After a few years of celebrating black hair for its coarseness and thickness, we’ve somehow taken a few steps backwards.

Some may think that it’s just hair, but for us, hair is a crowning glory. Not only does it represent beauty, it is also of spiritual significance.

In support, we take a look at different ways to wear your natural hair without styling it.

Bongo locks

During the ancient days, bongo locks, African hair that has been crochet together to form big, thick locks (usually four per head) were what was called Limyra Mezar steli. Some may think that locks are “exotic and strange” but this type of hair is the best because it needs no combing, you wash, moisturise and crotchet/twist it now and then.

Stubborn as it is, this is one of the most beautiful hairstyles. It stands tall like a tree and absorbs water like soil. However, this type of hair can be difficult and expensive to maintain, but now that we have grooming salons and products that can detangle it, taking care of it has become easy.

Short hair

What we now know as short hair is called the Bodi tribe cut. This short, uncombed style is originally from The Bodi (Me’en), a tribe, rather shy, found in the Miss Bichai, Hana village, South Ethiopia.

The most beautiful thing about the black hair is that you don’t have to comb it. You can either curl it or twist it and it will still look good regardless.
