Whether you’ve been growing your hair out for a few months or you’ve decided to do the “big chop” not too long ago, you’ll need to know how to care for your natural hair to keep it looking its best. This is where protective style tips come in. There are a few options or keeping your hair healthy and moisturized while you’re making the transition from relaxed to natural, so it’s best to explore the styles that appeal to you and will frame your face well.Wearing hair extensions of hair pieces is a practical way to give your hair a protective style. This option can be pretty affordable in most cases, and is a great style choice if you’ve got an oval or oblong face. When you use hair pieces for your bangs and bun, you won’t have to use heat or styling tools in your own hair. This will reduce the chances that your hair will break or form split ends. If you want this protective style to look especially natural, it’s best to choose hair pieces that are very similar to the color and texture of your natural hair.
Other protective style options include getting box braids, a weave with a full or partial closure, or another style that involves hair pieces that cover all or part of your natural hair. When your hair is in a style that doesn’t require you to have to manipulate your hair often, you may find that your hair grows longer and healthy. It’s also easy to keep your hair moisturized in a protective style most of the time, especially if you’re able to oil your scalp to avoid and treat dandruff.
You can also wear wigs or head wraps as a protective style, and it’s easy to change these looks up regularly.
