Winter is here, which means that many women will be looking for winter protective styles for their natural hair. We have what you are looking for!  We will provide some of the protective styles that you can wear this winter season so that your hair stays moisturized and continues to grow.

Wigs and Extensions

Wigs and extensions are great styles to wear all year round, and especially in the winter! Your hair is braided underneath, allowing you to wear your extensions straight or curly. Keep in mind, you do have to keep your hair underneath and scalp moisturized to prevent breakage.

Bantu knots are a bold, natural look and can be a great protective style for the woman who is looking for a low maintenance style. This style can be done on natural, heat-free hair or hair that has been blown out.   These are simple little twisted knots in a circular motion to achieve the look.  The best part about this style is you can get 2 styles in one when you decide to take the knots out! 


Cornrows are one of the easiest  protective hairstyles to rock.  You can’t go wrong with these braids because you can get them styled to suit your face shape, age and personality.  You can put them in a bun, leave them down, add color  or even get them braided  in a ponytail! If you’re looking for a style that will be easy to maintain and give your hair a break from style manipulation, then this is it!

Head Wraps

Head wraps are one of the easiest “get-up and-go” winter trends. You can style your head wrap in many different ways.  Depending on the look you’re going for you can tie a knot in the back or even or the front, taking it from a day to a night look. The fabric used for your head wraps come in infinite colors and prints, so you can feel free to accessorize with your outfits of choice.

Passion Twists

Passion twists are a very popular  protective style. The hair is braided down and then you add the crotchet braids or hair overtop. Instead of spending hours just for braids this method is easy and simple. 

Marley Twist

Marley twist is typically a  more natural-looking tyle of twists. This is mainly due to the hair used for Marley twist being much lighter and flexible.  When wearing this style there is no tension on the hair which makes it a great protective hairstyle for the fall.

Regardless of the winter protective style you decide to wear,  it’s critical that you keep your hair moisturized underneath so that it doesn’t become brittle and break off.  A great way to keep your hair moisturized is by spraying with water (or a leave in spray) and then applying oil.  The oil will help to seal that moisture in.  We recommend using the VoiceOfHair PureFix Hair Elixir to keep your har and scalp moisturized under your protective styles.  This oil is made up of 25 natural ingredients that help promote a healthy scalp and seal in moisture!
