5 Protective Styles that Take the Stress Off Your Hair

Share this and help a friend SLAY!

If you haven’t heard, one of the latest hair trends is going natural. For some of us, that’s old news. But for others, the natural hair trend is very new and very scary. And since the weather associated with spring is usually a great time to try out looks (mostly because if it turns out terribly, you can just go out into the rain and start again), that means you’ll also be trying out new protective styles. Protective styles are used to stretch your hair while helping to form even curls and allowing the moisture to soak in. But they don’t have to only be helpful — they can be super cute and stylish, too. Here’s one tip. If you are one who enjoys wearing protective styles, you should try using the PureFix Hair Elixir which is a great scalp moisturizer (while promoting growth). It moisturizes and nourishes hair to support healthier hair growth even when you’re wearing a protective style.

Here’s a number of protective styling options you can choose from!

WIGS

A wig will make you look good and feel better. Caring for your appearance is not being vain. We express our individuality through our hair and styling it is part of our daily routine. If you’re suffering from hair loss or if your hair is not in good condition, a wig will help you to continue with a look that feels familiar.

SEW-INS WEAVES

Sew-ins are a form of weave for the hair that you can actually sew into your hair rather than glue onto your scalp. If you’re going to wear a sew-in while you transition, you’ll want to wear one that covers all of your hair and leaves none of it exposed. This will also save you from having to worry about blending the sew-in with your natural hair color, type, and texture.

CROCHET EXTENSIONS

Crochet braids are hair extensions that are literally crocheted into your own hair (braided into cornrows) with a latch hook tool. This type of hairstyle has been popular in the black hair community since the ’90s. But today’s version is done more creatively–from the type of hair used to installation techniques to styling.
