1. Bantu knots
These are the perfect go-to for battling the heat while maintaining beauty.
Bantu Knots is a hairstyle with origins from the Zulu tribe of South Africa, where the hair is sectioned off, twisted, and wrapped in such a way that the hair stacks upon itself to form a spiralled knot.
With this hairstyle, you don't have to bother about hair getting in your face or touching you in the heat.
2. Pixie cut
This can be worn as a sew-in or even better, as a wig.
The pixie cut comes in different variations and is also perfect for slaying in hot weather. While a full fringe look is advised against, you can go for a side fringe or a very cropped full fringe.
It is short, easy to manipulate, and most importantly, gives you room to enjoy the cool breeze.
Unarguably, one of the top picks for hot weather.
Cornrows are perfect for the heat because it gives your scalp ample room to breathe. You can decide to use your natural hair for the style or add hair extensions if you're a fan of long lengths.
4. Ponytail/gel pack
If you're a fan of hairstyles that keep away from your face then this is perfect for you!
The hairstyle which requires gel and hair extensions added at the bun of your packed hair is an easy hairstyle to rock in hot weather.
And when the ponytail begins to bother you at the back, you can always wrap it up in a high bun!
This is what you can refer to as the braided version of ponytail/gel packing hairstyle.
Just like cornrows, it gives your scalp room to breathe between the plaits and can also be wrapped up or let hanging - depending on how you like to slay.
