10 DIY Natural Hair Styles to Combat the Summer Heat & Humidity

As a transplant to the beautiful city of Atlanta, GA from Phoenix, AZ I’m having a hard time dealing with the humidity. I went from hell hot in the desert, to sweating window panes in the south. So far, one of the things I’m loving down here is all the beautiful hair styles! As I’m driving down the street, peeking inside folks car, or rushing to a meeting I’m passing beautiful Black women and their hair is on Fleek!

Here is my list of 10 Hair Styles for Naturals to Combat Heat & Humidity…

1. Crochet Braids:

What the hell are crochet braids? I am glad you asked. As the name suggests, crochet braids are hair extensions that are literally crocheted into your own hair (braided into cornrows) with a latch hook tool.

This type of hairstyle has been popular since the ’90s. But today’s version is done more creatively–from the type of hair used to installation techniques to styling. There are so many ways you can crochet braid your hair. Checkout YouTube for “How-To” videos. This is a great DIY (Do It Yourself) style!

2. Updo with a Flower:

Fancify your upswept style with a flower, decorative pin or vintage brooch.

9. Twisted Front

This style is very similar to the Half up-Half down style. You would tuck and roll the front or the crown area of your hair. Or if you prefer a rope twist or flat twist, these are also perfect for this style.  Use a couple of bobby pins to secure any hair left. I tuck and pin toward the middle.
