What To Do When You're Bored With Your Natural Hair
Feeling bored with your natural hair? Don't worry, you're not alone. Many women (natural or not) feel like this from time to time. Sometimes we find ourselves wearing the same styles because they are easy and the outcome is predictable but we secretly long for something different. The thought of switching things up can be scary especially if it's difficult to reverse. Listed down below are a few tips to help break you out of your styling rut.
Change Your Part
One of the easiest ways to switch up your look when you’re bored with your natural hair is to switch your part. This takes the least amount of time to do and it’s the safest choice when it comes to your natural hair. If you normally part your hair down the middle try parting it on either the right or left side and vice versa.
Shape up your hair
Another easy way to switch up your look is to shape up your hair! When your curls start to grow out, the shape of your hair may start to fade. Head to your stylist and trim and shape those curls! Not only will you have fresh and healthy curls, shaping up your hair can add extra volume to your tresses.
Look For Natural Hair Inspo
Whether it's on Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest or even TikTok, it's always fun to look for new natural hair inspiration. When I'm stuck in a rut, social media is my #1 place to go. Just type in what you want and boom, it's all right there!
Have a Self-Care Day Where You Try out New Styles
Having the same routine and style can get a bit repetitive and may also lead to you getting bored with your hair. Whether this is a new technique, new product or new style, schedule a self care day for yourself where you're trying out new things to your hair. Maybe you've seen a new hair technique on social media or want to try out a brand new product. Adding wigs into your routine is also a great way to switch up your look without damaging your curls! Having a free day to do something new to your hair is always fun and can help get you out of your natural hair boredom.
Play Around With Heat
Playing around with heat can help you break out of your rut. However, this should be practiced with care and precaution. If you're going to use heat, make sure you have a good heat protectant and your heat setting on your tools aren't too high! Kinky Tresses Avocado Infusion Hair Milk is not only a bomb leave-in, but it can also double up as a blowout cream.
Change Up Your Color
Changing the color of your hair is a big step, so make sure that you are ready! If you don't want to commit to a permanent hair color just yet, try using temporary hair color wax! These waxes come in so many different colors and are a great way to test out what your hair will look like with color. However if you really want a big change, try a new hair color. Nothing says fresh like a new hair color. There is so much you can do with color that it's so hard not to be creative with it! Make sure if you are wanting professional results, you are going to a professional. Things like changing up your hair color could really damage your hair if done incorrectly! If you do plan on changing up your color, make sure you are taking the necessary steps, like deep conditioning treatments and protein treatments, before and after your color appointment. Kinky Tresses Avocado Infusion Restorative Conditioner doubles up as a deep conditioner and also has a little bit of protein to help you keep your tresses moisturized and healthy.
