OWN Your TWA This Summer- Short Natural Hair Styles


When I first went natural, I thought my TWA was the worst thing in the world. I only rocked protective hairstyles in hopes of growing out my hair. Instead, using protective hair styles turned out to be the easiest way to neglect my hair. After realizing the damage, I finally gained some courage to rock my TWA.

Own your teenie weenie afro (TWA) this summer. The summer is the perfect time to stray away from the protective hairstyles and give your hair a break. If some of you are still afraid of flaunting your TWA and continue using protective hairstyles to hide it, I urge you to be brave this summer! After all, your TWA is beautiful no matter how short it is. In time, the length will come. I also urge you to strive for healthy hair more than you do for lengthy hair. Instead of finding styles that will stretch your hair, focus more on length retention by deep conditioning and moisturizing.
We can already tell this summer is going to be a hot one, so give your TWA some fresh air and sun this summer!

Check out some naturalistas rocking their fabulous TWA’s in a few YouTube tutorials below:

How long have you been natural?
I have been natural all my life.

How did family and friends react to your decision to go natural? What was your response to them? 
My mom and dad both supported me to keep with my natural hair because it identifies who I truly am.

Tips for Keeping Natural Hair Moisturized in the Summer Heat

Summer is one of the best times of the year.

A time to explore, travel, and soak up the sun. All of that sounds nice, but the same can't be said for your hair. Harsh sun rays damage hair, dry it out and can even fade your color. That’s why when summer comes around, it’s time to revisit (and revamp) your hair routine. Higher humidity levels and temperatures suck the moisture out of the hair. Because summer conditions differ so much from winter conditions for example, the products used should be modified in order to support healthy moisture levels during that time.
