Understanding Protective Styling For Natural Hair

protective_styling

What is protective styling? When hair is not worn loosely, and consist of low maintenance keeping. 

When placing your hair in a protective style remember:

  • TANGLING from hair being untouched for long periods of time. This especially occurs in styles that take a long time to put in. therefore, taking the hair down seems pointless 
  • DRYNESS from hair that is left untouched and uncared for, for too long
  • BREAKAGE from over manipulating the hair to create elaborate hairstyles
  • TENSION styles that pull hair too tight when styling it in (buns, twists or braids). This can result in breakage and traction alopecia around the hairline.

Remember: Protective styles are a key way to help retain length. Choose the right style for you. Sometimes the more simple the style is the better. 

Thanks for visiting, loves!
