Use Marley Hair or Textured Clip-Ins:
There really is no end to the styles that you can achieve with your natural hair using Marley hair or textured clip-ins.
While not every natural’s goal is to grow waist-length hair, most of us long for the moment we can throw our hair up in a bun or rock a big bold afro. Lucky for us, both of those styles can be achieved with the addition of Marley braiding hair or textured clips ins/extensions.
You will look elegant and amazing in faux buns and elegant pin-up do’s, which also double as a protective style. We all know that growing out natural hair takes time and it’s easy to get frustrated when it seems your hair is making no progress. So we can always turn to afro-textured hair that’s available to us, more and more options are becoming available. You can use it to momentarily experience the length you desire all while protecting our own hair.
The Puff Is The Stuff
The tried and true afro-puff is a great go-to style during the awkward stage of a natural hair journey. I loved everything about wearing my hair in an afro puff. It was super cute, I could style my hair in less than ten minutes, and I was able to maintain my hair without over manipulating it.
I also like this style because it can be worn in a variety of ways.You can rock the style with or without super defined curls, you can leave bangs out in the front if you choose, and for a more retro look you can even opt for gathering your hair off center for a side puff.
