It’s officially Winter and that means more Naturals are beginning to braid, twist and cover their strands in a protective style. Protective styling is the process of keeping your ends tucked away to prevent damage from everyday elements such as wind, cold or the types of clothing worn during the cooler months. Protective styling isn’t mandatory, but it does help prevent breakage and promotes length retention if healthy hair is your goal. If you want to use natural hair extensions for protective styling, here’s five companies you can support.
