Is your hair style natural if it came in a plastic bag?

I like natural hair, afros, close cuts, curls and locks.

All of a sudden natural hair is once again becoming popular. With stars like  Solange Knowles, Iyanla Vanzant and Lauryn Hill sporting natural hair styles, ladies are heading back to their roots.

But what makes a hair style natural? Is it the lack of a relaxer?

According to, growing natural hair out can be a real challenge especially if you have transitioned into this new texture from a relaxer. Many have to start from ground zero after choosing to cut it all off, leaving you with a TWA (teenie weenie afro) and now you have to figure out how to get your long healthy hair if that’s your goal.

There are many things that come into play when striving to achieve hair length, including styling and hair maintenance.
Often women will purchase their natural hair or weave in braids and then allow it to lock.  

Here are five natural grow out tips:
1. Diet: iron, protein,
2. Vitamins: vitamin E and B12 is good for hair growth,
3. Natural oils: castor oil, Jojobo oil and olive oil,
4. Trim those ends and
5. Protective styling: two strand twists, braids, weaves and buns.

You see that hair in the plastic bag can get you to natural after all.
