Growing Hair with Protective Hair Styles


Protective styles are a great way to protect the natural hair from excessive use of heat appliances. In order for these protective styles to help with the growing process, they must be properly cared for. You can't buy a Mercedes & expect it to stay looking & running well without proper maintenance; therefore, why expect to get a protective style & not maintain it. Protective styles are low maintenance styles, not no maintenance styles.


The way the hair is installed makes a big difference. Weave can be installed through sewins, glue-in, or braids. Sewin styles are much healthier than glue in styles.  When getting braids, It is best to get some that are not too small. Sometimes getting the braids to small, like micros, seems to leave edges thin after taken out.  It may be because people tend to leave them in too long. Try larger braids; such as cornrows, box braids, goddess braids or a sewin.


 Here are some hair tips for maintaining protective styles:

1-Make sure hair is conditioned well before installing hair extensions.
2-Protect hair while wearing extension by shampooing & applying a conditioner. 
3-Make sure that the hair stays hydrated by using an oil sheen or braid spray, whichever works best for your type of hair. Neglecting this can cause the hair under the braid or weave to become dry & brittle; therefore causing breakage.
4-Don't wear small braids longer than 2-3 months.
