10 Cute & Trendy Back to School Natural Hairstyles for Black Girls

(Last Updated On: November 27, 2018)

In this post, I want to share 10 back to school natural hairstyles for black girls. This is because it’s back to school season, which means that a lot of parents will be looking for natural hairstyles ideas for their daughters

These hairstyles ranges anywhere from easy and quick to a bit more complex and time-consuming.

Some kids might be more tender-headed and less patient than others. This means that you can choose the best hairstyle that best suits your daughter’s preferences.

Also be sure that you don’t pull too tightly on your daughter’s hair, as it might lead to breakage and traction alopecia. It will also result in an uncomfortable styling session both for your daughter and yourself or hairstylist.

Another thing to note is that majority of these hairstyles are extensions free, but I’ve also included a few hairstyles that includes the use of extensions, in case you want your daughter’s hairstyle to last longer.

Maintenance Tips

You want to keep your daughter’s hair in a satin bonnet while she sleeps at night.

When she showers, make sure she wears a shower cap.

To keep her scalp moisturized, use an anti-itch scalp oil that will keep her scalp fresh and supple.

To keep her hair moisturized, lightly spray her hair with a leave-in conditioner spritz. You can either buy one or you can make yours in a spray bottle. A basic hair spritz includes water, leave-in conditioner and oil.

To take down the hairstyle, lightly spray her hair with the leave-in spritz so that her hair is moisturized and doesn’t break off when you take it down. Also be sure to detangle as you go, so you won’t have much work afterwards.
