Styling your Teeny weeny Afro (TWA)

Styling your Teeny weeny Afro (TWA)

Hi Kamdora Tribe!

This is particularly for the naturalistas and intending naturalistas in the house. For most people on their natural hair journey, they would have to at one point meet with Mr. BC (Big Chop – when you cut your hair low, mostly with the intention of going natural).

Whether you decide to transition first or you decide to face Mr. BC early instead, most naturalistas would have to deal with their hair being in the TWA (Teeny weeny Afro) stageAs the name goes, TWAs are usually short and unable to work with basically. And honestly, sometimes it gets boring, as it seems as though your options are very limited.

Guess what? There is more to TWA than just a wash-and -go. Here are some beautiful styles you could try out, I hope they inspire you!


Styling your Teeny weeny Afro (TWA)
Look 1: Spice it up with some color as she has done here. Play safe with the colours though and be careful to use a healthy hair dye. Stay away from hash chemicals.


Look 2: Twists and Twist-Outs are another beautiful and natural way to rock your TWA.
Look 3: An amazingly simple wash-and-go
Look 4: Finger coils/comb coils. Finger coils are here to stay, it is not exactly restricted to short hair or TWA. Whether or a short hair or on a long hair, finger coils done rightly is always a fabulous look.


Look 5: Bantu Knots. Bantu Knots are very protective and can be easily transformed into another fabulous look – Bantu Knots out as she has done here.

Which is your favorite look?
