Natural Hair and Bandanas
Yes, the cotton kind. Girl, I know, but I love my bandanas! If you’ve got a square satin scarf, by all means use that. Read on to learn five ways I style my natural hair with a bandana.
Fold one corner down about halfway or less. Place the fold on your hairline. This is good for protecting longer hair.
Fold the bandana in half. When I’m wearing a style that’s got volume in the back, as with two low puffs, a short tail bandana accommodates it.
It’s the same as a long tail fold, except you place the fold on the nape of your neck. Tuck the tail in front and tie it down. This I use mostly when setting my hair in a bulky state, such as in bantu knots. Fluffing the ruffles this tie creates helps to conceal the lumpiness on top.
Fold opposite corners just past halfway. I use it to spice up a boring bun, pineapple at night, accentuate a high puff, or to cover up them beady beads!
It’s a wide band folded in half. I use it to add some color to my fro and as product-free “edge control”.
