Check out how gorgeous curls from natural long hair can be. Once you’ve gone natural, it will take some time to grow hair past the shoulders. The average rate of hair growth is 6 inches a year, which of course takes longer to show with curly to tightly coiled hair. After having the dedication and patience to grow natural hair long, show off gorgeous natural curls by wearing hair down. To keep hair healthy, lush, and frizz free, follow these tips for natural hair. In addition to taking care of hair, be sure to get a great haircut. This layered hairstyle emphasizes curls, adds movement, and sculpts a flattering profile. Short layers between cheekbone and chin length frame the face and focus attention on the eyes and jaw line.
