Natural Hair and Other Kinky Stuff

After the Big Chop

My last post discussed my recent hair cut.   

c/o Misa


This is the protective style I selected immediately after the hair cut.  I opted for a natural looking sew in to get me through graduation 🎓 and the several vacations I have/had this summer.    I am no stranger to weave and  protective styles and actually prefer them when I am super busy or vacationing. 

Here are the rules I apply when protective styling and getting a sew in:

-clarify and deep condition

-trim between long term styles 

-never pull the hair tight

-choose a stylist who has experience working with natural hair 


If you have any questions, please leave them below. What is your favorite protective style ?
