In our opinion, we think cornrows are not only a practical summer hairstyle for natural hair but also darn cute. Whether your hair is long or short you can rock cornrows this summer – just adjust the size of them accordingly. 

Editor’s Tip: You’ll want to use a moisturising spray to refresh your cornrows and an oil to maintain the health of your scalp. Look for natural water-based moisturisers like Sheen Natural Moisturising Spray and Soothe Natural Scalp Oil.
