taking care of protective styles


I just recently started wearing my hair out and trying to protective style. I’ve always used braids, because I didn’t like having to deal with my 4c hair; so it’s a great feeling now, actually embracing my natural hair and learning how to take better care of it. Braiding is a protective style too, but I relied on that so much because I didn’t really like my natural hair. Now, I honestly love everything about it (besides split ends and knots) and it’s a great feeling, because I’ve embraced more of myself as well.
