it on a day to day basis? What styles would you wear. Whether at wok, going out, at home, on the beach, to the supermarket, etc. I'm curious. 

Sorry I can't find a better quality pic.

Cutting/relaxing are options. Don't limit yourself. If you woke up with this hair tomorrow morning, what would you do with it?

Probably but I am not really good with styling hair unless its something simple, probably get a good blowout by a pro. I could see wearing with a part right down the middle. 

Do you think with some products and manipulation the natural curls could be more defined?

As for myself, I don't know if I could deal with it. I would probably wear braids most of the time. The length and thickness combined with the texture would be too much for me.

Even though I do admire it, I wouldn't have time to deal with that.

Look at how this girl wears her hair.

The chick from Urban Bush Babes' twin. I think when people's hair gets a certain legth/thickness, they kind of give up on it stylewise.

Its only so much you can do with all of that unless you are really really creative. Maybe its an excuse but in the morning I don't have a hour to be fiddling around with my hair.

Day to day would be twists or cornrows back into a bun/puff. I would love to braid up one side, pick out the rest and wear it all glamorous and huge. Watch the jealous suckas stare lol. For serious that hair has me drooling Geek

I would wear it just like that.  In fact, I'm wearing a Lacefront right now that is similar to that style. 
Or I would wrap it up in a beautiful scarf.

twist-outs, buns, scarves, and just like it is in the pic... I'd love to have this much hair... it would be a lot of work, but it's nice.

perfect 2 strand twists with no flyaways--so maybe just a little conditioner and gel.

twist outs, braid outs, twists, buns, heat straightening...
I would kill for her hair. I would definitely put in the work.

For work - probably up in a bun or a long big twist down the back. But no heat or chemicals to mess it up!

Otherwise, I would wear it just like that.

There are a zillion products out there to moisturize/daily condition natural hair like that! I use some of them myself daily!


Posted By: CLCNY20

Condition, detangle with Denman brush with conditioner, and coconut oil and braid it in big two-strand twists overnight. Carefully unravel in the morning.

If I'm just going to work, I'd bun/high ponytail it .

Wear it just like that in the pic with a part in the middle. DATS IT.

Looks like Marley hair.

If it is real, it wouldn't do well just worn "out" on a regula basis, unless she wanted some free form locs. Detangling would be an all evening event.

I would probably to twists for 2-3 weeks, wear it in a twistout bun/updo for a couple days, before co-washing again.

if you just do the water test and figure out your porosity you can save a lot of money and time by not buying products that just wont work on your hair and which techniques might be best for you.

Twists 75% of the time, twist outs 25%

Honestly, I'd prolly cut it to apl.  The length and thickness = more hours/time then I care to spend doing it.

My hair would stay twisted or braided up. Or in a bun. I don't think I'd be able to handle my hair if it were that long AND that texture.

The best one I can think of off the top of my head is S Curl No Drip sealed with shea butter. It will leave your hair moisturized for daaaaayysss on end. It's heavy but my hair is coarse, though, so it can carry it.
