Think of all the things you could do if you didn’t spend so much time in front of the mirror styling your natural hair. You could probably have responded to some of the hundreds of emails you’re yet to open or finalize that deal, so why not opt for a protective hairstyle?

Protective hairstyles save you the time of daily blow-drying, stressful combing, and most importantly, they keep your ends carefully tucked away. Protective hairstyles also reduce damage to your natural hair from regular manipulation and heat.

Whether you opt for single braids, cornrows, weaves, or wigs, it is a matter of choice. But we recommend single braids and cornrows, which allow your scalp to breathe better. Another plus? These hairstyles require very little daily upkeep and also help the hair to retain its moisture.

Cornrow braided hairstyles like the one seen above on South Africa’s Vanessa Matsena are chic, timeless, and a sure way to stand out from the crowd.

Being able to style your natural hair in a variety of hairstyles can become a good problem seeing as you will never run out of options. However, making the final decision to settle for just one, can be daunting but we have narrowed the list to a few options. These options will definitely guide your styling journey and your next trip to the salon.
