My hair is natural and I must say it is one of the most stubbornest hair I have ever seen. It is as hard as rock (lol). The catch here is, I am really lazy when it comes to keeping my hair from breaking.
The salon and braids are my worst my enemies. I just hate going to the salon and putting my hair in any kind of braid. These two are just so painful for me. But, I had a change of heart regarding to how I keep my hair because, I saw that I was mistreating my hair which was not fair.
So, I got my self some natural hair products annnd started putting my hair in protective hair styles. I won’t lie and say my hair has increased in volume. Nope far from that but it is softer and manageable now. Number 13 is my most favorite style now.
All these protective hair styles can help protect your hair and you should try them out to see which one suits your hair.
