Who doesn't love protective styles? Not only do they allow your hair to rest but the added new look it gives, makes it all better. If you're wondering what kind of protective style to install next, you're in luck. Here are a few styles you need to try.
Nothing screams class and simplicity than flat twists. They're very gentle on your scalp and low maintenance. This should be on your list if you haven't tried it before.
Spice things up with this style. Get creative, add a few beads and twists and you're good to go! This style helps to stretch your hair without heat and leaves your hair full.
These light weight twists are the perfect go-to protective style. There are a lot of colourful extensions to choose from. You can decide to go long or short with this. The possibilities are endless.
The staple hair style for many naturalistas - twists. They are perfect for medium to long hair. You can go in for micro twists, mini twists, regular twists or chunky twists. If you're looking for a style which will keep your edges intact, this is it.
They're stylish, funky and chic. You can never go wrong with cornrows. There are a lot of stylish patterns you can experiment with. When opting for cornrows, be sure your stylist is super gentle with your edges.
Tired of installing the same old styles? Bantu knots have got you covered. This afrocentric protective style is ideal for the modern woman. Your hair gets stretched after taking it down. Sounds like a win-win situation.
Micro twists do a good job of bringing out your curl pattern in all its glory. It's low maintenance and easy to wear. Installation takes a bit of time but it's worth it. When taking them down, be sure to properly moisturize your hair.
Finger / Comb Curls
Another great way of showing off your curl pattern is through finger or comb curls. Using the Instant Curl Jelly from Eya Naturals allows the curls to pop with no frizz. All you need is the Aloe Vera Hair Mist or Anti Itch Hair and Scalp Spray to moisturize at least once every 2-3 days and they're as good as new. Your scalp and edges get the much needed rest they deserve. You can keep this for up to 6 weeks with proper care.
And now to the good news - Eya Salon is your plug for all these styles and more. Just make your way to either the North Kaneshie or Spintex Branch of the Salon (in Accra) and you'll be sorted out.
