2. Big Twists Updo

This cute hairstyle requires a bit more skills and clear parting. The key about this updo is to hide and tuck the ends away. I would suggest to do this on stretched hair. You can weare this updo to a formal event.

3. Twisted Updo

This twisted updo is a beautiful summer protective hairstyle. If you lack length put in marley hair to create braids to pull off this look. Use a flower piece to complete this pretty summer look. Wear this classy updo to a formal event like a wedding or just to hangout with your curlfriends.

4. Rope Braided Updo

This braided updo is one of the cutest summer protective hairstyle. It is a perfect style for medium length. You need gel and a toothbrush to lay your baby hair down. Furthermore, you need some bobby pins to hold the braid. Rope braid around your head, incorporating more strands into your braid as you go.

5. Box braids Updo

Use two large pieces of your braids and spin both around each other. Bobby pins will help you to keep the height. This look is super easy to achieve.

I hope these images gave you some inspirations to rock some of the summer protective hairstyles. Here are 8 tips how you should protect your hair during summertime.

  1. Moisturize your hair as often as needed to avoid breakage.
  2. Seal the moisturizer in your hair. Use jojoba oil, castor oil or almond oils.
  3. Trim your hair regularly to get rid of split ends.
  4. Keep your scalp and your hair clean. Clarify every now and then. I use “Come Clean” by Kinky Curly.
  5. Embrace shrinkage and accept that our hair has a tendency to tightly curl.
  6. Don’t forget to drink enough water.
  7. Use a conditioner after every shampoo session.
  8. Don’t forget the leave in conditioner after washing your hair.
