When it comes to natural hair we often leave the fellas out of it. But we all know that chemically enhanced curls and texture changing chemicals is a thing for boys and men just as it is for women. So when when we share our messages about natural hair we really need to include our Black brothers too because a lot of times they share some of the same concerns that we as women deal with. A hot new trend right now for naturally coiled hair are Sponges. Sponge styling is a great alternative for many people who wish to achieve the same coil textured look as a texturizer without applying harmful chemicals to their hair. Barbershops across the country are spicing up haircuts by using a sponge as a hair styling tool to create these funky coils. And for the guys this means turning ordinary high top fades and mohawk haircuts, etc into a stylish fashion statement.
To achieve chic looking styles with a sponge requires only 4 simple steps.
Purchase a sponge.
Use a hair comb or hair pick to comb the hair out.
Apply product of choice evenly throughout the hair.
Gently rub the sponge (in a circular motion) evenly all over the head until coils begin to form.
