Ghana Hair Chick's Letters: Change it up!

Hello All! I hope you enjoyed your weekend! Today's post will talk about how to switch your hairstyles to prevent boredom. If you're looking for new ways to change your look then read on!

1. Protective style
In my last post I talked about protective styles. Protective styles aren't just great for growing your hair. They can also help you change your look. If you're bored with your hair styles, try a wig, weave, braids, twists, buns or any other number of the protective styles available to you.

2. Color it up!
Now I know some of you may be scared of color, but there are some pretty good options for hair color out there that will not damage your hair. Just be sure to do your research very well and follow instructions. If you don't want to go the chemical route you can use indigo or henna to color your hair.  Both are natural herbs that will actually make your hair stronger. You may also want to use a clip in hair extension to add color, or just add color to your favorite protective style.

3. Wear it straight
The issue of heat is also a tough one, but done right your hair will not suffer any bad effects. Simply be sure to protect and condition your hair before using heat. Straightening your hair with heat is also guaranteed to changed your look and also give you an idea of your true length. It would also help you to trim your hair well.

4. Get it cut, trimmed or shaped
This is a growing trend in the natural hair community. You can choose to get a hair cut or just shape your hair a particular way. While this is drastic, your hair will grow back eventually and some cuts are simply beautiful!

5. Time to look a bit more traditional?
This one is not for the faint of heart, but you can wear your hair in a traditional African threading or Bantu knots. These are all intricate styles nod can be accessorised with some nice beads. You can try that if you want to and the results are usually fantastic!

  2. I like to accessorise my hair when I am not wearing any protective style, and then make-up and an even skin tone brings out the best of my natural hair... People actually salivate with my hair and various accessories, a couple of colleagues have also BC'd cos they like my style.... Lol!!! ;-)

    1. Hello! That weave is from the Heat Free Hair Movement collection. I believe Fingercomber.com also has weaves like that
