In the hot months, our curls can easily lose moisture and begin to break off. The best way to avoid this and protect our tresses is by hiding the ends of our hair. Up my sleeve, I have four simple, but cute, protective styles that will give your hair that much needed break. Check them out!
1. Decorative Scarf
Leaving most of the hair in twists or braids, and just a little bit of the hair out in the front, tie the twisted/braided hair down with a nice scarf, and leave a little hair out in the front to add a little funkiness.
2. Mini Twists
Mini twists are my favorite protective style, and are one of the best ways to hide and protect your ends for a long period of time. They are so versatile and extremely cute! Here, I have the back pinned up and the front out.
3. Tuck and Roll
With the hair in small or medium twists, tuck and roll the back of the hair to create a cute pinned up style, with the front of the hair in a slight pompadour. This style allows for double protection. It hides the ends of the hair, first, with the mini twists, then with the tuck and roll.
4. The Faux Bun
The faux bun is such a fun and easy style. To do it, put your hair in a ponytail, grab some Marley or regular braiding hair, place that hair in its on ponytail holder, then wrap that ponytail holder and the hair around your tresses until you create the perfect bun! This style is cute and it hides the ends of your curls, giving them the break they deserve.
There you have it! Four easy, DIY protective styles that will hide those ends and keep your hair healthy!
If you are natural, I’m sure you can agree that natural hair products are not cheap. Usually, these products can range anywhere from $10-$40 and up. I don’t know about you, but spending $20-$40 on a hair product is a huge no, no for me; especially when that type of money can be used for something like gas. Even though I would love to consistently buy the Carol’s Daughters and the Miss Jessie’s products of the natural hair world, I know that there are products out there that work just as well and are half the price. Because I believe every naturalista should not have to break the bank buying quality products for their curls, I am more than happy to provide you curly divas with my top 10, under $10, amazing, but cheap, natural hair products.
