style- protective styling

protective style is any style that keeps the ends of the hair tucked away and minimises manipulation. Protective styling gives the ends of our hair a break from nasty weather conditions. These styles tuck away our delicate ends and usually group the strands together, this is a method i have become used to it and it works for me,there are many hairstyles you could do but here are 3 that i love and have worked for me

Plaited Updo

Take your braids to new heights with this regal updo, created by Koudou. Inspired by Yoruba royalty, it’s a style that not only causes you to stop in awe, but also pays homage to the ancestors long before us who developed intricate and innovative patterns to take care of their natural locks.  

this hairstyle can be for a dressed up look or a simple casual look both ways you will look amazing

Hair Wrap“

An overlooked protective style is wearing a scarf,” says Lindsey. “Pulling your hair back into a loose ponytail or plaiting your hair, then wrapping a scarf in a chic style, is definitely an easy ‘protective style’ that can be worn all year round.” The best part is that you can easily switch up your look by playing with different colors and patterns depending on your mood. 

Wigs

wigs are a great option for protective styling for anyone who may want to skip the salon.

Keep in mind, though, that not all wigs are created equal, and even if you already have your own collection of hair, you will also need to take care of all that natural hair underneath. Or else you could end up doing much more harm than good.

i love wearing wigs theres no shame in wearing one, more woman should try it ,it will truly change your life.

5 Ways to Integrate Wellness Into Your Hair Routine
For today’s story, I got tips from,wellness guru and OG lifestyle blogger Geri Hirsch from

When you deep into your wellness game, one of the things you often overlook is your hair. Which is a big
mistake – huge! – because hair is the ultimate accessory, one that you can’t remove (unless you’re
Cara Delevigne). So, instead of disregarding my locks as I better my body and soul, I’m starting to
integrate my hair into my wellness practice as well.

Mask while working out
If you’re hitting up a hot yoga or Soul Cycle class, double up your workout with a nourishing hair
mask. Your hair will be sweaty already, so might as well multitask when the look of your hair
doesn’t really matter. Plus, your body and hair will both feel 100% after! Some favorites include

Sweat for volume
I don’t know about you, but when my hair is clean, it’s at its worst—I’m more of a day two or three
kinda girl. Luckily, I’ve developed a way to get there a littttle faster. It’s simple: If you must wash
your hair, try doing so right before you workout (hot yoga excluded – think light sweat workouts).
The perspiration will help create volume and will bring texture to your ends, especially if it was in a
top knot. And yes, this will require a second shower (sorryyy), but remember, it’s in the name of
good hair!

Essential oils
I’m really into essential oils for all sorts of uses (more on that here) and as it turns out, there are a
handful of benefits that directly benefit your hair. Next time you go to turn on your diffuser, consider
rubbing some of these onto your scalp:
Tea tree oil helps soothe a dry, itchy scalp
Chamomile oil soothes an inflamed, itchy scalp
Lemon oil helps with the management of dandruff
Almond and castor oil help to promote hair growth

Supplements and food
I’m pretty conscientious about eating and drinking for my skin, but the truth is, there are lots of
supplements and diet choices I could be making for my hair.
Superfoods: A healthy balanced diet is reflected in your hair so eat up! Reach for foods with a solid
mix of good fats, rich proteins, antioxidants and dense vitamin and mineral counts: almonds,
salmon, walnuts, lentils, avocados, oats, sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin seeds, berries and leafy
greens.

Massage
Massaging your scalp is not only a great form of stress release but it can actually help stimulate
hair growth. Next time you’re laying down, give your head a good rub, or better yet, ask your
companion to do it for you!
