What happens if I like to wear my hair down? Wearing your hair down is fine every now and then, but a protective hairstyle helps keep the much needed moisture in your hair and can protect your hair from unnecessary breaking or damage. Whether you’re working out or going to the pool, a protective hairstyle is very beneficial. Another important time to wear a protective hairstyle is at night. Protect your hair by wearing a satin or silk scarf at night to make sure the ends of your hair and your edges are not exposed. This will prevent unnecessary hair breakage from rubbing against your pillow or sheets. Make sure that you do not use bandannas or cotton material to cover your hair at night. Use silk or satin! Also, when doing a protective hairstyle, use a cloth hair binder to prevent excessive hair loss and breaking. These are just some simple tips on how to grow and regrow longer, stronger, healthier hair.
