Cornrow hairstyles expose a lot of your scalp, so make sure you start with a shampoo to ensure a clean and healthy scalp. Before you start shampooing your hair, spray some water or a detangler to get rid of the tangles. A wide-toothed comb can render some help too. After gently washing your hair with your preferred shampoo and conditioning it, comb it through to remove any knots and work some moisturizer into your hair with African Pride Shea Miracle Moisture Intense Buttery Crème Hair Moisturizer to hydrate and prep your hair before cornrowing.
Take a step back and visualize the patterns you want as your end style. Geometric paths, curved paths or just straight lines, the hairstyle world is your oyster! Here are the latest Yara Shahidi hairstyles that you must follow.
Use a wooden tail comb to part the first section and start braiding (preferably from the start of your hairline). Secure the cornrow at the end or attach a good quality braid such as Darling Superstar Extensions while cornrowing. Repeat the step for the other sections as per the style you’re going for. Cornrow hairstyles will make you look chic!
Just when you are done with styling your hair into cornrows, it is time to up your game. Accessorise it with beads or throw in some coloured yarn strands to add just the quirk this world needs!
