If you're growing out your curls just in time for long, luxurious locks by summer, don't despair. You can still enjoy trending spring hairstyles for curls without compromising on your length goals.

Get in tune with your creativity while prioritizing your hair's health. Let's bloom together this spring with the best natural hairstyles for growth!

Empowering Natural Hair Growth: Causes of Slow Hair Growth, Seasonal Changes, and More

Understanding your hair's growth cycle is an essential part of natural hair care for spring. From seasonal changes to the products you use, a constant rotation of factors affects our hair growth at any given time.

Helping our hair bloom is best accomplished by nourishing your lovely locks with the vitamins and nutrients they need to thrive. Lack of nourishment is also a primary cause of slowed hair growth. Think of your curls like a flower! The three main ingredients for success are water, nutrition, and vitamins. Focus on staying hydrated alongside prioritizing a diet rich in antioxidants, greens, and B vitamins for optimal hair growth. In addition, winter dryness can often linger into the spring, causing breakage and brittleness. If you notice that your hair is stiff, less bouncy, or shedding excessively, this is a sign that you aren't drinking enough water. 

When Was the Last Time Your Curls Had a Trim?

In the winter, we tend to be less on top of hair care and often let our natural hair grow out, without maintaining edges for optimal growth. The start of spring is the ideal time for a trim. Warmer weather is approaching and taking off a few inches will make your hair feel lighter and more relaxed. It's also best to trim your hair now rather than waiting for summer as this minimizes heat damage and "cut shock" - the abrupt edge our hair sometimes experiences following a trim. Your curls will have plenty of time to grow into their natural length when summer rolls around.

Have You Been Styling Your Curls a Lot Over the Winter Holidays?

Maybe you've amped up the flat ironing or rushed through your daily routine by blow-drying your curls into place. If this sounds like your current styling routine, excessive heat treatments may be stalling new hair growth. High heat is also a disruptor of the protein bonds that give your curls their strength and shape. Over time as these bonds ravel, curls can begin to lose their form and fray at the end, making new growth impossible.

Spring into healthier hair by starting 2023 with a new way of hairstyling. Reverse air drying is a revolutionary technique designed to protect your curl's integrity and support your hair growth goals. Learn more about how to use RevAir in your everyday styling routine.

Healthy Hairstyles for Spring Curls, Waves, and Straight Locks

Creative hairstyling for spring comes in many different textures, shapes, and cuts. We love discovering new cute hairstyles that are both trendy and gentle on our natural locks. Low-tension hairstyles support natural hair growth by reducing strain and damage. Whether your hair texture is more fine or voluminous, these go-to styles are trending in 2023. 

Low Messy Bun

 

Turn imperfection into art with a low-tension messy bun! This style is easy to achieve on all hair types. An alternative to traditional tight buns, this look is perfect for day or night. Use a bit of medium hold gel to slick back your hair, gather the strands into a low bun that starts just above the back of your neck, and use a comb or your fingers to tease out a few strands around your face. The result will frame your stunning features while highlighting your hair's versatility.

Heatless Curls

 

You may have seen heatless curls trending on TikTok, but this low-damage technique is far more than a fad. Heatless curls are also the perfect soft spring hairstyle. If you love creative hairstyling, try using the wrapping technique before bed to create low-heat curls in one effortless step.

Half Up, Half Down, All Fabulous

 

A whimsical half-up, half-down look is one of our favorite cute spring hairstyles. Use claw clips to lock your curls into place for a faerie tale chic aesthetic. This is a great option for between wash days when your curls may start to lose volume. If you want to give the illusion of volume and dimension, try tucking a second loop of hair beneath the first clip to lift the crown.

With so many unique spring hairstyles to choose from, supporting healthy natural hair has never been easier. Share your creations with us and get inspired for spring 2023.

Is Growth Your Goal? These Long Hairstyles for Spring Will Help You Bloom 

Are you looking for long hairstyles for curly and coily hair? Maybe your hair's length isn't quite where you'd like it to be yet. If you're planning to let your curls bloom this spring, protective hairstyles for natural hair growth are the best way to get the look you want now without compromising your hair's health. Protective hairstyles are just that; a way to shield your natural locks from damage while giving you the freedom to try creative styles. Check out these lightweight protective hairstyles that won't damage new growth.

Crochet Locs

 

Love locs, but don't love the added weight and tension? Crochet locs are unique, versatile, and wonderfully lightweight! This springy style is ideal for growing out natural hair and enjoying long faux locks while you wait.

Sky High Power Pony

 

Channel your inner Ariana Grande with a stunning, voluminous high ponytail. Faux ponytails are easy to install and low effort to maintain, giving you the freedom to change your style without damaging your natural hair in the process. 

Clip-In Extensions

 

Are you curious about trying a new hair color, but don't want to stall your natural hair growth with chemical processing? Clip-in hair extensions for textured hair are the perfect curly hair solution. These faux locks come in a variety of curl patterns and blend seamlessly into your natural hair when applied by a professional. Best of all, clip-in hair extensions exert less tension on the root than beaded wefts.

Sew-Ins

 

When it comes to protective hairstyles for hair growth, faux locks are at the top of our list. Sew-in wefts are ideal for protecting your new growth without compromising your style. This style is on the lower maintenance end of the natural hair care spectrum. Sew-ins are long-lasting and stay fresh and vibrant for months, minimizing the need for frequent hairstyling.

Halo Twists

 

Halo twists are a truly angelic protective hairstyle for growth. This look can be worn in a variety of different ways and offers great edge control. Halo twists are an excellent choice if you're especially prone to split ends. They even leave behind stunning, beachy waves when taken out so you can enjoy a whole new style once your twists have retired.

Space Buns

 

Space buns are a fantastic option for short spring twist hairstyles. Unlike other protective hairstyles such as Bantu knots, space buns won't exert too much tension on the root and scalp. They can be styled loosely and even left as messy buns to ensure your natural hair stays damage-free. Rather than pulling your hair up into a single bun and concentrating the tension at the top of your scalp (ouch!), space buns distribute hair tension evenly to avoid stressing out your curls. The result? A super cute, super healthy hairstyle.

Cornrows

 

Cornrows for natural hair growth protect your scalp as well as the hair cuticle from harm. This classic style is resilient and easy to maintain. A growing trend we're loving in 2023 is incorporating different designs and shapes into your cornrows to create an undercut effect with long braids completing the look. This elegant, yet low-maintenance look is one to add to your list for spring hairstyles.

Twisted Chignon

 

Elegant and sophisticated, this style works well with all hair types. The twisted chignon gives off a Victorian vibe that's perfect for your cozy spring aesthetic. Be the Jane Austen heroine of your adventure with this timeless look for curly hair.

Get ready to bloom with us as we go into spring 2023 with naturally healthy curls! Are you ready to start growing out your natural hair? Exploring low-tension hairstyle options is a great way to protect your new growth. With a little inspiration and creativity, your curls will be ready to bloom.
