The DMX Challenge would be nothing without black women -- we invented and mastered the hairstyle switchup.

The way we do it is by wearing protective styles. Protective styles allow us to be versatile while also preserving the fragility of our natural hair. It allows us to stray away from heat and chemicals which, if used too much, can do major damage. Now, they do take time to install in many cases but once you have them, you're set for a good amount of time. Protective styles are great for reducing breakage and promoting healthy hair growth.

  • invest in conditioning spray
  • keep your scalp clean
  • don't keep it for too long

With a good bonnet and some edge control, I kept this style for almost three weeks.
