I’ll be trying this one tomorrow! Thanks BGLH and CharyJay


How long are you supposed to keep protective styles of this nature in? I am on a journey to get my natural hair back to healthy and I’ve just started making some big changes a few days ago. I’ve read a lot of articles on this site so far.. anyway back to the question – I did put my hair in some sort of style like this last night so do I leave it up for a week until it’s time to wash/condition my hair again?


I style my stretched hair daily into a high bun. Leaving it up too long could cause breakage. At night I tie it up very loosely with a satin scarf. In the morning the steam from the shower adds moisture. I then apply a leave in conditioner and coconut oil. Being sure to really focus on my ends. It all gets pulled into a high bun. I’m sure not to pull it to tight as this could also damage edges.

Oh, I am impressed. Very nice hair look and also gorgeous.


I like it and will be trying it. She wears so much makeup, she looks like a different person almost without it.


I agree without makeup she looks younger! However my hair is still too short to do that style…shame! cute!
