Protective Styling: 7 Tips For Using Wigs For Maximum Length Retention

7 tips for using wigs for maximum length retention
Wigs and for that matter weaves are products that I never thought I would ever use in my lifetime. Before I began my HHJ I just didn't see the point of wearing fake hair when there was already a head-full of hair growing on my head. In my mind wigs were for bald people or celebrities.

A hair journey natural or otherwise has a way of opening your eyes to a whole new world of experiences and techniques and I quickly came to the realization that I had difficulty retaining length while my hair was loose and being washed and detangled weekly.

Among the solutions available as protective styles, wigs were probably in the 'last resort' category but very soon I came to see their usefulness both as a protective style and a way to have hair to play in while growing out my real hair.
