With fall weather on the way, it includes pumpkin spice lattes and an excuse to cozy up in bed, but it’s also time to start choosing your protective hairstyles. In between protective styles like knotless braids and faux locs, it’s necessary to allow your hair to have a break, so fall/winter is a great time to stock up on new headwraps. Wraps with a satin or silk lining are recommended for Black hair textures to retain moisture and prevent breakage. Not only are these nine brands founded by Black women, but they're bound to give you a lot of options for all of your outfits this season.
