Putting your hair in a protective style doesn't mean that it will grow faster.
A protective style helps to RETAIN LENGTH, that is the most important thing. If you don’t RETAIN LENGTH then it will seem as if your hair is not growing, when this isn’t the case.
Many people have the misconception that if they wear a protective style for 2 months, their hair will grow 2 inches.
If you’re doing this, you’re going to have a lot of breakage to a point where it looks like your hair hasn’t grown. Even if you’ve had them for 6 weeks and they still look fresh, take them out!!!
It is also vital that you moisturise with water, oils etc. whilst your hair is in a protective style so that you’re taking care of your hair underneath (if you’re wearing braids or whatever)Hope this helps💖✨
