How much time per day would you like to devote to your protective hairstyle? A minimum, I bet, but you want a stylish hairstyle. Well, women with frizzy hair are blessed with thick, dense hair that can form breathtaking hairstyles.
Along with a sleek, flawless look, hairstyles for frizzy hair hold the ends of your hair and protect it from the harsh elements. How to strengthen the protective effect?
Our hair really can do it all. But before you decide on your next hairstyle, make sure you know the basics.
In short, protective hairstyles help keep textured hair healthy by limiting its exposure to damage from sun, heat, cold, or over handling. Frizzy hair is already drier and prone to breakage, so protective styling can both help your hair retain moisture and grow faster.
However, it is important to make sure that your natural hair is in good condition before you do a hairstyle. It's best to have a good haircut or a good base before braiding it so that your hair can withstand any "tension".
Once you have chosen your hairstyle, you will need to pay attention to the tension on the scalp and make sure the base is not too tight. Otherwise, it can lead to traction alopecia, headaches, and scalp pain.
While many of us grew up believing that pain was the rule of the game when it came to braiding, we now know that apparent tension can actually cause hair loss, which is the exact opposite of what you want when you go for a protective hairstyle.
One of the most important things to keep your protective hairstyle looking as sharp as when you walked out of the salon is to make sure that you sleep on satin at night. Unlike cotton, satin helps your hair retain moisture and eliminate frizz, which will help you prolong the wear and tear of your hairstyle.
Bottom Line: If you don't sleep on satin or silk at night, then don't expect your hairstyle to last long.
You can also add hair oil to your routine to prevent dryness. The advice is to apply the oils directly to your scalp and temples and give yourself a good scalp massage for three minutes. Just a few drops. Do this at least twice a week and your scalp will thank you later.
There is no set rule for how long protective hairstyles last, hairstyles with extensions like box braids can usually last up to 1 month. We recommend that you do not keep your hairstyles for more than 3 weeks. If you wear them for longer, you risk dehydrating your hair and reducing its growth.
When it comes to protective hairstyles, short, medium, or full-length braids are a classic! The best part about braids? They last a few weeks and require little maintenance effort.
Some protective hairstyles like highlights can pull on your temples and on your natural hair, which is the exact opposite of what you want. To combat this phenomenon, you can opt for twists or glued vanilla. They have the same effect but are lighter and easier to wear.
It's not for nothing that box braids are one of the most popular styles of protection: they are easy to maintain, yes, but they are also very versatile. You can do lots of other hairstyles! The sections are square and larger, which coincidentally also helps reduce installation time and keep maintenance to a minimum.
Twists are a perfect example of a modern hairstyle that's easy to protect. The front part can serve as bangs and bring a nice asymmetrical element to your hairstyle. The rear is up, which adds a bit more height and a lot of class.
Part your long or short hair to the side and twist the front sections into a twist (2 strands). Hairdressing is quick and easy to do at home, without special tools. This is a great way to quickly style a hairstyle, then undo it on wash day.
Women with short frizzy hair have to deal with shrinkage after washing, which makes the hair appear even shorter than it actually is. Try individual twists or braids to stretch and protect your hair at the same time.
Two long twist braids are a great choice for medium length natural hair when it needs protection from heat, cold, and sun. The braids are perfect, feminine, and attractive.
