When it comes to afro-textured hair, the more that can be done to retain moisture, the better. No one wants to be caught with dry edges and ends, especially during autumn because the humidity dwindles and gives way to brisk, cold air. Yes, autumn truly is a one-of-a-kind time of year, bringing with it the possibility of having to wage war against the weather to protect your hair. Luckily, you have us on your side! In this article, you’ll find suggestions on protective hairstyles to wear this autumn to keep your hair healthy and looking good!

Protect your hair with a good hydrating shampoo.

A hydrating shampoo will help protect your hair.


We all know there are going to be times where we lack the time and/or the energy to spend on styling our hair just so. Sometimes you may want to look cute with not as much effort. Other times, you may just be running a quick errand and won’t feel it’s worth it to take your hair down. Regardless of your circumstances, just know headwraps are one of the best hair products for remy hair and they are here to the rescue! Simply take a satin scarf and tie it around your hair, knotting it at the crown. If you want, you can leave a few strands hanging out in front.


There’s probably nothing more classical than a set of braids! While it takes quite a few hours out of your day to complete this style, especially if you add in hair extensions, your braids will last some time and are versatile enough to be worn in a variety of styles. You can also play around with the thickness of your braids for different looks, ranging from box braids to microbraids to crochet. If you want a low-maintenance hairstyle, braids are likely one of your best bets.

Faux Dreads

This look has become quite popular over the last few years, and for good reason. They’re just as versatile as actual dreadlocks but without the commitment. In fact, they’re quite a bit more like braids in terms of the flexibility they offer because they can be woven in with your natural hair and, if cared for well, can last quite a long time. Some report their faux dreads last as long as three months!

Whether you like dreadlocks in an aesthetic sense, but don’t want to commit to wearing them for an indefinite amount of time, or you want to test whether dreadlocks are a good permanent style for you, this low-maintenance style is sure to help keep your hair both secure and attractive. Just be sure to research hair products for remy hair beforehand to learn the best care techniques!

We hope this brief list serves as a bit of inspiration for you as you navigate autumn. The sooner you’re prepared for the cold weather, the better, which is why there’s no better time than the present to stock up on hydrating shampoo and styling ideas.
