4 Protective Styles for Winter

There are many types of naturals. There is the “I only use homemade products” and there is the Lazy natural. Sometimes I am the latter and I just throw my fro underneath a protective style, that way I don’t have to deal with it every day or night. Although, keeping it in a protective style doesn’t mean I do not moisture it daily! Some naturals forbid weaves and wigs for many reasons, some ethical, which I completely understand. Others say that weaves just do not suit them or they cannot maintain it. If you like me, enjoy the ease of Protective styles, I’m going to show you my go-to looks whenever I want to do the Weave Dance!

Wigs- This wig was from Rosegal.com and underneath I have a very easy and simple braid pattern.

Weaves- This is my beautiful friend, she got her weave from Aliexpress.com and of course her edges are slaying.


Box Braids- This is my beautiful sister, she has on some short box braids which she styled with some gold accessories.

Crotchet Braids- I think this was one of the best protective styles to happen in the Natural Hair Community! It is so quick to do (thanks sis) and so versatile- depending on your braid pattern underneath, you can change the parting everyday!
