Fall is definitely here and Winter will be creeping it’s frosty head around the corner any minute now, so it’s time for me to get into protective style mode for the season.
I had been struggling for a few weeks trying to narrow down what I wanted to do. See I’m the type to wear a protective style for as long as I possibly can. I’m not really into changing my hair every few days or each week if I don’t have to. I guess I’ve been in this natural hair game for way too long now, to pretend that I have enough time to keep watching YouTube videos, trying out new styles each week as a Do-It-Yourself-er. Maybe back when I was in my early 20’s, but I’m worn out now. So whatever I chose was gonna have to be something that could be worn for long periods of time.
Recently I’ve been seeing pics of women rocking mini twists and thought… Hmmm, that would look really nice on me. I’m no stranger to mini braids, or 2 strand twists so I knew mini twists would be an easy style to wear. It would allow me to transition from wearing the twists for a few weeks (and if I can stretch it..months) to wearing a super tight twist out for a few days afterward.
I also knew it would take hours to install them, but since I’ve been doing my own hair since age 12, I’m not easily intimidated by time or tired hands.
Here are my fabulous results. Hope you enjoy the pics. If you have any questions about the process or whatever’s on your mind, leave me a comment or email me. Thanks a lot for reading!!
What’s your favorite protective style?
