With the winter season closely approaching, protective styling becomes extremely popular amongst healthy hair growers! Whether you protect your hair to shield it from harsh weather climates, to retain length, or simply take a break from styling your hair, protective styling is a must if you wish to grow and maintain a healthy head of hair.
To wear a protective style simply means to shield or cover. It is essentially keeping the ends of your hair tucked away. Our ends are the oldest and most fragile part of our hair. The protection of our ends is imperative if we wish to grow and maintain a healthy hair length. (You can also opt for ultimate protectective styling from heat and excessive handling due to styling by covering all of your hair.)
When we protect the ends of our hair, we have fewer to no split, or frayed ends. Did you know, the more you protect your ends, the fewer trims you'll need, and the longer your hair will become? If you answered yes, then you're already ahead of the game! If not, then what are you waiting for? It's time you made a healthy hair decision, and choose a protective style!
Here are a few options:(most extensions should stay in no longer than 2 months at a time when you're protecting for health)
- Braid Extensions(medium sized, not too tight )
- Two strand twists extensions
- Wigs (full cap or 1/2)
- Full sew in weaves( not too tight please)
- Faux Pony tails
What's your favorite protective style? (mine is obvious!)*Happy Healthy Hair Growing!!!
