What are protective styles:
Protective styles are styles that protect the hair ends. The hair ends are (protected) tucked away protecting them from drying out. The tucked away ends are moisturized and sealed with oil. These styles require no heat and does not require much manipulation of the hair. Our hair ends are the most fragile because they are the oldest. These styles protect the hair from air exposure and extreme cold / hot temps. There are so many fun options for protective styles...just have fun and be creative with it!
Options are endless!!! Buns, braids, sewin weaves, cornrows, french braids, twists, bantu knots, updos, lace fronts, french rolls, or any other style variation that tuck in the hair ends. Those with very short hair may try twists, coils, corn rolls, braids or wigging it while your hair is braided.
- Healthy hair. Give your hair a rest from heat and daily manipulation. The less you manipulate the hair, the less likely you will experience breakage.
-Length retention. The ends of the hair are the most fragile because they are the oldest strands. If the ends are properly moisturized and tucked away, less breakage will occur.
