                   Natural hair definitely has it beauty and challenges when it comes to style versatility. One of the best ways to combat swell and frizz on shorter style choices is to make certain the hair is always filled with moisture , via conditioning or styling aids. Hair filled with moisture won’t reading absorb environmental humidity.  Another option for versatile texture and ultimate frizz control is a keratin treatment. Keratin are great for keep frizz free curls and smoothness that lasts when straight.
