Post Your Favorite Protective Style Here!

This is how you will find me 6 out of 7 days. I love to use the Chineese sticks because they don't create any tension on the hair line.



For those interested, I have created a "how to" in album in my fotki

Bests!

Dlewis you hair is sooo pretty! Love it.



My crazy phony pony for when I have 50-11 inches of new growth.



What I am rocking today!



My flat twist into a braid. I gotta practice this some more. It was really hard.

Wow ladies! These styles are gorgeous and just what I need right now. I found and bought one of those hairagami (sp) things today because I'm desperate to try some new protective styles other than the plain 'ol sock bun. Great thread...this was right on time! Please post some how-to's as well. By looking at some of these styles, I don't even know where to start.:confused:

This is my curly/wavy phony pony wrapped into a bun. I wear it when my new growth is wavy and showing. I use a straight phony pony wrapped into a bun when I have a fresh relaxer.

Just when I was getting bored with protective styles, along comes this thread with cute styles. I wish I could flat twist though.

I bought some sticks a while back but didn't know how to use them. The only style I saw and liked was Sistaslick's Chinese Bun, but I don't have all that hair yet. :lol:

Thanks so much for that "how to" in your album, SerenityBreeze! It's so cute.

Here are my favorites besides the bun:

This is so pretty!!! I love it!!!

This thread is such awesome testimonial that "protective styles" do not have to be unattractive or frumpy! :D You can grow your hair long and retain that length while STILL looking beautiful!!!

Thank-you! You know I have been stalking that french braid of Vicorious's and the one DLewis used to have in her Avitar. I just can't make them smooth like they do,:cry3:
