The longer your hair gets the more time consuming wash day will be. When your hair is at a shorter length you can choose to cleanse your hair every three days or so and suffer very little bothersome consequences.

Since tangling is not a big issue at this stage, you can wear your hair out free as often as you like. You can do styles like twists and cornrows for a style change, but they are not must to keep your hair healthy.
#4 Less Time Spent on Hair
From washing to styling, short natural hair is definitely less time consuming. Unless you plan on doing something a little bit more fancy with your hair, the general maintenance is a breeze compared to what’s down the road.
