When it comes to black athletes alternating between different protective hairstyles both on and off the field he is the epitome and best fitting example.

All Ja’Marr Chase Hair Styles
2 Strand Twists
Whilst we continue to see Ja’Marr Chase alternate between various different protective hairstyles his 2 strand twists are his trademark look.
Twists for men, in particular black men are a very popular hairstyle due to its simplicity, protective style, rope like effect whilst having the ability to stay intact for up to 6 weeks.
In his case as an athlete not only does it have aesthetic value but it also allows him practical benefits such as keeping hair fresh for months both on and off the field.
To protect his hair on game days under the helmet he will usually place a headscarf over his twists!
Twists with Bleached Ends
His twists have also undergone light colouring which we can see on the ends of his hair.
As were all for his natural hair colour black this style isnothing more than creative expression to add personality to his locks.
Disclaimer: Applying any sort of chemical to your hair is a very risky job as this can lead to breakage or thinning if not done correctly, therefore we always recommend you use a professional.
Off Scalp Braids
Box braids are somewhat similar in appearance in twists, however we can immediately see the clear distinction.
Box braids are installed by intertwining three strands of hair, while twists require only two strands to be wrapped around each other, which is why twists have the rope like look.
Ja’Marr Chase can be seen mostly alternating between these 2 hairstyles and for good reason, there versatile & low-maintenance.
Afro Blow Outs
In between protective styling its just as important to let your hair breathe which results in no styling, just having your hair out.
The best thing about his afro is that were able to see its true length and thickness.
The protective styles means minimal styling and manipulation, therefore for the 4-6 weeks he has his hair tucked away it can grow.
When worn out we see just how big his afro really is!
HAIR ENVY IS A REAL THING!
