    Question I want a new natural hairstyle!

    Well, about four months ago - I began to curl my hair using rollers.

    I start by wetting my hair, combing it through, oiling it (letting it sit for about an hour), and then curling it. Each individual bit of hair I curl, I moisten it up with some protein styling gel (the black one by Ampro), twist it, and then curl it frontwards.

    It works well and ever since I've been doing that, my hair has grown, a LOT...

    It usually took me 45 mins to an hour to finish the style a few months ago, now it takes me At Least an hour and 25 mins..it's a lot of work on my arms, which doesn't bother me too much to be honest.

    This is how it looks like now, it used to be a bit shorter. :

    But now my hair is longer now (a little longer than my neck when the curls are stretched out), and I'd really like to try out a new hairstyle!

    I don't have anything fancy. The only things I have is shampoo, conditioner, oil, the protein styling gel I mentioned, curlers, and a hair dryer. What other styles can I try that looks a bit different than the one I currently have, but can be done with the materials I mentioned?

    OP: Welcome to NP.

    When you say 'curl it' what do you mean? Perm rods?

    Have you ever tried a wash and go?

    Curl, like use the rollers. I twist my hair with the gel mixed in it and then roll it with the roller. Then when my whole head is done, I'd go to bed, wake up (since it's dry), take out the rollers and then my hair is curly once I take the twist apart.

    Your hair looks nice.
    Now that mine is longer, I've been thinking about doing something overnight with rollers + setting lotion, maybe an updo into a sort of bun/puff.
    I was also thinking it will help protect my ends.
    Since you're already on this track, maybe you could vary your look using headbands

    Hi You can try a twist out or a braidout too. Just twist with the gel and skip the rolling part. Unless you have tired of those two styles already it would be very pretty. I will try a twistout this week when I shampoo. Usually, my locs look too thin but has thickened up a lot since the last time I tried so here goes. I love that look. Keep us posted.
