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.
But what is a protective hairstyle? At its core, it’s about protecting the ends of your hair, reducing tangles and knots, and preventing damage before it happens. 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.
Our top five hairstyle picks for length retention are:
1) Box braids- Box braids are a classic protective hairstyle that are low maintenance, endlessly customizable, and can last for weeks. Heres a tip- a mixture of Tailored Beauty Coconut Creme Conditioner and water in an applicator bootle is a great way to cowash hair in this protective hairstyle
3) Bantu knots are great for women not interested in adding extensions because they look good at any length. They protect ends and offer a larger, fuller curl once removed. This style can be done on stretched hair by adding Tailored Beauty Moisturizing Mists to set the bantu knots.
