As a natural girl I try to take good care of my hair as much as possible. I don't do as much as I could and I'm also not as obsessed with my natural hair as some other natural girls are. I have a VERY low maintenance regime. But living in MN means that at this time of the year it's very important for me to take care of my hair due to the extreme cold weather.
The ends of our hair is the most fragile and when exposed it becomes easier for it to break off, so my go to protective style is a bun! This allows me to keep my ends tucked in and it helps my hair retain its moisture.
I have been thinking of braiding my hair, but I'm scared of the tension it would put on my edges (I'm so scared of losing my edges!!!)
It's important to note that you should not do your bun very tight. To achieve this style I used one of those hair tights and secured it with bobby pin. I then started to roll and tuck my ends under and secured each rolled section with bobbi pins.
