Protective Hairstyles to Try for the Fall/Winter Season

As all women know, keeping your hair and scalp protected in the winter is hard. Even with a hat, keeping your hair protected consists of having a particular hairstyle (some take an obscene amount of practice, and others do not). 

It is vital to keep your hair protected in the winter, and chilly months because wind and cold, crisp air take all of the moisture out of your hair. This means that going out in the cold will make your hair extremely brittle and be more prone to damage. 

Protective hairstyles cut down the manipulation in your hair, which means that damage will be prevented. Most protective hairstyles consist of tucking ends and strands safely out of the way of the strong winds and freezing air. 

Here are some protective hairstyles you can try during these cold months that are approaching:
