Benefits of Protective Hairstyles

Benefits of Protective Hairstyles

It’s Hair Month at Cher-Mere and with Carnival 2020 well underway we explore the benefits of protective styling for natural hair that will allow you variety, while strengthening your hair from the roots to the tips.  

Protective styles allow your hair the luxury of relaxation for three to six weeks. They are designed to retain current hair growth, while facilitating new growth and keeping hair soft.  A protective style gives you the opportunity to try something new while your hair takes a needed break from heat and styling products, which is ideal for the current short, hectic Carnival season.

Choose styles that require little or no manipulation like braids, cornrows and buns that are tucked in.  While performing your protective style, use Cher-Mere’s INatural Leave-In Conditioner; Curling Butter; Conditioning Oil; Moisture Therapy; Hair Booster and Hair Refresher.  These products are enriched with plant-powered ingredients including olive oil, shea butter and coconut oil, which softens, detangles and moisturizes your hair, so it looks fuller and healthy.  You can also make this a part of your daily hair care regimen, once you remove your protective hairstyle.

Protective Styles Should:

Protect your ends

Not be too tight

Prevent excessive pulling

Protect your natural hair underneath

Remember, what you put into your body, also determines your hair growth cycle, so be sure to maintain a healthy diet.
