Step 6 :Low Manipulation
6. Low Manipulation
Low manipulation is styling that keeps the strands from being touched or handled too often, which can lead to length retention. Many low maintenance styles can be worn, for many days, with minimal or no manipulation. This can offer your hair a much needed break from brushing, combing and also from harsh heat styling. Some low manipulation hairstyles are twist outs, braid outs, roller or straw sets, wash-n-go, mo, hawks, fro-hawks, buns, flat twists and pony tails.
Low manipulation styles generally help in maintaining a good length and can lead to thicker, stronger hair that allows you to achieve your hair growth goals. These styles are different from protective styles because this styling does not essentially mean that you tuck away your hair or cover your hair ends. There are a few easy low manipulation styles that you can depend on for your undisturbed strands. Improper manipulation and over manipulation are two bad habits that cause breakage, splitting, knotting and loss of length.
