If your hair is processed (permed, texturized or jherri curled) your easiest way to go natural is to clip the processed hair. We understand that this option is not the easiest to do and so braiding is offered as an alternative transition.
Braids allow one the ability to go natural without cutting off processed hair. Braids can either be done in twists, plaits or cornrows.
Chiney Bumps/ Bantu Knotouts
The hair is two strand twisted in medium sizes and then rolled into small balls held in place with rubber bands.
Small coils are created using a tail comb and gel. This is style can be used to cultivate locks in persons whose hair texture is too soft or the hair is blunt with no ends to retain a rope twist. After the hair is comb twisted it is then dried under the hair dyer until the gel melts and disappears.
Hair is parted into rows and plaited onto the scalp. This can be done with extensions.
Free Twist/ Twist Outs
This is a loose form of two strand twist.
Rope Twist or Two Strand Twist
The hair is sectioned into small parts and the parts are then separated into two strands and twisted together to look like a tightly woven rope. This style, if cared for, can last anywhere from 3 to five weeks. It actually looks nicer the longer it stays as the hair gets fluffy and bouncy.
