Many Black women (including myself) love using protective styles as a way to give our natural hair a break from styling, keep our hair strands healthy, and switch things up every now and then.
So, I want to know all about your go-to/favorite protective styles for your natural hair!
Like, maybe you're always down for some classic box braids, and you've been able to create fun styles to make them your own.
Or maybe you are a ~pro~ when it comes to wigs and weaves — and you even have handy tips when it comes to installing or caring for them.
Perhaps you love the versatility of crochet braids, and you have cute and creative ways you like to style them.
Or perhaps you often wear your natural hair in updos, like buns, pineapples, or Afro puffs — and you have some unique looks to show off.
Or mayyybe you have some go-to styles when it comes to twists, and they're super easy and super stylish.
We want to see it all! In the comments below, tell us about your favorite protective style and styling tips for it. And feel free to share a ~photo~ of you rocking the style! The best responses will be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
