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.

And for those of us who weren't aware already, the perfect time for protective styles is during the colder months when hair can become susceptible to breakage due to the harshness of the weather.
