21 Easy Protective Hairstyles For Natural Hair [With Images]
Headwraps – Use To Protect Natural Afro Or Relaxed Hair
All right, so headwraps aren’t exactly hairstyles…
But a list of techniques to protect your hair just wouldn’t be complete without them.
Here are some of our favorites from Instagram:
This Instagrammer is looking on point. We love the striped headwrap tied at the front, and the psychedelic looking glasses. Stunning.
Look out! It’s another stunning Instagrammer with an awesome headwrap and just as cool glasses. The beige color of the wrap goes with her super put together look, and it being tied right on top of her head with hair inside gives it bulk, body, and interest. This is definitely a head turning look, and something you could try when you’re between styling.
This turban look is almost Rasta empress style, and we love it. It looks neat, sophisticated, and maybe even spiritual or earthy. We love it paired with the loose shrugged cardigan this Instagrammer has picked out, with a tighter shirt and pants underneath. Definitely an interesting look to replicate.
Bright, bold, and African-inspired. This headwrap looks incredible, and is sure to turn heads. With a bright lipstick and hoop earrings, this Instagram page have truly got this look shining. The gold detailing on the wrap itself matches with the earrings and gives a more luxe dimension to the style.
Apart from the fact we love her shirt and jacket, this young lady’s headwrap just takes it to a-whole-nother level. The black and white detailing matches the rest of her outfit, while the red just pops. We think this is a great wrap style to rock if you’ve got slightly longer hair, giving it the body at the top.
Additionally, there are a lot more hats for natural hair that’ll do the job, so you may want to try one of those too.
So, that brings us to the end of our run down of protective hairstyles (and wraps we just couldn’t resist including). We hope you’ve found some new styles to try that will become your go-tos. It’s really important to protect your hair, and as you’ve seen, protective styles can be just as gorgeous, interesting, and fashion-forward as any others.
