2. TWA

When you are in the mood for a change or want to chop off your damaged hair and let new, healthy hairs grow out more efficiently, your best option is a TWA, or teeny weeny afro.

QUARANTINE STYLE DIARY: Like most Black Women in quarantine, I wondered how I would manage caring for my nails and hair while salons and barbershops were closed. I made the decision to shave my head and return it to it’s natural state in 2011 to eliminate the cost of the HUNDREDS of dollars I was being charged monthly to relax, cut, and style my hair. 💸😩 From that point on, I have dedicated myself to leading a healthier lifestyle in ALL areas of my life. In essence, I’ve actually been preparing for an event like this for quite some time. Over the last month, I’ve had ample time to exercise my self-care CREATIVITY, since my nails and hair have been rapidly growing. I had to make the difficult decision to cut my fabulously long nails that I’d been growing out for almost a year, and remove the SNS powder protecting them 💅🏾😢. Turns out short nails aren’t so bad when they’re sharp and hard as adamantium CLAWS (unfollow me right damn now if you don’t know what the hell adamantium is! 😡😝). To my surprise, playing with temporary color in my hair has unlocked several NEW LEVELS of SLAY for me! 💛🧡💁🏾‍♀️❤️💜 Shopping on Amazon has been a LIFESAVER, as I’ve been able to purchase cheap products to play with until I feel comfortable enough to venture back to my barber’s chair. The brand of color I use is called #MOFAJANG and it’s less than $10 a container on Amazon 🏷️🤑 ! I am a LIVING TESTAMENT that it IS possible to look FABULOUS while you STAY HOME in quarantine (and save a TON of money while doing so! 💰😆 ) #TeamNatural #NaturalHair #BigChop #TWA #TeenyWeenyAfro #BlackGirlMagic #AlpharettaBarber #AtlantaBarber #ATLbarber #SandySpringsBarber #NaturalHair #NaturalHairStyles #Tapered #TaperedFro #TaperedAfro #ShortNaturalHair #DopeCutz #NaturallyShesDope #ShortNaturalHairStyles #ShortNaturalHairStyle #EdgesLaid #4cHairstyles #WashAndGo #Styling #barber #barbershop #barbers #Natural #EcoStylerGel #stylist

3. Cornrows

In a way, cornrows resemble braids, but with braids, the centre of attention of the hairstyle are the braids themselves, while with cornrows, the attention is mostly drawn to the pattern on the scalp. Cornrows can be both long and short, but they are both easily maintained and don’t put any excessive strain on your hair. However, while you can possibly do your own braids, you will probably need professional help with cornrows, since those intricate patterns of hair on the scalp require precision, a steady hand, and experience.

Dreadlocks are possibly one of the oldest hairstyles for natural hair known to man, but they haven’t lost a bit of their popularity in ages.
