It’s win­ter time and a per­fect oppor­tu­ni­ty to try pro­tec­tive styling as a means to retain mois­ture and pro­tect hair from harsh wind and cold. Vlog­ger Chary­Jay presents us with a sim­ple high bun. Check it out:

What do you think of the look ladies? Would you rock this style?

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!
