Benefits of Washing Your hair when wearing a Protective Style for more than 3 weeks
The Purpose of Protective Styling is to give your Natural Hair a Break from Constant Styling, Daily Manipulation, and for most of us help with Length Retention.
But in order to maintain Healthy Natural Curly Hair when in a Protective Style, you must still take care of your Natural Hair in that Protective Style meaning sticking to your regimen, Keeping your scalp clean and keeping your hair moisturized. Even though your ends are tucked away the Synthetic Fibers of the Braiding hair will suck all the moisture out of your hair causing it to become dry and brittle. Once that happens when it’s time to take out your braids you will have more breakage which leads to NO LENGTH RETENTION.
Tips on how to maintain your Twistout Style on Natural Curly Hair
*You can do this Style on Natural or Transitioning Hair but do remember Transitioning Hair will not curl at the ends properly like your Natural hair would, So make sure to use some form of rods to set your ends for better curl definition 🙂
