My senegalese twists are still going strong (and don’t mind my face in the pic – it was a test shot for my most recent video)! I am actually considering taking them out and letting my hair get a breather … and then reinstalling. The installation process is so quick that it equates to any other protective style that I have done on my hair – mini twists, loose twists, updos…
I know that typically in winter, many people use protective styling as a means to protect their ends from the harsh weather conditions (dry) and also from their clothing (certain textures/blends soaking the moisture out of hair). I remember last winter I did a 21 day protective style challenge just off the strength of saying that I did one, but I’m not pressed to do it again. I just want to style my hair in such as way that it works for me – no challenge needed, really.
In this post, you will find the link backs to the styles that I used to protect my tresses.

Eventually, I will experiment with more styles – protective or not, and as always I will keep you all posted! In the meantime, be sure to visit the Natural Hair Care tab on this site for more inspiration!
