When you have natural hair, protective styling becomes your BFF. Not only is it a way to quell the sometimes monotonous feeling of doing your hair and allows you to switch it up, but protective styles are hairstyles that are essential to your hair's growth and ability to retain length. So, win win.
It never fails. Winter comes, and a little voice in our heads encourages us naturalistas everywhere to straighten our hair.
Maybe it's the desire to look "more formal" at upcoming galas and soirees, topped with the confidence that we won't go from sleek to poof as typically risked during hotter months. Or perhaps it's just too cold to go through with our regular air-dry routines.
Spring may have come in a little late this year and proved to be more cold than warm, but that's okay because summer is officially on the way to (hopefully) give you all the hot temps and sunny skies you can handle.

Besides all the perks of being healthier for natural hair and being more affordable and more realistic looking than traditional weaves and wigs, the fact that crochet braid hairstyles are easily DIY gives me life!
