Protective Styles on the Way

So, it’s that time again. With summer coming to an end I find myself already thinking of protective styles. Last winter was a rough one and it was quite clear that I needed to keep my ends safe from the sharp winds. So there were many different looks that I tried and some that I repeated but with slight changes. I had Marley twists both long and short, crochet twists with the Marley hair, yarn braids, and I wore a few different wigs styles as well. 

I’m not sure all together what looks I’ll try this winter but I know for sure one of them will be Senegalese braids done professionally. I’m excited for the out come, but not looking forward to having to sit in that chair for many hours. Aside from that I have one or two wigs that I haven’t wore yet and the rest is up in the air. Might do Marley twists again since I’ve gotten good at doing it myself.

Last winters’ protective looks:

This book teaches black, Afro-descendent, Afro-Latina, and/or Garifuna girls how to positively describe different hair types instead of using the term “bad hair”. Fun illustrations were created to help describe different types of hair and hairstyles. This book was created to empower little girls so they can embrace and love their beautiful natural hair. This book calls for all of us to work as equal partners to encourage our girls by using proper terminology to describe their hair which is directly linked to their essence and self-esteem.
