3. USE BOTH PROTECTIVE and LOW MANIPULATIVE HAIR STYLES

Using both of these methods are a good way to promote growth for your hair.

Protective styles are hair styles that require you not to have any harmful contact with your hair. My most recent favorite form of protective hair style is wearing a lace front wig. Having my hair cornrowed under the wig and not having to comb it, apply heat, or mess with it daily can help with growth.

Other forms of protective hair styles include: braids, weaves, and twists.

Low manipulative hairstyles on the other hand require a bit more work. Where protective hairstyles prevent you from harming your hair completely, with low manipulative hairstyles you still may face the risk of harming your hair. But the point of these hairstyles is to have your hair fixed with as little doing as little damage as possible.

Examples of low manipulative hairstyles are doing a fresh braid, twist out, or setting your hair in rollers and these styles can last a few days. Another example can be just putting your hair up in a bun, ensuring to tuck the ends away.

USE as LITTLE HEAT as POSSIBLE
