Top 5 Hairstyles For Length Retention
Protective styling and length retention go hand in hand. Protective styling will help reduce damage and breakage throughout the length of your hair. While it might seem counterintuitive, the true way to promote length retention is not through supplements to encourage faster hair growth, but to actually protect your current hair against future damage. Protective styles are the key to growing long, healthy hair.

Ideally, a protective style for length retention will keep your ends covered, but detangled. Protective hairstyles that promote length retention will often come in the form of braids, twists or knots.

Some recommend getting an end trim every six to eight weeks, but that’s not always necessary. You know your hair better than anyone else, just take care of the trim when you start seeing the need for it.
