Natural Hair Chronicles: Don’t let your Natural Tresses stop you from enjoying Summer 17’

Natural Hair Chronicles: Don’t let your Natural Tresses stop you from enjoying Summer 17’

Are you worried that your Natural Hair will limit your Summer 17′ fun? Well DON’T.. I have all hair avenues covered!

As we are all preparing for Summer 17 and hitting the gym as hard as we can, the last thing that we want to worry about is our HAIR! Hot weather means humidity and working out means…SWEAT! There are tons of protective styles that will help to alleviate the frustration of finding ways to protect your tresses and STILL be able to rock out this summer. I am hoping to see more women with natural hair coming off of the side of the pool (b/c they can’t risk the hair disaster) and jumping in and enjoying every moment of summer.

How Should I Prep My Hair Before A Protective Style?

Prepping your hair for a protective style

Deep Condition

Before you decide to tuck away your tresses, apply a deep conditioner to regain moisture loss from shampooing.

Trimming Ends

Take a close look at the condition of your ends before installing your protective style. Unhealthy and damaged ends can stunt new hair growth.


Having natural hair can be a battle when trying to find the right product for your hair type, especially one that will absorb and retain moisture.

The Protective Style Hair GAWDS Didn’t Come To Play

Those that have recently decided to join us curlies on this here Natural Hair Journey…consider yourself LUCKY! The protective styles that are currently “What’s Hot” are fast, long-lasting, and pretty darn cute! And…if you look back at the 90’s protective style hair trends, most of those exact styles have come back with a VENGEANCE. So, when I say consider yourself lucky… I mean it.. the options are endless!

If tending to your tresses is the last thing on your “to do list” for Summer 17′ then a BOMB protective style is what you need.

Hold up Hold up Hold up! *STOPS THE RECORD PLAYER* who knew that Crochet Braids would come back and be the most poppin’ protective style?! Did you see that coming? I definitely did NOT! In 2014-2015ish.. Crochet Braids resurfaced and they are currently a GAME CHANGER! *Back to your regularly scheduled program*
