Twisted Knot Protective Style Natural Hair | Winter + Summer Hairstyle - Naptural85

I'm calling this the "Twisted Knot": a simple and flattering protective hairstyle! It's heatless, perfect for medium to long length natural hair and is perfect all year long, whether winter, spring, summer or fall! This is a protective hairstyle that is appropriate for work and office, school, kids, pretty much anyone can pull this off! It's also a great natural hairstyle for working out! I can't say enough about how much I've been enjoying this style, I hope you like it as well!

How To Trim Layered Natural Hair At Home | Dry + Stretched Hair - Naptural85 

 

Hi Guys! This is the first time I trimmed my natural hair while dry and stretched! I already have a video showing how I trim the split ends, damage, and single strand knots off of my wet, curly natural hair, without stretching or straightening, and so I asked if you wanted to see the method on Instagram! This method is really easy and simple, and doesn't take long to master. Also, I only trim my natural hair as needed. I hope this helps and I hope you enjoy How To Trim Dry Stretched Natural Hair At Home!
