What is protective styling?

Protecting your hair and ends by wearing them tucked away on a long-term or short-term basis.

Short-term protective styling allows you to still have access to your hair. You are also required to style your hair every few days.

Long-term protective styling is when you don't have any access to your hair and there's no need for styling.

Protective styling helps protect relaxed or natural hair from dryness and breakage which can result in length retention and healthy ends.

Doing long-term protective styling also provides the benefits of protecting your hair from natural elements such as the sun and wind.
