11 Life-Changing Hairstyles To Rock When Your New Growth Has No Chill

Not today, edges. Not today.

Posted on

New growth doesn't always mean it's time for another relaxer, though, so here are few styles to try the next time your roots and edges have absolutely no chill.

Licensed cosmetologist Lisa Akbari suggests getting hair relaxers no sooner than every 10 weeks.


2. Defined Heatless Curls

Hair blogger Nae2Curly used Carols Daughter Marula Diffusing & Styling Lotion to rod her hair. Heatless curls will give your hair a break, and also blend any new growth in with the volume.

3. High Bun

A high bun created with additional synthetic or human hair takes about five minutes, and it's a great way to hide your budding new growth.

For a more relaxed look, like LakiaStar's, use straight hair and a strong holding gel around your edges. Traeh does a more textured look using Marley hair, which is great if you have a lot of new growth.


8. Textured Blow Out

For a much fuller blow out, don't straighten the hair with a flat iron. You won't have to worry about taming your edges or getting your roots super straight with this full-out blow out on My Natural Sistas' YouTube channel.
