4 Reasons Protective Styling is The Perfect Substitute for Color

Posted on 01 March 2017

This unexpectedly warm weather has us all thinking a season ahead. Part of preparing for spring is committing to switching up your look with #summerhair but the shimmer that comes with the style can cause with some serious damage. Luckily Latched and Hooked has protective styling options in a variety of shades so you can change your look without risking your hair’s health.

1) You Can Try Before You Buy

It’s a normal night, you’re scrolling through Instagram and then it happens. Rihanna/Teyana Taylor/Justine Skye is wrecking the red carpet with a show stopping new color. You don’t care what it is, you don’t care how they got it, you just know you need it-NOW. There’s just one problem. You don’t know if it will look good on you. While the stars have stylists that are willing to cater to them twenty-four seven those of us with less clout and coins might need to be careful before we commit. Experimenting with our Twist Out Curl in a variety of colors is a great way to try out that color clinging to your Pinterest board.

2) You Can Stick to Your Care Routine

Because color has the tendency to dry out the cuticle deep conditioning color treated hair more often is a must. As if wash day wasn't arduous enough, you'll be adding to your DIY duties with additional hair care tasks. The chemicals that create color can also react poorly with certain hair products. This means more time reading ingredients and less time two stepping at that weekly HBCU themed brunch you've always wanted to try. If you've seen our Two Toned colored braid wigs or Purple Rain Braid Hair, then you know it's the perfect option to play around with color without compromising the health of your hair.

3) You Can Avoid Allergies

You never know how your hair is going to react to chemical processing. There’s a reason patch tests are so heavily suggested before beginning the dye process. Skip the threat of a burning scalp by sticking to protective styling.


4) You Can Keep Your Current Color

Many of us are so enamored with the thought of changing hair colors we forget that our natural color is beautiful. Dying your hair requires literally lifting the color from your strands so the new shade can be deposited. That's scary stuff. Talk to your stylist before making the commitment!
