There’s no better time than summertime to revamp your look and the first place to start could be your hair. Introducing a few fun protective styles into your hair routine can help keep your hair healthy as well as give you a break from manipulating your natural hair. Here are six styles for you to consider. 

Passion Twists

If you love Senegalese twists, you’ll really love wearing passion twists. A curlier alternative to the beautiful Senegalese look, these twists are great for giving you a new spin on a repeat style. With these, you’ll choose a curly alternative instead of using Kanekalon hair for an unraveled look. 

Fulani Braids with Middle Part

Fulani braids are a beautiful style no matter how you sport them, but asking your stylist to give you a middle part could help you switch up your look a bit. 

Wigs

Though wearing braids are beautiful, you may be tired of sporting them. So, if you need a break from the tension that braids put on your scalp, try wearing a wig this summer. Wearing a wig can give you the opportunity to change up your look more frequently than braids or weaves and — if you wanted to — opt to have long or short wear with it. Be sure to use the Seal It Up — Hydrating Sealing Butter to keep your hair taken care of under the wig.

Jumbo Senegalese Twists

Senegalese twists are beautiful on any woman’s hair, but they can take a little longer to achieve. If you go with the jumbo versions though, not only will you cut down on time, but you’ll also reduce the amount of tension your roots receive. And they’ll look amazing when they’re done.

Feed-In Ponytail

If you’ve been tempted to sport a feed-in ponytail, but haven’t done so yet, summer is the perfect time to do so. Essentially multiple styles in one, you can sport the high ponytail by letting the braids hang or wrap them up to give yourself a feed-in top bun. You can even make it fun by adding some color into the feed-in braids.

Double Bun Braids

A fun and cute style to wear, double bun braids are helpful if you want a braided style, but want to keep the braids off of your neck. And, it’s a style that’s awesome for anyone of any age. Like with any protective style though, be sure to keep your scalp moisturized and our Nourish My Hair — Flaxseed & Monoi oil is great to have handy for that.
