Protective styling for curly hair

Summer: Protective Style

A popular conversation in our Natural Hair Love community chat revolves around Protective Styling. The consensus is this: A protective style is low traction, low manipulation and offers easy access to the scalp and hair – Otherwise it’s just style friends!

Is a hat a protective style?

Without a doubt, our favourite low manipulation protective style is a hat. It’s our go-to look for any season and a solution to protecting curly hair from extreme environmental conditions.
While summer heat is a source of joy and activated melanin for many of us, If you’re going pool side in the sun, protect your curls with a great looking hat this season.
