5 Protective Styles to try this Winter
Your hair deserves the absolute best this winter season. Here are five protective styles that you should give a try before the spring season arrives.
It really doesn’t matter what the season is, box braids are a great protective style to rock year-round. Whether you’re wearing them waist-length or in a bob, with color or without, box braids are a beautiful and timeless style for everyone. When wearing box braids though, you’ll want to be sure that keep your hair moisturized. Our Half & Half – Hydrating Silkening Hair Milk is a great product to keep handy for that.
Fulani Braids with Beads
If you’ve always wanted to try Fulani braids but just haven’t built up the courage, this winter is the perfect time. If you have tried them, but are looking for a way to take it to the next level, try adding a few beads at the ends. It doesn’t matter the length of the braids or the color of the beads, whatever you choose, you’ll look amazing. Be sure to keep your scalp and hair nourished while in the style by using the Nourish My Hair – Flaxseed & Monoi oil.
Bantu knots are known to be two styles in one to many of those with natural hair. And while you can be as creative as you want to be with your knots — which protect the ends of your hair — you’ll want to make sure that you’re using a good holding gel to keep them in place. Aunt Jackie’s Ice Curls Glossy Curling Jelly is the perfect product for that.
Similar to cornrows, flat twists are a great protective style to rock for the winter months. And, they’re even easier to achieve. Our Curl La La – Defining Curl Custard can be used to create this look.
Looking for a low maintenance and easy style to rock a few days out of the week? Try a sleek low bun. You can opt for a middle part or side part — both equipped with pins or clips — to dress up the look. Be sure to use our Quench – Moisture Intensive Leave-In Conditioner to keep the moisture flowing.
