Protective Style for January 2012

I mentioned a few posts ago that I am going to challenge myself to keep my ends tucked in for 6 months. I originally said one year but I want to go a length check at the end of 6 months and go from there.

So this first style was inspired by Alicia Keys (and yes, I know that my hair type is nothing like hers) After googling natural hair styles for a few hoursI came up with a style that I liked for January.

Some of the things that considered when thinking of styles…

is my inability to style my own hair..


Time and maintance


I will go into these things in more detail in my next post, but here are the pictures.

This is with no product in the back (4c hair)

The braids are not too tight, and they are very nea

What do you think? Do you know of any other styles I can transform this hairstyle into? I would love to hear from you.
