Well, we are here to share some of the benefits of wearing protective styles for natural hair without weave extensions. Whether you have summer weather or colder weather rolling in, a protective hairstyle for your natural hair is a great way to preserve the health of your luscious.
Protective styles or low maintenance styles are a great way to “protect” your hair from daily wear and tear, especially important when protecting your hair in cold weather. And no, you do not have to add hair in order for a style to be considered a “protective style”. That's the reason that this article and VIDEO is focused on protective styles for natural hair without weave or extensions.
The key to protective/low maintenance styles is to protect the ends, minimize how often the hair is manipulated, and to protect your hair from environmental elements that can affect the condition of your hair.
Protective Styling Benefit #1
Some of the benefits of protective/low manipulation styles:
Low maintenance: protective/low manipulation styles are a great way as we mentioned earlier to maintain how often the hair is manipulated. Depending on your hair texture, hair porosity, hair type or density – too much manipulation could cause breakage, split ends and thinning. Therefore, a protective style is a great way to give your tresses some much-needed rest.
Protective Styling Benefit #2
Retain length: When the hair is tucked away and protected from manipulation, the atmosphere as well as getting snagged on your clothing, helps to maintain the ends. The less breakage you see the better your chances are for retaining length. TRUE length retention starts at the ends. If your hair is breaking as fast as it is growing, then you will begin to think that your hair is not growing. It’s not that your hair isn’t growing, it is simply the fact that you are not retaining length.
Protective Styling Benefit #3
Helps Retain moisture: You will be able to retain moisture better when your hair is in a protective style. The retaining of moisture starts at the cleansing and conditioning phase. It is very important to cleanse and condition the hair prior to having the hair put into a protective style. When the hair is properly cleansed, the conditioner will be able to penetrate the strands easier. Your leave-in and/or a good TGIN moisturizer prepares the hair for the styling process and depending on the quality of the ingredients – the leave in will also help the hair seal in moisture from the cleansing and conditioning process.
