Looking for a protective style that won't damage your edges this winter? We have exactly what you are looking for.

During winter, styling your hair can be a tedious process. This is why, if possible, you can ditch the long washdays for a protective style that will grow your hair and keep your edges healthy.

The best style is plaiting your hair underneath wigs or as cornrows.

When your hair is plaited, there is low manipulation, you do not have to comb it daily.

This is why the hair generally tends to get longer because there is far less breakage than if you were combing it daily.

Plaiting is great as a protective style when you take care of the plaits, you make sure you wash it and keep it moisturised.  Depending on the type of plaits you have, you can even deep condition the hair.

Here are few protective styles to try this winter.
