Three Quick and Easy Protective Styles for Winter Season


Three Quick and Easy Protective Styles for Winter Season

Winter season is quickly approaching. During this time, the rough climate changes can be damaging to your hair. Not only is the temperature change hard for you, but your follicles can pay a hefty price too. If you’re searching and seeking simple remedies to combat the brisk wind and cold weather, here are three protective styles that can keep your hair safe from the freezing winds. 

Classic Braids

From classic braids, goddess braids to box braids, braids covers your hair in three strands of protection. You can wear them for up to 6 weeks without worry about your hair being shocked by the cold and brisk air. Be sure to provide your scalp with the proper oil it needs, and also give your braids an occasional TLC with shampoo and conditioner.

Faux Three- Strand Braided Ponytail

The braided ponytail is a major trend in 2020 and is so edgy, sleek and easy to style. Simply put your hair up in a ponytail, using gel and She's Happy Hair Sleek Edges to smooth your edges. Then, grab the hair extensions and attach it to your bun with a rubber band and a few hairpins to secure the ponytail. Now, braid the hair extensions and you’re off to go. Pro tip: Add gel on each section as your braid. You can achieve this style with She's Happy Hair Bundles or Kanekalon Bundles.

Goddess Locs

Goddess Locs are a classic protective style and are black-girl magic personified! On top of that, thy are relatively low maintenance. Goddess locs can be installed by wrapping and crochet methods. With wrapping, sections of your hair are either braided/twisted first or held tightly against the base extension with one hand while the other hand is used to wrap the loc extension around until it reaches your desired length. Due to how time-consuming this method is, more ready-made extensions have been produced to be installed using the crochet method.
