Protective Hairstyles to Try This Winter

By Taylor Johnson

As winter and colder weather approaches, now is the time to protect your natural hair. Cold temperatures can damage and have negative affects on your hair. It is more likely for your hair to dry up and shrink from the lack of moisture in the air.

Protective styles are stylish, fun, and require little to no maintenance. It is important to also  remember that you should still be taking care of your hair by washing and deep conditioning it. Here are a few hairstyles you should try out!

If braids and twists aren’t your thing, then another protective hairstyle is wigs! Wigs are probably the easiest protective style since you can take them off and put them on whenever you want.
