How To Keep Your Hair Maintained In Public Without The Bonnet

IMG_20170804_164031ARGH ! This has ALWAYS been a pet peeve of mine. Before these jheri curl lookin satin bonnets,you saw the silk scarf covering up a doobie or flat wrap. Or those velcro net wrap headbands.

Look. I am all for convenience. A lot of us have busy lives… You gotta take care of your kids. Maybe you work out. Maybe you work in a hot kitchen all day. For most black women,our hair is a very important part of our lives also. Some wanna keep a blow out “fresh” . Some are just hiding a mess because we “can’t get it done right now.”  I have been in the hair game for about 17 yrs now and I hear it all lol ! But MY CLIENTS know better ! I better not catch you in these streets lookin crazy lol !

Here are five ways to avoid covering your head in a rag in public:

  1. Keep it clean. If you can at least find the time to keep your hair shampooed and fresh. It can easily be put in a neat puff or ponytail.  fb67aa1ad9dfc3bffd3cc64a353c18a1--hair-bow-bun-bow-bunsmaxresdefault
  2. Keep a comb,pick,some hair ties,and hair moisturizer handy. In your glove compartment,purse,gym locker,etc. Throw in your imagination and you can easily throw together a quick 5-10 look. Hey it will beat looking like a lunch lady.
  3. Wear a transparent net over a ponytail or bun,if you work in food service. In the gym,wear a head band and put your hair in a ponytail/bun.hqdefault
  4. Wear a cute hat or head wrap.
  5. Change up your hairstyle. Some hair styles are too high maintenance and expensive to keep up. This is another major reason why a lot of woman keep their hair covered. If you have a lot on your plate,and can’t keep up the maintenance of a style,you should opt for something else. Braids,wigs,getting a low cut are all lower maintenance styles.74163a2d31bed701972b9fbe740a7963--chop-chop-big-chopnia-longs-braids_336x397_44

2. Avoid using extreme heat on your hair to style. When possible try to avoid heat all together. Use other methods of achieving curls and style settings like magnetic rollers, wet setting and curlformers. Heat should NOT be used everyday of the week. If you are going to blow dry your hair make sure it’s partially dry and turn the heat to medium. Just remember too much heat is damaging. 033622d29792dd3ca09329be4486d8f8

3. Keep up with your trims! Every three weeks to shape up, Every seven to eight weeks for a FULL CUT when you get your touch up.
