The Staggered Protective Styling Regimen – Grow Your Hair Long The Easy Way

Arm pit length to waist length

Over the last few weeks we have posted quite a few articles on protective styling techniques complete with tips on how you can use them to retain maximum length in your journey to long hair.

I have a confession to make. I rarely retain length myself when I don't protective style. Low manipulation styling is great and all but it simply doesn't work for everyone as a length retention tool and it certainly didn't work for me.

When you find that your painstakingly created low manipulation regimen is no longer helping your hair get longer, it may not be something small that needs to be adjusted but rather a complete rethinking of your regimen.

Your moisture-protein balance may be as great as it's ever going to be but if you are not having any length gains then at some point you have to admit that your hair may simply not be able to withstand the weekly manipulation that is your wash day. You will just continue to maintain your current length.

thanks for post very informative i def. will be trying this!

Tammera Craft

I started this in February and reduce salon visits to 6-8 weeks I went Wednesday for the first time since February and my stylist exclaimed “wow you’re hair has grown so much” I take biotin 3,000 and it definitely helps :)! I love this article it’s worked for me 3 months later my hair sweeps my shoulders from a little below the ears! I used the Bantu Knot out protective style I found on YouTube and the twist out styles. For work I do a goddess braid around the front and a loose bun in middle of the braid it’s cute and good for an office job!

This nothing new. A stylist told me this years ago. You have to let your hair breath.

There are so many posts about how to make your hair grow which is great! But I’d like something on how to treat thinning hair. That would help a lot of people I think.
