I love Winter. I love my boots, patterned stockings, oversized jerseys, cuddling with my guy, cozy nights at home, electric blankets, soulful soup and the rain. I love the rain! So why am I dreading this winter? Why do I feel as if I would like nothing more than to hibernate for the next few months. Can one take hibernation leave? Why do bears get to have all the fun!?
|Crying because I have to say goodbye to my wash n go’s|
I think one of the main reasons I’m not feeling this Winter is because I know that it is time to put my hair away. Yes, I’m talking protective styling. If you know me, you know that I am what is referred to as the lazy naturalista. I am a spritz, oil and cream kinda girl and I love it that way. The bigger my hair the better. Since Winter is coming ( oh you knew I was going to use the Stark motto – don’t even pretend) I have decided that it is time to say goodbye to the bossiekop all in the name of protecting her – queue lamentful music below…
Sigh… Okay, that was a bit overly dramatic with the rain in the background but you get what I’m trying to say, right?
What is protective styling?
Google describes protective styling as the following:
A protective style is any coiffure configuration that keeps your ends safely tucked away. These hairdos require very little daily upkeep and help strands stay moisturized.
Protective styling is:
- Low maintenance
- Fantastic for retaining growth
- Keeps your hair soft and manageable
- Great for eliminating knots and breakage.
