Mastering Haircare Under Protective Styles for Healthy Growth

Published March 6th, 2024 by Synergisalonadmin

Protective styles are a fantastic way to nurture longer, healthier natural hair. Properly maintained, these styles shield your hair from environmental elements, minimize mechanical damage during styling, and reduce friction caused by rough garments like scarves and coats. From braids to weaves, twists to buns, any style where the ends of your hair are tucked away qualifies as a protective style.

Whether you're transitioning or simply seeking a new look with wigs, weaves, or clip-ins, it's crucial to care for your natural hair underneath. Here are three top tips to ensure your hair stays in tip-top shape:

1. Keep It Clean

While wearing weaves or wigs, it's common to postpone washing your hair. However, maintaining a clean scalp is essential for optimal hair health. Ideally, wash your scalp every 7-10 days, especially for naturally curly hair types. Using an effective shampoo like Synergi Replenish Moisture Infusing Shampoo helps remove dead cells and styling products, promoting healthy hair growth. A dirty scalp can lead to clogged 

hair follicles, slowing growth and leading to infections. Regular washing also makes hair more manageable and receptive to moisture and oils.

2. Keep It Conditioned

Deep conditioning replenishes lost oils and moisture in your hair. For very dry hair, deep condition weekly for optimal hydration. Apply your deep conditioner to freshly washed hair, cover your head with a plastic cap, and apply indirect heat from a hot head or hooded dryer for at least an hour before rinsing with cool water. Don't forget to care for your scalp too. Excessive tension from wigs, weaves, and cornrows requires extra scalp care. Massage Soothe into your scalp every few days to relieve tension, prevent itchiness, and stimulate growth.

3. Keep It Moisturized

Moisture is vital for healthy growth and styling ease. Before installing a weave or donning a wig, moisturize your hair with a water-based product like Synergi Reset Leave-In Conditioner. Seal in the moisture by lightly applying a quality oil blend like Rose Oil Brilliant Shine Drops. Pump a small amount of oil into your hands, rub them together, and smooth it over your hair's surface for added nourishment and shine.

By following these essential tips, you can maintain healthy hair under protective styles and support optimal growth and vitality. Ready to give your hair the care it deserves? Visit Synergi Salon for premium haircare products and expert advice.
