doing waaaaaayyy too much?
Applying twenty products, curling, twisting, braiding combing, blowing, tonging your hair-then girl your doing waaay too much!
So much, in fact, that your probably damaging your hair, clogging your scalp, and tearing your strands.
Your hair needs care and attention- yes- not over indulgence. Hair needs to rest, air to breathe gentleness. Even combing out daily is too much, in fact, after freeing your tresses from fallen hair that sticks around create tangles, the least you comb maybe to the better health of your hair.
So, here are 3 protective styles that help you love, care your hair; into fullness, health and long desired lengths.
Loose cornrow braids with/without added hair
The looseness of the cornrows are vital to this style. Cornrows provide well needed rest to your hair and can last up to 2 weeks without redoing.
The versatility of braid patterns mean that cornrows can always be styled to suit you.
Just remember to keep the braiding loose, tight braids are a no-no!
In order to get the MAXIMUM benefits from cornrows, they are never to feel tight, -not for 2 days, 1 day or even 30 minutes. Keep them loose.
Loose fishtail braid/s
The greatest thing about this fashion trend is no matter the regrowth, no matter how long between hair appointments, as long as your hair reaches mid neck, you can rock this protective style, just add hair to the end of yours.
The looseness of this style mean the is no strain on your hairline, together with the fact that it lessens the need for heat, you can rock this style without freshly straightening, blowdrying or relaxing. On top of all that, the day-to-day wear and tear actually makes this style look better; perphaps this is the reason why fishtail braids are so popular!
see our post for how to create long fishtails on short hair
The best thing about this style is how it naturally derives from aged twist outs, all you need is great moisturisers like atrActiva detangling mist, or some water and creamy leave ins like Baba de Caracol. Then, apply and/or work through your hair carefully separating and revitalising your curls.
With this style, your hair is FREE, unrestrained, regularly moisturised and allowed to be.
Remember hair not bothered- grows.....
