6 Protective Styles To Stunt In This Season


The DMX Challenge would've been 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.

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.

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