But once the wave of feeling empowering and liberating, has passed, this transition can get really frustrating.

But wipe away those tears of frustration, love, cause with these 3 curly root styles below, you can be sure to wow everywhere you go!

A head wrap or headscarf as some people call it is the perfect accomplice to styling your curly roots. your curly root styling ruse. They say that the key to the perfect trick is a good distraction and trust us hon, everyone you meet will be too distracted with the beauty of the top knot to pay any attention to the curly roots and straight ends underneath.
Listen up chica, protective hairstyles DO NOT get the attention and appreciation that they rightfully deserve. For example, this mini braids protective hairstyle that you see here, not only protects our curls from breakage but ensures quicker growth and also keeps our tresses off your face and neck, all the while maintaining a ramp-ready look. Oh, and we haven’t even gotten to the best part yet – this hairstyle doesn’t discriminate. So whether your roots are straight or curly, if done right, the result will always be jaw-dropping. Get set to slay!
