Here are pics of one of my favorite protective styles (two flat twists, pinned up on the sides). After I wash, deep condition and moisturize my hair, I do this style in the shower (only takes a few minutes), and I'll put my scarf on at night. In the mornings, I'll mist it with plain ole water. This style can last me from five to seven days (yes, it'll still look nice and neat). Please share pics of your protective styles here.
