Bob hairdos for black women are usually low-maintenance, which is a plus for women who don't have a lot of time to style their hair. Styling tips may vary depending on the texture of the hair, as well as any chemical processes a woman has.
Hair needs to be well-moisturized to remain in good condition. Regular conditioning and deep conditioning are necessary. Some women may require added daily moisture in the form of water spritzes or oil-based products. Getting regular trims keeps the bob well shaped. Visiting a professional stylist is a good way to maintain a bob cut.
Avoid too much direct heat. Instead of using a curling or flat iron several times per week, wrapping straight hair at night is a healthy way to keep the hair smooth. Sleeping in a satin scarf or bonnet helps retain moisture.
Set curly bobs on magnetic rollers, flexi rods or by pin curling. Women with a natural texture can manipulate their curls with twists or braids. Bobs look good with or without bangs; it's a personal preference for many women. Choosing the best bang style depends on a woman's face shape and hair texture.
Adding a few drops of hair serum to a finished style gives hair a hint of shine without weighing it down. Women with fine hair may want to avoid serums or heavy products altogether. Instead, fine hair textures benefit from wrapping and wet setting on rollers in the largest appropriate size, as this creates more volume.
