Style Showcase: Head Wraps and Goddess Braids to Protect Hair Strength and Length in Winter

Posted by NI4TW on Nov 16, 2017 5:21:05 PM

It’s that time of year again when the temperatures start to dip and the air becomes dry. None of that is very good for rocking twist out or blow out styles. Cold, dry weather damages hair cuticles and leaves the hair shaft unable to retain moisture. Dry brittle hair, of course, is more susceptible to tangles and breakage. Protective styling is the key to strengthening your hair cuticles and enabling your hair to withstand the cold so that you can retain your length.

As a child growing up in Harlem, I remember how everyone had relaxed hair except me. I wanted relaxed hair too but my mother would not allow it. And that’s how I came to know about natural hair; I had to teach myself how to comb, manage and style my hair in its natural state. Later on, I did relax my hair but I decided to wear my hair naturally. Natural just worked better for me. My natural hair choice was never politically motivated; it was simply a styling preference.
