7 Unique Advantages of Short Natural Hair

7 Unique Advantages of Short Natural Hair

Short hair has been a style rocked by all, whether by choice or a transition to longer lengths. Here are 7 reasons why you should go ahead if you're thinking of wearing short hair.

1. Stronger Ends

New growth equals stronger hair simply because it has not been around long enough to be exposed to the elements, manipulation and wear and tear that come naturally as the hair ages. Basically shorter hair is stronger, period. As long as you are not causing damage to your hair by heat, over manipulation and chemicals, your ends are the strongest of them all!

2. More Styling Manipulation

The advantages of having shorter hair not only means less manipulation (if you can keep your hands out of your hair in those idle moments) but also being able to withstand a little more manipulation than longer lengths. As previously mentioned new growth is stronger and can handle a little more manipulation than longer hair, which is why there are women (like Amber Rose) who rock short haircuts and dye their hair every color under the sun but still have healthy hair. The constant cutting of your ends to achieve a shorter look eliminates damage that occurred while using a chemical such as dye.

3. Water is Your Best Friend

We all know water is your best friend regardless of length but if you are a shorty, you really have the comfort of enjoying Mother Nature’s greatest gift without the process of protective styles or sectioning to reduce tangling, not to mention air-drying short hair is a dream! After all, 'water e no get enemy'. 

4. No Need Protective Styling

The length of short hair is automatically a protective style within itself since your ends will not be in friction with any clothing articles you may be wearing. No matter what your hair type texture, if hair is above shoulder length you have more freedom to wear your hair out without risking damage from friction.

5. Less Time

The hands of time are on your side! Finally yeah? With less hair you save time on everything from detangling, washing to styling. And think about the time you spend styling your hair everyday before you have to leave the house. Now that time is considerably shorter.

6. Easier Detangling

The longer/older your strands are, the more susceptible they are to feathering; when your ends are thinner and finer than your roots due to wear over time. Feathering leads to tangling, single strand knots and split ends.

7. Product Usage

You know how they say more money, more problems? Well it's less hair, less hair products! if you wear short hair, it means you'll use less hair products, hence saving you money.

So ladies, if you’re currently rocking short hair, let us know what you love about it?
