Short Afro

This style is simple and sweet - great for the woman who is transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. As will all types of natural hair, a short afro should be moisturized and conditioned and taken care of to encourage its growth. Photo © Hongqi Zhang (aka Michael Zhang) | Dreamstime.com

Twist Out

To achieve this look with natural hair, the hair should be twisted after washing and conditioning ( a twist is like a braid, but it uses two strands instead of three). After the hair has tried, the twists should be gently taken apart and fluffed up to achieve a twist out. Picture © Andre Nadeau | Dreamstime.com
