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 five protective styles that can keep your hair safe from the freezing winds.
Wigs are the easiest and most convenient protective style for winter because they can be worn whenever you want. Just cornrow your hair underneath your wig of choice and you’re good to go. Plus, you can wash and condition your hair between wig styles. One of the biggest advantages of wigs is you don’t need to spend hours sitting in a stylist’s chair waiting for you hair to be completed. Just pick your favorite one and you’re out the door!
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.
Weaves are not the first example of a protective style that springs to mind but if done correctly it can be a very effective way to keep your curls healthy this winter. Weaves have been around for a long time but have mostly been worn by people who relax their hair or wear it straight a majority of the time. The challenge for naturals is wearing weaves without having to compromise the health of their hair, so eat protectant spray or oil is a must for your 'leave out.'
