10 Happiest Nappy Hairstyles for The Positive Souls

Nappy hair is back in style. Afro-textured hair was once reviled, but it now plays an important part in African history and culture.

Many African women are now keen to celebrate their nappy natural hair type. One of the best things about nappy hair is that there are loads of unusual styles that other women just can’t wear.


Unique Nappy Hairstyles to Boost Yourself

Nappy hairstyles need special hair care products, or else they can end up looking tired. Afro-textured hair can get dry very quickly, so moisture protection products are essential. These will stop your style from getting very brittle.

A special Afro comb can stop your hair from getting tangled and knotty. Some people also use light relaxant products on their hair to make it more flexible. Be careful if you choose to apply any relaxant products to your hair because some of them can be very harsh and damaging.
