I don’t like to wear my hair out that often because I really don’t feel like spending the extra time every morning styling my hair and then having to spend another 30 min-1 hour putting it away at night. Although I have to admit that I enjoy the variety of styles that i’m able to put my hair in when it’s out.
1) Chunky Twists: I do this style when I want a textured style such as a twist out, afro puff twist out or textured pin up the following day.
2) Plaits: I rarely do this style as it takes a while, but I will plait my hair at night if I’m going for a stretched “out” style or a smoother textured style.
3) Chunky Flat Twists: I would do this for a wavy look or any hairstyle that only requires partially stretched hair.
4) Corn Rows: I would do this when I plan to wear a smooth and stretched look the following day.
5) Rod Sets: I rarely do this because it takes time but I often use these rollers to stretch out my twists and to give it a bit of a curl.
6) Bantu Knots: This is my go to night time hairstyle because it keeps my roots stretched.
7) Bun: A really simple lazy hairstyle. I only do this on already stretched hair from the day’s hairstyle and if I plan to wear another stretched style the following day.
8) African Threading: this takes a while to do, so I don’t do it often. I do this style if i plan to wear a smooth and stretched up-do the following day.
9) Pineappling / Puff: I’ve never tried this method because I prefer to keep all my hair stretched at night. This style will be the most suitable for type 3 hair or really moisturized type 4 hair. My hair takes the shape it’s put in, so it wouldn’t work for me, unless I plan to wear a puff the next day.
