What hairstyle have you been wearing and or loving this week? I have been loving my protective 2 strand twists.
The question of the day is concerning protective hairstyles and how long they should be worn. Do you often wear protective hairstyles? What is your favorite protective style? How long do you wear them for? How do you care for your hair while it is in such a hairstyle?
I will go ahead and answer these questions as well. Even though protective hairstyles main purpose is to protect your hair and maintain moisture, if kept too long it can also ruin your hair, hairline and scalp. I usually keep my protective styles in for a week tops. I think if you leave it in longer it can be dangerous for your hair as well as your scalp. Leaving your hair in these styles for long periods of time can deplete your hair of moisture, develop a stench as your hair have less breathing room and air passing through as well as create scalp issues.
I like to oil my hair while it is in protective styles. I also change my hairstyle quite often and do not let my hair sit there in neglect. This is just what I do when my hair is in protective styles it may var from person to person because it depends on your hair and it's needs.
NB: You may also suffer from receding hairline or thinning hairline if you pull your hair too tight when you do these styles. Try to be very careful.
