||Welcome to Caring for African Hair!
In this section you'll learn a little more about natural hair choices
and how to get the beads onto the ends of braids using the wire method.
There are free public lessons on how to cornrow and pinch braid on the net. If you haven't read them yet, do so. The links will open in a new window, so you won't lose your place here.
There are many styles that can be done with naturally curly hair. When you are washing and moisturizing it properly, the trick to manageability and great looking styles is simply not ever allowing the hair to matt.
This can be difficult with children and people with active lifestyles. You must get them into the habit of protecting their hair from dirt and dust, and unless they have mature dreadlocks, wearing a scarf or bonnet to bed. Another solution is the old fashioned African neck rest, but this is only really good for back sleepers who don't need a soft pillow.
You also have to be mindful of tension. As mentioned earlier, after washing, the hair should be parted into a few sections and braided. When you do this, bear in mind that you shouldn't pull the hair too tight from the scalp. When hair is wet, it expands, and as it dries, it shrinks back down to its normal size. So these braids should be very gentle, and just enough to hold the hair in place to keep it from knotting.
