These days, combing hair can be daunting tasks. With naturals, there’s co-wash, wash, moisturize and more. Women who opt for sew-ins, wigs, or braids have it a little easier, but let’s be real laying a frontal everyday is very annoying and takes patience while flat ironing hair is time consuming. This is where the innovative women step up and turn themselves into bonafide wrap queens.
Hair wraps are culturally relative in African, Caribbean, and Afro-Latina community. The beautiful materials are just one major part of the hair wrap craze. With multiple different methods of typing it, there’s enough versatility for various women. Bright, pastels, African print, and earth tone colors also offer an everyday item that can be worn.
Why are these so hot? Wrapping hair can alleviate the stress coming from mismanagement of time grooming hair and can also limit heat being added to natural hair or on a wig. Also, these wraps accent the faces of the beauties rocking them. Less hairstyle equal more time to play with the makeup on the face and a chance to give a different vibe.
Personally, I am a lover of a good scarf and beat face. It can jazz it up or wear it to run errands; either way, I cannot live without my scarves especially on a bad hair day.
Queens, are you rocking colorful crowns this summer? I know I am. You should too.
