A protective style is meant to do just what its name suggests: protect against breakage and harm to your natural hair. But if poorly done, it may have more striking effects. While installing a style, excessive straining, the use of incorrect braiding hair, and improper detangling before and after can all lead to damage.
Yet how you implement these trends might be equally harmful. You might be eager to switch up your look after wearing the same style for weeks, but patience is the key to removing braids, twists, and even locs.
Most of the time, it will take a few hours, but with the appropriate combination of products, you can get them out without sacrificing the advantages of performing a protective style in the first place, that is, protecting your hair from damage.
So let’s get on with the some useful tips to help you protect your natural hair from damage while removing protective braids.
