A protective style is a great way to minimize wear and tear on your natural hair. Your hair is considered to be "protected" when your ends are covered from the environment & there is minimal daily manipulation that your hair has to endure. This style came at a perfect time. I had just attempted a roller set and had a huge failure in that style. When I say huge, I mean HUGE, ENORMOUS, EPIC! LOL. I had planned to do a post about it, but I just didn't have the heart. I couldn't bear the sight of those pictures being on the web....forever.
I resorted back to my wash and go after that style and anxiously awaited my salon visit this past Friday. My stylist, Taji created this style by adding Sensual Afro Kinky Bulk hair in 14' to my own hair and 2 strand twisting it. This style should last about 8 -10 weeks if properly cared for (which it will be!). I've had it in 4 days so far and I love how carefree it is and I've received numerous compliments.
This will give me and my hair a much needed break and hopefully help with my goal of retaining length. Check out other pictures of the style below.
