Does Your Protective Style Truly Protect

This year has been the year of “protective styling” for me. I was persistent to protect my hair from manipulation, heat damage, retain length and most importantly protect these ends.

I have very thick hair and I used to hate washing my hair because it would be all over the place, tangled and let’s just say a hot mess! So, I remember when I started transitioning I would complain to a great friend of my…
