My protective style look book for May!

It's been a while, how's everyone doing? Hope fine! As you all know, May is the month of NO HEAT! So all month long I have kept up with the no heat policy by trying out different protective styles using big plaits, flat twists,bobby pins and I even brought out a wig!

Check them out, be inspired;

ALL PINS!- I held the top half of my hair with bobby pins and turned the ends out into something like a flower and pinned them down, then twisted the back half up and pinned it down! Simple!!

2 BIG BRAIDS IN BUNS :)- Basically divided my hair into 2 sections as the style above and braided them and rolled them into a bun and pinned down.

BIG LOOSE BRAIDS PINNED DOWN; I simply braided my hair in small sections loosely and then I neatly pinned down the ends to the side. 

3 FLAT TWISTS AND A BUN; Nice and easy, learnt how to do a flat twist, super easy if you can braid, made 3 flat twist to the top half of my hair and bun the rest of the hair.

THEN I BUST OUT MY AFRO CRAZY WIG!!- I have not worn a wig in a while and decided to revisit one of my big afro wigs.

But this Wig was crazy BIG!!!
So I brushed it out and cut out the tangles;
Then I made a little bump and stuck the wig combs behind it to cover the wig track;

Then I applied some ecostyler gel to the wig, braided it and let it dry, loosened it and Voila!!!

So there you have it, My protective style look book, get inspired, try some of them out, tweak them if you like, just have fun with it :) Thanks for stopping by!!Welcome to the new member who just joined and to Jambudu, one of my readers for sending in a picture of her thriving hair, with her permission I might just put the picture up here to encourage all the doubters out there, Naija hair can grow o!
