TOP 5 PROTECTIVE NATURAL HAIR STYLES FOR WINTER

YOUR TOP 5 RECOMMENDED PROTECTIVE NATURAL HAIRSTYLES FOR WINTER

As winter approaches our hair and skin starts to suffer.  A bad hair day becomes a bad hair season with such issues as frizzy hair, extremely dry hair, breakage due to lack of moisture etc.  Winter is a good hair’s enemy as it gives us a really bad hair time.

Some of the problems we deal with range from:

  1. Dryness caused by blustery winter winds, snow, icy cold weather  making the air frigid with very little moisture causing our hair to become brittle, dry and break easily.
  2. Heated appliances all around us – these heaters have a very drying effect on our skin and air.
  3. Use of heated hairstyling tools makes matters worse with blow dryers, curling irons, flat irons etc.  Chemical processing during winter should be avoided as it depletes the protein in our hair and leaving the remaining hair structure to struggle for moisture which leads to excessive breakage at the least opportunity.
  4. Hat head is another issue we deal with as we are constantly trying to retain heat on our head so we end up stressing our strands of hair under the winter hat.

We at the Natural Hair & Extensions Professionals from World of Braiding & Extensions have been inundated with enquiries on what is best for the winter hair days.

We are proud to give you our 5 top recommended Protective Natural Hairstyles to keep the dry wind out of your hair during the winter months as well as leaving you looking glamorous for the season ahead.

Type of hair extensions:       Can be done with 100% human hair or quality synthetic hair.  We recommend Deeptwist curls from Aftress or Freetress  for synthetic hair as it is tangle free, looks natural and  last longer.

Client’s Hair type:                            Virgin Afro hair, Relaxed/chemically processed afro hair

Benefit:                                                Full volume for fine hair, easy care and styling for virgin afro hair. Preferable especially for winter as you achieve both glamour and natural hair protection from the cold icy weather.

Time to put in:                                   Takes between 7 – 9 hours to do depending on how small the sections are created, how tightly packed the style is created, the extensions type in use and the speed /experience of the stylist.

Wear Duration:                                 Between 8 – 12 weeks depending on individual care and extensions type.

Care:                                                     Cleanse scalp with dry shampoo, distilled witch hazel or wash with mild paraben and sulphate free shampoo. Where possible avoid washing these extensions as they will tangle. Apply braid spray only on scalp preferably Better Braids.  Do not use products on the extensions as it becomes too heavy and gets weighed down. It also looses its bounce and height appeal.  Do not brush only finger comb.

Price:                                                     Depending on stylist experience, expertise and hair extensions in use.
