How To Beat The Heat In A Disconnected Cut

By  | 

Don’t let the heat interrupt your fly! As we all know with the summer’s warm weather and beautiful sunshine, inevitably comes sweated out edges and hair that sometimes won’t cooperate.  But don’t worry — you can rock a disconnected cut that is cute and practical!

A disconnected haircut is any cut with dramatic length differences like a Mohawk. Disconnected haircuts have always been a favorite for ladies with short hair since the day-to-day maintenance is amazing. On a good day, we can be done with our hair in minutes. However, with summer approaching, our routines may have to change.  Often times, nature’s humidity, and excessive heat can put a few hiccups on the road while performing our daily hair routines.

So what do we do now?  Get innovative! Over the years, disconnect cuts have become more creative as stylists are mixing it up! You can add protective styles and hair accessories to your traditionally worn disconnected cuts, all while staying true to the cut life!

Here are a few ways to switch it up:

Adding a few tracks of weaving hair into your cut can help maintain the hairstyle easier during the hot summer months.  When your hair is braiding or “molded” down properly, you no longer have to worry about maintaining your natural hair.
