6 Protective Styles To Stunt In This Season

Black women invented and mastered the art of the hairstyle switchup.


The DMX Challenge would be nothing without black women -- we invented and mastered the hairstyle switchup.

The way we do it is by wearing protective styles. Protective styles allow us to be versatile while also preserving the fragility of our natural hair. It allows us to stray away from heat and chemicals which, if used too much, can do major damage. Now, they do take time to install in many cases but once you have them, you're set for a good amount of time. Protective styles are great for reducing breakage and promoting healthy hair growth.


In order to maxmize its benefits, while sporting a protective style be sure to:

  • moisturize your hair
  • invest in conditioning spray
  • keep your scalp clean
  • don't keep it for too long

Ahead, you'll find some fly protective styles that will make fall an easy transition for you and your hair.


Passion twists have been on our radar for a while but we absolutely love how Whitney styled them in a shorter length. The loc style is perfectly boho and when executing this style, know that the hair you choose and the twisting method is crucial.
