Whether you are trying to grow out your hairline, grow back your hair, or prevent hair damage, protective hairstyles can help and make all the difference in your hair’s overall health especially now during the covid 19 lock down/quarantine period. These hairstyles not only protect your hair, they are very beautiful and also stay longer thus saving you some coins.
Twists are relatively easy way to style your mane into a protective fashion. Simply take a section of your hair ( depending on the size you want your twists to be), divide it into two and twist all the way to the end. You can use synthetic hair to add to the length that you want. This hairstyle works best on natural hair because the curl on your hair will help your twists stay intact.
This is a very classic protective hairstyle that can be done on any lengths of hair. First take a section of your hair starting at the front of your head from the root. Braid your hair as you would normally, but after you’ve braided the hair once, add hair to each staind as you continue to braid down the back of your head. When you reach the end of the scalp continue braiding down the length of your hair.
This can be worn on just about any length of hair but they are particularly stunning on those with medium and long hair. As per the name, box braids are characterized by squire hair divisions. Just section your hair into squire divisions to the size that you want, and braid normally. You just have to be careful to tightly secure the base for them to be neat.
Faux locks are a great way of enjoying out the look of dreadlocs and other permanent hairstyles without commitment. And then can even last upto 4months with proper care and maitainance.
Crochet braids refer to the style in which hair extensions are added to your hair. First, your hair is braided in cornraws. Then, the hair extensions are crocheted under your cornrows. This is ideal for those who may not want to risk damaging their hair with clip ins.
