Black Hairstyles

Throughout the years I have heard of many different black women talking about how difficult it is to style their hair. Not being of African American descent it is hard to imagine the difficulties that are presented to them with everyday taming and straightening curly, thick, coarse hair.

With the right hair products and a Karmin hair straightener you can achieve this look in no time. I found a website that helps in taming the common black hair: www.2hairstyles.com. It gives you product ideas, then if you refer to our website, My hair Styling Tools, it gives you the tools to achieve the look.

When shampooing your hair always just put shampoo at base of scalp and massage. Do not add shampoo to the bottom of your hair. Just rinse out and let the water rinse the shampoo out, while doing this the shampoo slides down your hair still cleaning it but not overdoing it where dryness would occur.

With my experience, (hairdressing that is) I can tell you this:

  • taming frizz serum must be used while your hair is soaking wet, I mean dripping all over the place. You will know the right amount to use after some practice.
  • if you don’t have a lot of time and you must blow dry, use cool air and dry in sections.

  • Use a wide tooth comb or brush so to not rip through your hair
  • Once hair is dried heat up your Hair Iron
  • Separate your hair in sections. It is much easier to get a couple of clips and start straightening from the bottom back working your way around to the sides and then up. When straightening hair, run the iron down the section slowly to get the best results.

Once you are finished, in most cases, depending on the product, you should be able to comb your hair out and add some setting spray and be on your way.

I found that there are a lot of interesting sites for black hairstyles and these were my top choices;

Don’t forget there is such a thing as “overwashing”, do not “rip through your hair, start from the bottom and work your way up“, always try to just shampoo the roots, and the most important one of all, any kind of frizz reducer must be used when hair is SOAKING WET.
