protective styling

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been passing time playing with my hair. Well, not playing playing, really just trying out different protective styles. Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of natural hair information sources talk about the importance of protecting the ends of your hair—since it’s the oldest and therefore, most vulnerable part of your hair. I can’t wear twists outs or braid outs here in the Dominican Republic, because the humidity just makes my hair shrink right up, and it would take me forever to detangle it all again. But that’s probably a good thing, because it really forces me to go with protective styling. I’m a fan of kimmaytube on youtube, and in this video, she talks about how using water, a leave in conditioner and protecting (tucking in) your ends helps retain length. Here are some styles I’ve been sporting lately:

1 Corin. 15:57-58
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
