Any woman who has had some experience with hair extensions and weaves knows that it requires regular upkeep to prevent damage to natural hair. This is perhaps what keeps some who are trying to grow their real hair away from the trend. Fortunately, there is a better option in wearing a quality lace closure while sporting a protective style. Get ready to say goodbye to breakage and say hello to these healthy hair benefits.
Break Time for Your Hair
What with all that heat styling, coloring, product use, and sun damage, your hair could certainly use a break. It’s also the perfect time for you to try and grow it out. Wearing Vietnamese lace closures offer the protection you can’t get from normal extensions since all of your natural hair will be tucked away underneath in braids. Braids are already considered protective styles, but this set-up gives twice the protection to allow for more growth. Additionally, your crown and hairline will get the rest they need since you won’t have to do so much styling now.
Minimum Upkeep Required
With your real hair hidden away under the closure, you won’t have to do a lot of maintenance. Since your hair will be in braids most of the time, you won’t have to subject it to excessive brushing. You will still get to wash your hair and scalp every now and then so you can still feel fresh and clean underneath. At night, you can just wrap your hair or wear a bonnet to keep it intact while you sleep, and then take it off in the morning.
Ready to Go
Protective styling is all about giving your hair a time off, and it’s not meant to last forever. After all, why grow your hair if you’re just going to keep it hidden away? This is why it’s a good idea to still keep your real hair in check. If you see that your hair has recovered its lost glow, you don’t necessarily have to keep wearing your closure. You can go back to your old styling, but this time, exercise greater caution to protect your hair from more damage.
