life and less on my hair.

As part of my Love My Natural Hair – Love My Natural Life Movement, I have selected the Top 10 Natural Hairstyles for June 2016 that make it possible for Naturalistas to spend more time enjoying life this summer and less on their hair.

Yeah, if you rock these natural hairstyles this summer, you’ll still have to spend a little time loving on your beautiful coils and coils each day – you still have to keep your hair cleaned, moisturized and oiled – but you won’t have to do as much manipulation to style your natural hair. And just so you know WHY I’ve taken this direction, here’s a pic of my current closely cropped TWA. Because of this hairstyle, I’m able to get my hair out the way in SEVEN minutes in the morning. You can’t beat it. You can get outside – looking amazing – and enjoy all this beautiful sunshine.

All of these natural styles are not short cuts and TWA’s – the top 5 are – but all of them are about easy maintenance.

Enjoy! And as usual, if you find one that you’re planning to rock, post a link to your hairstyle, so you can inspire others. . and so I can tell you how amazing you look. [And extra bonus.]
