Braids and senegalese twists:
Even though braids are not fully protective as your ends are not covered, they are considered a low manipulation style. The lack of a need to comb, brush, pull, tug and otherwise manipulate the hair helps prevent the ends from being ripped, drying out and ultimately breaking off.
Box braids and senegalese twists are perfect for the fall, especially for those of you who are busy with school/work/kids and want to significantly cut down your daily hair styling time.
Wigs and Weaves:
Last but certainly not the least are wigs and weaves. These options when applied properly can help protect your hair, minimize breakage and maximize length retention. You can go with a texture that is close to your natural hair or opt for something a little more dramatic.
