A balayage style is not limited to long hair only. It can also be a nice touch-up for short and coily hair like this one. The overall look is simple yet it is oozing with a unique depth and dimension.

Natural curls styled as fauxhawk for added interest. This visually-appealing style is made possible by pinning the side of the hair with some metallic clips.

Ya he perdido la cuenta del tiempo que llevo con mi pelo natural. Cuidando y mimado mis rizos.... fue simplemente un impulso, por pura comodidad, no fue una cuestión de identidad, ni de reencuentro con mis raíces afro, uno es lo que es... y por mucho que te alises el pelo, uses extensiones rubias o te hagas un alisado de esos de keratina la esencia es la que es. Y si, siempre me he sentido muy orgullosa de mi negrura y de mis raíces. Sin embargo con la perspectiva del tiempo y con los años que llevo sin usar productos para estirar mi pelo mi sentimiento de seguridad y de orgullo se ha reafirmado. Mis rizos me hacen sentir poderosa, soy yo, tal cual!! #juliah #juliahlifestyle #rizoslifestyle #misrizos #amomisrizos #teamnatural #mujernegra #yamp #naturalhair #soynatural #naturalhaircommunity #naturallycurly #yo

Determine What Your Hair Type Is

There are three types of coily hair and you can identify your hair type by looking at the thickness and curl pattern. If you have s-shaped curls and your hair has a fine texture, your hair type is more than likely 4A coily. If you have 4B coily hair, your curls will have more of a Z shape. Note that this hair type is particularly prone to shrinkage! There is a third type of coily hair, known as 4C. This hair type has z-curls but the curls are tighter than with 4B coily hair.

Nourish Your Hair with The Right Products

If your hair looks dry, try using only conditioner and skip shampoo for a while. You can nourish your hair with natural oils, hair masks or hair creams. Shea butter will do wonders to preserve the natural shape of your curls. Look for hair care products specifically made for your hair type and focus on keeping your hair moisturized to get good results. Using the right products to nourish your hair will make it easier to wear a natural coily style.

Master A Few Braiding Techniques

The best structured coily women hairstyles involve braiding. These styles can last for a few days as long as you protect them with a silk scarf when you sleep. Cornrows are a great way to tame your hair, and you can choose to only braid a portion of your hair if you want to leave some volume. Fishtail braids can also look great with coily hair, and so can criss-cross braids.

Add Some Length with A Twist-Out

Coily hair is a lot longer than it looks. You can make your hair look longer with a twist-out. Once you have twisted your hair out, you can wear it loose to take advantage of the natural length and volume or create a fun updo. You will have to use a few haircare products to condition your hair. You will then have to separate your twists and curls with your fingers coated in oil. You can go through your hair once for a basic twist-out effect, or detangle your curls two or three times to get even more length and volume.

Think About Getting Some Dreadlocks

Dreads are coming back in style. They can look very chic when combined with colors and you can choose how thick you want the dreadlocks to be. Dreadlocks are an original way to frame your face, and this is a versatile coily women hairstyle since you can wear the dreadlocks loose or create a big ponytail or even an updo. This hairstyle requires very little maintenance and will last a long time as long as you take care of your dreads with the right products.
