It’s your right to believe what you want about protective styles (or any other thing for that matter) but you must believe right.
To believe right you have to be exposed to the truth.
There are lies about protective styles that many women, perhaps including you, have come to believe.
So let’s dive in to discover the three lies or misconceptions about protective styles that you should stop believing (or don’t ever believe) right away.
Lie 1: Protective styles are only that, they are not glamorous
Oh dear! Nothing can outrank this lie in the hair world.
Beyond the protection and growth protective styles give to your hair, they look astonishingly beautiful on you (if well made and suited) and make you feel confident.
Not only that, if you are looking for a hairstyle that depicts classy, glam, chic, and excites you, there are several protective styles to choose from.
For example: Havana twists. Here’s why a customer to our salon wanted a protective style:
“I came to Diena Simply Natural looking for a protective style because I was bored with what I had before.
“Now that my hair is done, I feel confident and ready to conquer the world.”
– DSN customer
Lie 2: Protective styles can’t be pain-free
It is true that protective styles can be painful, and most women can attest to that.
In fact, many women come to me and complain about how they are scared of getting braids done because of the excruciating pain they have to endure.
But the truth is: it is a lie to say protective styles can’t be pain-free.
I know this because I have done pain-free protective styles for customers to our salon. Here’s what the customer above said about her experience with us.
“I had a really good experience the last time I came so that’s why I’m here again.”
– DSN customer

Lie 3: All protective styles are good for you
Yes, not all protective styles are good for everyone.
The wrong protective style can cause your hair to get tangled, dry and it may experience breakage from being left untouched for too long.
The truth is: your type of hair and personality determines the kind of protective style that’ll suit you.
