Solange Knowles - natural styles

Going natural should be easy for us, but when you're in the midst of going natural it soon becomes apparent how inept we are with coping with our natural hair. Styling, products, routine you name it, it can be mind-boggling how many things we have to learn about the hair that grows from our heads.



Here are some pictures of Solange Knowles since she went for the big chop a couple years ago. She leaves her hair out, twists it and uses protective styles to look after her tresses.






Protective styling inbetween the growing out period protects the hair and allows it to grow without being constantly pulled through combing and affected by the weather.





Here Solange has added pieces into her hair to make her hair look thicker and slightly longer.


Going natural is a decision that takes time, some money and patience. Using the right products is essential to acheiving healthy long hair. A regime is needed and it needs to be followed quite religiously. I'm in the process of going natural and websites such as long natural hair and hairlicious really help.
