Protective styles are a great way to help grow your hair out without adding more damage. They can also be a cute way to keep your hair nice with all the rain and humidity that comes with the summer weather.
Marley Twists are extremely popular this summer. It’s an easy hairstyle that looks good on basically anyone. It can also be very affordable depending on where you go to get them done. All that’s needed is marley hair (make sure you don’t get regular kanekalon hair because it will be too silky and not hold the twists) and your ready to go. Also, spice up your do with some peek-a-boo color.
Bantu Knots. This is my absolute favorite hairstyle. Bantu knots create the perfect little curl when done correctly (check out some bantu knot out fails).
Poetic Justice Braids This was the hairstyle of the summer last year. Everywhere you looked girls had the poetic justice braids. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t still rock the braids this summer. Just make sure you slick down them edges girl.
Two strand twists are easy and you can do them right at home while sitting on your bed watching Scandal. If you’d like, you can do a twist out for a cute, fun hairstyle.
Flat twists Just like the two strand twists you can where the flat twists as they are or take them out. If you do decide to leave them in, it is a great way to create a cute updo that would be great for that interview you have this weekend.
Weaves I didn’t want to add weaves to the list but to be honest, having a weave is a really good way to protect and grow out your hair. Now, I’m not saying just slap a weave on your head and forget about the hair that’s growing from you scalp. In order to get the full benefit from wearing a weave, you have to take good care of what’s underneath. This means deep conditioning frequently and keeping your hair underneath your weave completely moisturized. Plus, with a weave you can switch up your hairstyle however you want without affecting your natural hair.
