5 Protective Styles for Natural Hair

Natural hair isn’t too much work if you equip yourself with the knowledge you need to take care of it. Your hair is a part of you, and like other parts of your body, knowing how to care for it goes a long way toward long-term growth goals. The constant manipulation of your strands can cause so much tension. Sometimes, a little rest is good and allows for good blood flow and sustained growth!

Here are five hairstyles that can let your scalp rest from daily manipulation:

  1. Wigs - hear us out, edge warriors! A neat braid-down can let you throw on and throw off a wig at your convenience. It also enables you to try other styles instead of resorting to damaging your hair. And, for those who fear their edges, get this: headband wigs—total Game Changers.
  2. Drawstring Ponytails are quick and easy hairstyles that let you do something elegant without too much effort. While sleek ponytails require a lot of brushing and gel, we recommend braiding down your hair into a cute design so that it is both gathered together and less likely to need another battle of sleeking it down the following day!
  3. Two-strand Twists - we love these! Twists are a great way of simply letting your hair be without adding too much tension. It’s also an excellent method of detangling and ensuring your hair is moisturized! Also, have you ever heard that older twists look fantastic? Throw in a kinky curly drawstring ponytail, and you’ve got a cute little situation going on!
  4. Crochet Hairstyles - crochet braids, twists, faux locs, etc. You can’t go wrong with crochet! It’s a great way of getting versatility without manipulating your hair too much. Just be sure to hydrate your scalp correctly.
  5. Flat Twists - Flat twists are a little less demanding on our roots than braids and look beautiful. They provide easy access to nozzle tips, so keeping your scalp hydrated and oiled is easy to do!

I’ve been natural 13 years and it has been a disappointing process. I’ve tried other hair growth oils and other treatments. I’m currently doing the Redken treatment and have been very happy, but it’s getting cooler and my hair gets dry. I chose to try this the same day, I was going to break my promise and go back to the “creamy crack” man. After the current news on fertility and pregnancy loss due to “creamy crack”

My daughter introduced me to this product a while back. I saw it was doing wonders for my bald spots and my broken off hair. I had lost almost my whole head of hair, working with these products has helped tremendously and I have seen great results. I now get the products myself and will continue on this heavenly route to success for my hair growing process. Thank you for making a product that has been able to help my hair get back to its natural look. God bless and keep up the good work . Thank you again


Can I use the products on my two years old daughter hair??


I’ve never had a problem with hair growth but my hair has ALWAYS been extremely thin as far back as I can remember. I made the HUGE mistake of relaxing and coloring my hair too close together, and as a result, I suffered huge amounts of daily hair loss and breakage. I tried several products to try to grow my hair back without success. I saw this product and thought, well it can’t hurt especially with it being comprised of African herbs. Long story short, my hair is now much stronger and healthier than it has been in years. My balding edges have started growing back and I have the length I had in my early twenties. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these products and recommend them to everyone I know fighting hair loss and other hair issues.
