80 Simple & Easy Natural Hairstyles For Black Women

The natural hair movement is one that seems to have taken over the Black hair community by storm.

After years of harsh treatments and chemicals in a bid to get the much desired bone straight and silky hair, a lot of black women and girls are now rocking their natural hair with confidence.

The natural hair movement has seen the birth of a lot of natural hair companies and products all tailor made to fit different hair types and textures.

Sitting on over 25.7 million hashtags on Instagram under #naturalhair and over 400,000 posts under #naturalhairproducts, this movement doesn’t seem like it will be dying down anytime soon.

Whether you’re a fan of company made natural hair products or you prefer to mix different natural ingredients to come up with the perfect concoction for your regimen, natural hair being hard to style is a thing of the past.

Unlike relaxed hair– which in it’s straight form has limited styling options- natural hair is very versatile.

Regardless of whether you have thick kinky hair, curly hair, 4b or 4c natural hair, your natural hair styling options are limitless.

In this article, we’ll take a look at 80 simple and easy natural hairstyles for black women from mini twists, claw clip hairstyles to afros, space buns & more.

Afro Hairstyles on Natural Hair

Moisturize your hair and fluff it using your fingers or wide tooth comb to add volume.

The bigger the fro the better it will look.

Worry not if you’re still in the early stages of your natural hair journey and you have a twa (teeny weeny Afro). Teeny weeny afros are equally as pretty.

Twist Outs on Natural Hair

Twist outs are achieved via washing your hair with a shampoo, deep conditioning it, using shea butter or curling butter and other desired products.

The hair is then sectioned and twisted using the 2 strand or 3 strand twist method.

The twisted hair is then left overnight and unraveled the following day.

The result is usually a beautiful twist out which varies depending on your hair texture and products used.

The longer you leave your twists in, the better it tends to look. Use of curling butters that are suitable for your hair type also contribute to the end result.
