What is considered a Protective Style?
A Protective Style for natural hair is any configuration of the hair that has the ends safely tucked away from manipulation and/or harm from styling tools or the elements. These styles require very little to no maintenance or manipulation on a daily basis, and they also promote hair growth.
Anytime is a good time to wear a protective style, but it is especially good to wear these styles during cold months. .Below, please find a list of protective styles offered by A Natural Nuance Hair Spa, Inc. Feel free to contact us to book any service that peaks your interest, or to ask questions.

How to Keep Natural Hair Moisturized
1. You can’t moisturize your hair without water. In fact, you may already use a range of products and conditioners to moisturize your hair, but a true moisturizer will have water listed as one of the first two ingredients. (In our hair masks, water is second only to fresh avocados!) If your product contains much other than water, it simply isn’t moisturizing your hair.
2. You can use a thick, natural oil to seal in moisture from a water-based moisturizer. We recommend castor oil or avocado oil, or an anti-humectant like Shea butter (that’s why Shea butter is the main ingredient in our leave-in serum.)
3. Trim your hair regularly to get rid of split ends, brittle ends, and single strand knots. This will help your hair grow and retain moisture in the long run.
4. Avoid heat at all costs. Flat irons and blow driers will strip the moisture out of your hair, leaving it dry- and once it’s gone, it takes a while for natural oils to re-moisturize your hair.
5. Keep your hands OUT of your hair! Touching your curls will make them dry out faster.
6. At night, cover your hair with a satin bonnet or scarf to retain moisture while you sleep. Silk is an animal protein fiber, while satin is a fiber weave. There are differences between the two, but either one will prevent moisture loss overnight, along with normal snags and split ends from friction.
7. Finally, one of the most important ways to moisturize natural hair is a consistent deep conditioning routine. Natural deep conditioners sit in your hair long enough to penetrate the strands, packing your hair with the moisture and nutrients it needs to thrive. Rinse after 20-40 minutes, style with your normal products, enjoy the results... and repeat every two weeks!
