It’s Lit! 

Spring has arrived, and with it those lovely sun rays. It’s never easy when the heat comes around. Your hair can poof up with the humidity. It can curl up due to sweat, or it can simply dry up cause it’s too hot to hold the moisture in. Here are a few hacks to keep your hair in tact. 

Bantu Knot Up Do   

Bantu Knots are a quick and easy way to style your hair and they usually last for a good length of time. This protective style also works well with short or long hair and any type of cut. I have a short cut right now and the picture above shows me wearing the style. There’s no extra hair added. It’s all me. You simply brush up the back, hold it with whichever hold you use, and bantu knot the front. 

Braids/Cornrows  
Braids are the perfect way to beat the heat. Plus, there are a million different types of braids. My niece has the two long side cornrows. This has recently become a trendy style being worn by the Kardashians and renamed “boxer braids” 😂 but this post isn’t about appropriation. Don’t get me wrong I don’t have a problem with them wearing braids. I actually think they look really cute on them. I take issue with the fact that it wasn’t “cute” until the another culture started doing it. Anyway, there’s more than one opinion on the matter like there’s more than one type of braid. 

  

Here’s my very lovely Ms. Tatum making braids and twists look absolutely fabulous. 

Sew-In/Lace-Front  

Weaves and wigs are a perfect hack for summertime hair. You get a few good bundles and you’re all set. Sew-In methods like the Vixen Sew-In are perfect because they allow for versatility. Lace Front wigs have also made a fabulous comeback. Watch a couple tutorials on YouTube and you’ll see. The lace front game has definitely changed. 

Whatever style of method you choose to use I pray that the humidity doesn’t kill you and that your edges remain forever in place and laid to the gods.
