What are protective hairstyles?

Anytime your coily ends are tucked away, you are wearing a protective style. I say this because the ends of your hair are the most fragile and must be taken care of in order to retain length. Black women in particular have so much versatility when it comes to hair because of protective hairstyles. Some of my favorite protective styles are braids. They are low maintenance and do not require a lot of manipulation. With braids you don’t have to worry about applying heat to your hair. With low manipulation hairstyles, hair growth is not too far behind.

Popular protective hairstyles:

  • Box-Braids
  • Cornrows
  • Two-Strand twist
  • Three strand twist
  • Marley Twist
  • Havana Twist
  • Faux Locs
  • Sew Ins
  • Senegalese braids/twist
  • Buns
  • Top Knot
  • Pig tails
  • and the list goes on….
