The summer is quickly approaching!  And with summer comes those long hot summer days, high percentages of humidity and lots of outdoor summer activities, like swimming, camping, and bike riding.  Although the summer time is full of exciting activities, those activities don’t always allow the ladies to stay cute all day. No worries. There is a solution: protective styling! Protective styling are heat free styles that protect your hair and your ends. Protective hairstyles also help to retain length and encourage hair growth. This is definitely something that women want to take advantage of.

Not only will you be cute for the summer, but you will be protecting and maintaining healthy hair! Now, I’m sure you’re wondering what hair styles are considered protective hairstyles. The list of styles are endless but here are a few.



1) Bun      2) Faux locs      3)Full Sew-in      4)Braids

There are several naturalistas that have taken Youtube by storm and are well educated on how to achieve these looks. Check out some of my favorites: Mahogany Curls, Yolanda Renee, Naptural85 and TheChicNatural just to name a few.

Remember, these are not the only protective styles out there! Get creative and do what works best for you!
