Easy Protective Styles You Can Try Today
Asymmetrical chunky braids
One of the best things about this look is that it's super easy to do because it doesn't have to be perfect. Divide your curls into as many or as little sections as you'd like for your curl type, making sure one side has more hair than the other, then braid into chunky braids. You can tie the braids off and leave your strands loose, or pin them up for a chic updo.
Low bun with braid
There are times when you don't want to go with an elaborate or tight protective style. However, you might want to keep your hair pulled back or out of your face. Therefore, you could consider this low bun with braid. It's easy to customize and you can keep your strands loosely tied back. This type of protective style works great for curlies who might have damaged curls or hair prone to breakage.
Twists can do a lot for your curls in way of offering protection. The curls wrapped inside are protected from the elements. Therefore, your strands will be less prone to moisture loss. As a result, your curls will stay hydrated longer and will require less attention. A second bonus from twists is that when you remove your twists your curls will be well defined. This upswept twist look brings your twists up and over for a modern and fun twist on a classic protective style.
