PROTECTIVE STYLES FOR NATURAL HAIR


I am 35 years old but have been natural since I was 17 years old. But when I went off to college I did not have to time to keep my hair up and I did not want to pay for perms nor did I want to put one in my hair, so I cut all my hair off. Had a beautician who used to do my hair for nine years, she did not know how to take care hair of natural hair which left me getting micro braids and that was not very healthy for my hair either given that it took out half my edges lol.

My career has me occupied, leaving little room for hair care but I had to set time aside to finally take care of me. I of course no longer go to a beautician, instead I take care of my hair on my own. Taking care of my own hair has yield great benefits as you see below how my hair has grown. I have a few protective styles I want to share with you! Here are just a few mentioned below but first let me show you my hair growth!!!


My Top most Favorite hair styles(this is my real hair)


My career has me occupied, leaving little room for hair care but I had to set time aside to finally take care of me. I of course no longer go to a beautician, instead I take care of my hair on my own. Taking care of my own hair has yield great benefits as you see above how my hair has grown. I have a few protective styles I want to share with you! Here are just a few mentioned below.

I also use wigs as a protective style. It is very important to keep your hands out of your hair. Consistent manipulation of the hair all the time can cause breakage, loss of edges, and dryness. Trust me I know, my hair has been through it all. Protective styles are designed to protect the hair from excessive heat damage, excessive product build up due to styling the hair multiply times throughout the week. It does not matter whether you want your hair to remain a short length or your intentions are to grow your hair long using wigs holds a great benefit in protecting your hair.

Just a side note, here are a few things to consider when maintaining healthy hair.
Water: Drink lots of water preferably doctors recommend 8 glasses a day. The best way I keep up with my water intake was buying a contigo travel mug which holds up to 32 of water, that averages 4 classes of water. I drink out of my contigo travel mug twice a day( one in the morning which last a couple of hours during the and another in the evening which last until bedtime) and I fill it up to 32oz of water which gives me my full eight cups of water. Although I may still drink an organic juice of my choice, I still make sure I drink my eight cups using my contigo travel mug.

Vitamins: I do take a few vitamin supplements starting with women’s day gummies. They have biotin in them, along with B12 and B6( I take five days a week). Vitamin D was recommended (I take once a week) by my doctor due to me not getting enough of sun and I take a biotin once a week(I found that if I take more than once a week I risk getting acne, so I cut it down to 1x a week. I found even with me drinking enough water, I would still get acne).

Most importantly I eat organic foods only. Artificial flavor or any food coloring for that matter is not healthy for the body. These simple steps mentioned has had a tremendous impact on my body. I notice when the body is taken care of my hair and skin has flourished greatly. I hope this helps someone.
