Protective Styles!!!

Hey Chic-istas!!! As you may know, I have been falling head over heels in love with my hair. After recently experiencing growth, I have been so in awe of my mane that I have been wearing it out every single day. Yes, my hair was looking fab and yes, I'm loving all these styles, but what I have been doing is a big No No for a naturalista who is trying to maintain hair health and retain length. It is time to find a great protective style....

My goal is to do a protective style that last from Monday to Friday. Deep Condition on Friday afternoon, and wear my hair out on the weekends. It is going to be hard, I'm probably going to get bored, but protective styling is way more important than uploading cute pictures of my hair to Instagram (lol).

Here are my tips on the protective style I have been rocking this week- faux bun using Marley Braiding Hair.

Healthy Protective Bun How-to and Tips...






1) Loosely gather hair into a large puff using a large headband instead of a small ponytail holder. Using a large headband that is doubled or knotted will ensure that your hair isn't pulled too tightly and will protect your edges. Moisturized ends with h20, leave-in conditioner, and seal with oil.











2) Divide your puff into medium sections and twist each section. Make sure you seal the ends with additional oil.












3. Wrap twist around and create a bun making sure all your ends are tucked away and protected.










4) Add marley braiding hair and style as desire. Try a side faux pompadour with a faux bun for some versatility.
