9. TWA

A TWA, or teeny weeny afro, is the perfect low maintenance hairstyle for a number of reasons. First, it’s a great choice when you are growing out your natural hair. Second, it’s not as short as a buzzcut and looks more casual. Third, it requires little to no styling and will look good no matter what.

So, I haven’t been feeling like myself for months now. One minute I feel like me again, but the next day, that feeling changes. I’ve been working on myself and haven’t been posting much content for yall, but I promise I’ll be back to doing so soon. Just want to thank everyone who continues to support me, my journeys, and what I have to offer. Please continue to stay patient with your girl. Self-care is number one right now. I’ll be back and better soon. 🥰 In other new, today is a good hair day! Yall I hadn’t done my hair in a while! Good to see my curls again haha!😆

10. Buzzcut

The ultimate low maintenance hairstyle – in fact, this hairstyle does not require any maintenance at all – is the buzzcut. Of course, it takes a lot of courage to just chop your hair off, but women who have already done it say it’s very liberating on top of being super convenient.
