A Fun Way to Find Natural Hairstyle Inspiration

pinterest Do you need inspiration for transitioning or natural hairstyles?

Of course you do.  We all do from time to time!

Here’s Help!

So if you haven’t heard of Pinterest yet, you will in the next couple of months.

It’s one of the fastest growing social networking sites out there and I believe there is so much untapped potential for the natural hair community.

When I first heard of it I thought “Oh boy… not another social networking site.”

As an online marketer, I spend enough time managing my website Facebook and Twitter accounts, so I sure don’t need anything else to keep up with.

Nevertheless, I created a Pinterest account a few days ago, and was pleasantly surprised at how useful it can be — especially for finding new hairstyles and sharing them with others.

I’m only following a few people and I’m already itchin’ to try some new styles.

How It Works

Pinterest lets you organize, share and comment on pictures that you find around the Web.  Simply install their app and you’re ready to go!

Natural Hairstyles

Any time you stumble upon a picture you like online, simply hit “Pin it” on your browser (or phone app) and the picture is instantly shared.  Organize your pictures into different “boards” — that way people can select which of your boards they want to follow.

For example, I created a board called “Fly Natural Hairstyles.”  Now, anyone can follow that board and be notified when I “Pin” a new photo.  They can also “Like”, Re-pin the photo to their board or comment on it.

So as you can see, Pinterest adopted elements of both Twitter and Facebook.

    I am a newbie on becoming a naturalist. I’m 5 months without a perm i have cut my ends where the perm still exist. My question is what can i use on my hair after i wash and condition so my hair want be so tight . I have thick hair and i have dry hair. Please help.

    Hi Ms. Lisa,
    I wanted to know how do you cut your ends? I know it seems like a very silly question and that the process is self-explanatory, but i am struggling with cutting my ends and having sections of my transitioning hair equal to each other. I’ve looked on Youtube and I am confused because there are TOO MANY DIFFERENT METHODS :(. I am in my fourth month of transitioning, about to enter my fifth and already my back hair is all-natural because in previous months i cut more of the relaxed hair off than in the front, and my sides are shorter than my middle and front sections (lol when i comb my hair our it looks like an awkward afro). Please help me before i start cutting off my natural hair.
    Thanks,
    Yours DESPERATELY IN NEED OF A TRIM Olives
    P.S
    I prefer being called olives :D

      Hi olivia

      I went thru the same thing. In fact, my hair is still longer in the back but it’s fine because it’s just in layers. But now I put my hair in medium sized twists (I may have about 25 or so on my head) and I trim that way. But my back is still longer. I just don’t want to cut it. :)

    Hi Lisa,
    I went online early this morning looking for ways of perking up my texturised hair which has gone flat…and hours later wound up here. I think I will probably make the move to natural hair – your website is going to be so helpful to achieving that. I am going to spend the next three months researching it so that by the time my next texturiser is due, I will just start transitioning. I would love an invite to Pinterest because the key for me will be to 1) find hairstyles that I can wear in a corporate environment. My other challenge will to maintain deeply moisturised hair, ie finding the right products. Thank you for all the effort you have put in, you have inspired so many people.
