Goodbye, wash and go’s! Hello, protective styles!
That’s right, it’s been way too cold to entertain the thought of me letting my hair dry on its own. It’s not a part of my winter routine.
Over here on the East Coast side of the U.S., the colder months can be brutal to both our immune systems and our hair shafts!
When the New Year rolls around I coordinate a cute holiday protective style. I want my hair ends to remain intact whilst still looking like Beyoncé’s hairstylist slayed my mane.
Though a simple bun would suffice in colder times, buns can get boring. I like to jazz up my ponytail with inexpensive hair tracks and a goddess braid to give it some pizzazz!
I do this look in four (4) simple steps.
- Detangle my hair with my Denman brush and favorite conditioner
- Gel my hair and mold it into a low bun
- Wrap my tracks around my bun and secure it with bobby pins
- Braid extra branding hair and secure the braid around my head
Now if this seems confusing, have no fear.
I have a video on this style that I rocked last year for the new year!
You don’t have to add the goddess braid if you feel like it’s too much. Keep in mind the addition of the added tracks helps to cover your hair ends.
