PROTECT YOUR STYLE: benefits to wearing protective hairstyles

only in the last several years have i been really paying attention on how to maintain my hair, especially cut into a curly style. and boyyyy it is HARD af! (well, at least for me it is.)

i have gone through dozens of styling products & have tried every twist out imaginable! every day my curls lay, face, and point a different direction. it keeps me on my toes and really differentiates between my “good” and “bad” hair days, but DAMN i can not keep up! i love my curl pattern & am so eager to discover what works for me, that i sometimes forget how beneficial it is to just wear a protective style! & thank goodness one of my besties HOOKS UP my hair when i want to give it some extra lovin’!
