Protective styles are great ways to keep the hair you have.
Things I noticed once I added water to my hair while in a protective hairstyle:
- Protective styles retain Moisture!!
- Defined Curls
- Protective styles lead to less manipulation and less Breakage
- Protective styles will result Less Knots in your fragile hair
Some of these things seem obvious, but it wasn’t for me. Lack of water leads to dry, breakage prone hair. I recommend wetting your hair at least every 3 days… more often if possible.
