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.
