Thinking of Natural hairstyles after washing your hair can sometimes be a headache especially if you’ve already just spent half the day detangling and deep conditioning. The last thing you want to do is spend even more time on your hair. Trust me girl I know the feeling! Wash days can feel like a lifetime.
If you are just starting out on your natural hair journey and feeling overwhelmed with all the complicated styles you see on Youtube or you simply prefer to keep it simple I got you covered!
Today I’m sharing three simple wash day natural hairstyles that you can do in 5 minutes. These styles are low manipulation and very beginner-friendly.

Sleek low Bubble band Ponytail
This style is super simple and easy to achieve. Over the last 5 months, I have practically rocked this style every Sunday after wash day. Hands down my go-to easy wash day style because it’s low maintenance, quick, and also stretches my hair! I mean what more does a girl need? All you need to achieve this look are Hairbands, rubber bands, and your favorite Gel.
I try to avoid gel on days I’m not leaving the house, my hair can still look sleek with my leave-in and moisturising products as long as I use a scarf to wrap my hair.
The crown look
Embrace the princess or queen within you with this gorgeous updo. The hairstyle is easy to execute: Put your hair in two braided pigtails on either side of your head, then section into 3 twists on either side and pin them up to make them look like a crown. This is look reminds me of the famous Frida Kahlo.
2 Curly buns
When in doubt, 2 ponytails are your friend! Part your hair down the middle and secure into two sleek buns. Add 3 or 4 twists to each side, then go ahead and do your chores, cook your Sunday dinner then come back and unravel your twists. Fix up your edges and bam your out the door! Alternatively, you can just define each section with some gel as if doing a wash and go instead if you’re not up to doing twists and you want more volume.
