10 Natural Hair Protective Styles To Try

Dasha Tate
Spring has sprung! That's right ladies, it is time for us to transition to having that hair out for summer.
 
We all love having our hair healthy and flowing free in the breeze. What better way to protect our hair than a protective style? So, let's look at a few!
 
1. Wigs
 
Wigs are the hottest style out right now. The best way to get the style you want without tons of work. From Pink to Blue to purple, you can get wigs in every style and color. Check out this wig install from one of YouTube's finest. Step out of the box and do what you feel.
2. Clip Ins
 
These Kinky Clip Ins are awesome for sisters who want to add length and protect their hair from serious damage. This style can be accomplished if you leave the hair in by braiding it into a pattern or leaving your hair out. Although the hair is exposed it is still considered a protective style because some of the hair is covered.
3. Faux Locs
 
This style is for those who want Locs without the commitment. You get the style and look, but temporarily.
4. Head Wraps
 
Let’s not just do it for a protective style, but let’s do it for the culture! Be creative. Pull it to the front, the back with leave out, however you feel express that. Accompany it with a pair of our regal earrings and you have a look that everyone is going to be checking for.
5. Feed in Braids
 
This style came and transformed the way we wear cornrows. We have rocked braids forever. It is definitely apart of us as a people. With this new spin on the cornrow we are getting a natural look and length in creative styles. From two braids to six, this style is unique and the look you want to go for to turn heads. EZ Braid hair is the best hair for an anti itch scalp. We have a great selection of braiding hair including EZ Braid with various colors and styles. Check it out here. 
6. Box Braids
 
Box braids never get old and are the best when you just don’t want to do your hair. Not to mention it aids in hair growth. Whether done by a beauty shop or the girl up the street this will always be the style to get when you want it to last long.
7. Crochet
 
So remember the old school latch hook that everybody really hated, but wore it because it was cheap and convenient. Well, it’s back and now called crochet. The difference between then and now is you can get any type of hair for this look and be transformed. From curly, to straight, to box braids, to twist. Crochet hair is where its at. Check out our crochet hair here
8. The Pony Tail
 
The pony tail will never go out of style and is special for those days when you want to be fly but not really trying to do your natural hair. Put your hair in a bun and clip on that draw string. Slay them edges and be ready to go in less than thirty minutes. The elegant look without the beauty salon hassle. Check out our selection of ponytails here
9. Natural Braided or Twisted Up Do
 
Any style go’s. I remember saying I was going to do my hair. With no style in mind. Basically just freestyle twist and braids with bobby pins until it looks good. The styles always came out great. Whether it was twist or braids I would work it out and come up with the most unique styles. In order to do protective styles like this you have to know your hair and know what products it likes. After experimenting on yourself and determining what’s best for your hair, you can basically do anything you want.
10. Sew-In
 
A Sew-In is done basically by sewing tracks into a braid pattern on your head. It’s very simple and can last for a couple months. You can also wash your hair if you like with protective style shampoo and conditioner like Hairfinity’s beneath the weave which we offer at Regal Beauty. Not to mention are 3 bundle deal that includes a transparent lace closure, check that out here

Stay Regal!

The Politics Of Black Hair

Deanna Jones
It really doesn’t matter how you wear or refer to your hair we know there is a whole culture attached to and surrounding it. The aforementioned fact would be mystifying if it were not connected to the broader culture that is often imitated but never duplicated. We’ll leave that conversation for a different day. Staying on point for this post though we have to discuss the obsession with Black hair. Do we understand it? Yes and no.

The Four Things I Wish I Knew Before I Got Locs

Dasha Tate
I love my locs! But sometimes I don't.... I've been contemplating for months if I want to continue on this journey or cut them off. I'm still not sure yet. Until I make that final decision, I want to share with you what I wish I knew before I transitioned into a loc sister. I believe if I knew these things I would have taken better care of my hair from the beginning. I probably could have prevented much of the breakage I've had over the years. Here it goes!

Face Recovery: Getting Back To A Face Care Regimen

Dasha Tate
My facial care regimen has had its ups and downs over the years. I used to be really consistent with how I cared for my skin, specifically my face. Recently I have come to realize I was not doing a good job. Somewhere in between work, children, and being a wife I have completely forgot that skincare is self-care. When we don’t take care of ourselves wholly it shows, inside and out. So, with this acknowledgment, I have begun to hold myself accountable. I am restarting my face and skincare regimen; documenting my consistency to the world. I hope I am an inspiration for the next sister who fell off track when nourishing her skin.

Growth-minded

Deanna Jones
In the months since we have been open, we get tons of questions about products, bundles, lashes, and hair. The question we get asked often is... “What do you have that will grow my hair/edges”. We get those women that genuinely feel they can buy a serum or vitamin and before you know it they have waist-length tresses with volume to the gods. I get it. I would love to have my fro so wide and all-side that it is sitting on my shoulders. (#Goals)
So In this blog, I wanted to discuss being growth-minded.
