For the naturalistas in need of a break - this is a great choice! See post for the how-to!
Protective Style Take Two: Crochet Braids
Hair: Model Model Glance Brand- Water Wave Bulk- #2
Cost: $3.99/pack- two packs used
Style time: 2.5 hours
Length of protection: 4-6 weeks
I LOVE this style! Easy, inexpensive, natural looking, and ultimate protection. All the fun of a Twistout, and fully protectes natural hair. The best of both worlds! There is also ample access to your scalp and hair to moisturize and maintain your regimen. Much thanks to YouTube tutorial from MissGlamourGirl1992. Step by Step pics listed above. I highly recommend this look for naturalistas young and old.
Looking forward to showcasing my maximum length retention in 4 weeks!! Wish me luck, ladies!

Animal print always wins!
what made you decide to become natural?
I was inspired by so many other beautiful young ladies and ready to begin my journey to healthy hair. I have been getting relaxer since age 3, so I have never really seen my natural hair texture. As soon as it would grow, I had to get it relaxed. My hair never grew beyond the back of my neck with a relaxer so I am geeked to watch it grow without the chemicals. I used sew-ins to cover up, but now I am discovering more about who I am and accepting my flaws and all. Lots of learning to do but so far I am loving it. Thanks for the question!
Again, feeling the black and white pattern with pop of color!
I love black and white patterns with a splash of color. Love it!
