Protective Styles for Kids

While I understand you want your child’s hair to last for days without having to stick your fingers in their hair. But please do not ruin your child’s hairline. Tight pulling of the hair can damage the hair line causing their hair to break off. Remember they are still growing and so is their hair. Allow their hair to grow to its fullest without distracting the growth with excessive manipulation of the hair. Remember if grown women can lose their hair line due to consistent manipulation than surely it can happen to a little girls hair.  Be easy with the braids. If you’re going to braid their hair make sure it is not too tight around the edges. Make the braids loose enough that it does not cause hair loose for a young child. Let them keep their edges please. Trust me your baby girl will appreciate your effort in saving their edges when they get older.

Protective Styles Prevent Hair Damage

While my hair is down my back, I must say I am an avid wig lover. Why on earth would I dye my hair one day, cut it the next day and then try to wear it long another day. I love changing my look up, I might want to rock a short wig and the next week rock a long feathered wig (depending on the outfit I am wearing that week, I like to rock a sexy hair to match my outfit). Meanwhile, my natural hair is tucked away in different protective styles. I usually let my hair take a break, especially in the summer because the weather is so humid and flat ironing my hair is non-negotiable so I wear wigs in the summer and in the fall I wear my hair out because well, I have missed my hair of course.

Protective Styles Prevent Hair DamageThe protective styles I use for my wigs are cornrows on wet hair and I use a deep conditioner of my choice or I will twist my hair in two pigtails and wrap them around in a crown-like design to apply my wig. I am a firm believer the less you leave your hair alone the better off it will be. Consistent manipulation of the hair would only cause more strands to fall out such as combing or brushing the hair daily would only add stress to the hair, making it weaker and more likely to snap off when doing different styles. I would also say that consistent use of heat especially a flat-iron can cause severe heat damage to the hair. Simply pick a style for the week and try to stick with it for that week and switch up to something else for the following week. I’ve heard women saying they style their hair differently every day, maybe that works for them but it certainly doesn’t work for me.

Protective Styles Prevent Hair DamageAnother word of advice regarding protective styles makes sure you do what is best for your hair. Please remember that what works for one does not always work for another. There are all kinds of textures of natural hair, so when you’re doing protective styles make sure you’re doing a style that compliments your hair and that last greater than four days so you don’t have to worry about having to re due a whole new style.

Leave a comment and tell us what is your favorite protective style.

Hair Tips and Protective Styles

Hair tips are important when you are a natural. However you must be cautious of the natural hair community. All advice does not fit all. Kinky hair does not function as the same as someone with a loose curl pattern. Understanding that you have to set realistic standards for yourself to gain the best results for your hair journey. I guess what I’m trying to say is don’t try to use the same method someone with a different hair texture does otherwise you are setting yourself up for failure. This post is designed to help you understand realistic standards for yourself. Protective styles for me has been key to my hair journey. I never expected my hair to grow in seven days and I don’t set unrealistic standards for myself.

Yes protective styles is key to a successful hair journey. When you keep your hands out of your hair and let it do its thing without consistently combing and brushing your hair daily than you will certainly see results over time, but not over night as some will claim. These magic pills that you are suppose to take to grow your hair in like 72 hours is a simple book of lies. You have to be naive to believe those type of hype but unfortunately, it yields to be true for some women.

There is one pill that I will not mention but it catered to women of course and especially African American women. Well these pill was offered to women, mostly celebrity women who already have long hair and it gave other women the idea that this pill will grow your hair their length. It would have been different had to gotten a bald headed chick, but instead they got Celebrities to endorse this pill which was designed to entice people to buy. I’m who wouldn’t want Toya Wright’s long locs. But other women started doing a vlog on their experience and I notice they stated they as well as showed their hair were brittle and had severally thinned after using some of these so called magic pills. The point is be careful who you take hair tips from and most importantly remember eating healthy and protective styles are the key to successful hair.

Protective Styles and Avocado Oil

Protective Styles and Avocado oil

As a natural for the past 20 years, I have been their, done that and tried it. But what I tried was avocado oil and I detest it. Literally. I saw all those raving reviews on how avocado works wonders on natural hair and it helps your hair grow soooo long. Perhaps it worked for the women in those videos but not me. I watch at least over a hundred videos on the wonders of avocado, as I watch YouTube videos to get the bulk of my reviews before purchasing a product. I marched myself right over to Whole Food to purchase a bottle of avocado oil to use for my protective styles, brought it home, washed my hair and used avocado oil as a deep conditioner. As I was placing the avocado oil on my hair and scalp it dripped on my face and of course I wiped the oil from my face. Fast forward three days later and I had face full of bumps from the avocado oil that dripped on my face. It took me at least a full month to get rid of the bumps on my face and it was time consuming. Not to mention the oil did not take well to my hair and ended up drying my hair out. When I say every oil was not created equal, I mean it!

I became very uncomfortable with trying any new oils and I was not feeling some of these so called YouTube reviews. I had to learn the hard way how to not take everything seriously when watching so of these Youtubers rant and rave about how certain products works wonders on your hair. As a matter of fact, I encourage you to be cautious of some of these reviews as some of them are a ploy to get in your pockets and believe the hype around a product that might be crap but they convinced you that your hair will be laid like to the Gods, bullsh**.

My hair was dry and it was a disaster. I will be the first to tell you that our hair textures are different which means oils remind differently for those with various hair textures. I have been using vitamin e oil and he works amazing for my hair (this post is not sponsored by vitamin e oil lol). Using an oil along with a protective style keeps your hair moisturized and allows your hair to flourish but you have to find the right oil. Do not believe the hype that some people put on by those oils, use your better judgement. Try them on your hand first see out it reminds after a few days and next try on your hair. When you finish taking your hair out of a protective style, evaluate if your hair is dry or not, if it was dry I will trash the oil and try another.

Protective Styles and How They Grow Your Hair

If you’re in the process of growing the relaxer out of your hair, or if you’ve been natural for a while and want to make sure that you’re being especially gentler on your hair, you’ve probably heard of protective styles. These styles help to grow your hair, because the hair is shielded or protected, so you won’t have to manipulate it by combing and brushing every day. The styles that you choose for protective purposes can keep your hair from breaking as well, since you won’t have to apply heat to your hair to style it.

Protective Styles and How They Grow Your Hair

Some of the most common protective style to choose from include braids and twists. For these styles, your natural hair is twisted or braided to combine with synthetic hair. So, when you style your hair, you won’t have to use a comb or brush for your strands. Instead, you can just pull your hair into ponytails or twists without putting too much pressure on the hair. These styles are ideal because your hair is left alone to grow at its own pace, and isn’t interrupted by heat styling, harsh chemicals, or combing/brushing.

This is also another reason why getting a full or partial weave may be an option when it comes to protective styles. When you get a weave, you can get tracks that are in the style you want, and the hair can be pre-curled or waved so that you won’t have to use heat as long as the weave is in your hair. When your hair has a break from curling irons or flat irons, your natural hair will have time to grow and flourish, and when you take the weave out, you’ll likely notice significant growth.

Protective Styles and How They Grow Your Hair

Be sure to wash your hair with a dry shampoo and keep your scalp moisturized while you’re wearing a protective style, since this will keep your hair healthy during the growth process. Keep in mind that you’ll need to oil your scalp often, since black hair is naturally dryer. However, do a skin test to see which oils are best for you, since some oils can cause an allergic reaction. Avocado, almond and olive oils tend to work for some black hair types, but test the oils out before saturating your hair just to be sure.

When it comes supplements for hair growth, remember that all supplements are not created equal. Confirm that the supplements are made from quality ingredients before using them. Biotin supplement could cause severe breakouts, even if you take them with plenty of water, so reduce your intake to once a week if you notice any changes in your skin.

Protective Styles for New Naturals

If you’ve gone natural recently, you may need some assistance when it comes to caring for your hair and making sure your tresses are healthy and looking their best. Whether your hair is still growing out or want to know how to care for your full head of new curls, here are a few protective styles that will keep your crown intact.

YouTube vlogger IamTraeh has lots of great ideas for wearing protective buns, using synthetic hair that is blended with your natural hair to create a cute and flirty look. For this look, your natural hair is gathered in a small ponytail at the top of the head and the synthetic hair is wrapped around the ponytail to form a full bun.

Natural Metra from YouTube also has some great suggestions for protective styles for natural hair. Her style suggestion works on natural hair that has been blow-dried. The hair has been formed into a double twist that is braided toward the back and frames the head like a crown. After the hair is twisted, it is pinned at the nape of the neck to hold the twists in place.

YouTube hair vlogger Michelle B also has an up-do you may want to try. She suggests blow-drying the hair on low heat to avoid damage. The hair is moisturized and parted on the side and the front of the hair is flat-twisted. The front section of the hair is then pinned up while more moisture is added to the back of the hair, along with an edge control product that works for natural hair. The back of the hair is also flat-twisted, and the front of the hair is untwisted to reveal curly bangs with more definition before being pinned.
