Protective Hairstyles For Winter 2019

Whether you like it or not, winter is back again. Freezing temperatures make wash n’ go’s a recipe for getting sick. Snow flurries lead to messy hat hair. Coming up with easy and manageable styles in the winter can be challenging. You want to stay warm, but fashionable at the same time. Here’s 4 quick styles to try this winter:

  1. 1. Knotless Braids 

    This style puts a new twist on box braids. For knotless Braids, You start braiding your own hair, slowly feeding in the braiding hair. Knotless braids are lighter and produce less product buildup than regular box braids. While you can get any length, I recommend getting them smaller. That way they can last you about 2-3 months if you take care of them.

  2. 2. Deep Wave Wig 

    If you are in love with your wash n’ go’s, this style gives you the wet and curly look that you want! Wigs are perfect if you don’t have much time to style your hair. You can twist the wig into big twists the night before, or Simply spray it with water the morning of and go! This gives you the wet look without getting sick from scalp exposure! 

  3. 3. 2 Braids 

    Two connected cornrows is one of my favorite go to styles. It’s so simple and quick! You can easily put on hats and not have to worry about having messy hat hair. Accessorize this look with gold accents and ribbon for extra pizzazz! 

  4. 4. Twists

    This style is a classic that is easy to manage and style! It can last you well beyond a week if managed correctly. Twist your hair on Sunday night. Style it in various styles throughout the week like below. Then on the weekend, twist it out! Wearing your beautiful twist out curls on the weekend is the perfect switch up. This is a 3 in one style at the least!

As you know, in the midwest, winter stays for a long time. These styles will keep your hair and scalp protected throughout the harsh winter. While winter hair styles require more preparation than those summer wash n’ go’s, it’s not the end of the world! These 4 styles will keep you looking stylish easily.
