Fall and winter bring changes in nature, fashion, and even hair maintenance! For instance, going outside with damp hair can cause you to become ill. Also, the cold, dry weather can extract moisture from your hair, making it brittle and prone to breakage. But wearing protective hairstyles prevents the weather from having such harsh effects on your delicate hair.
The main purpose of protective styling is to preserve your hair’s health and length. Protective styles such as braids and twists, wigs and weaves, and head scarves and hats require minimal manipulation to your own hair and allow the strands to be covered from the cold. However, moisturizing your hair and allowing it to breathe are still vital.
Tip: To avoid stressing your strands and scalp irritation associated with repetitive styling, try rotating regularly between different protective styles.
