I have learned to embrace my fro, though I was a bit reluctant at first. I wore my hair in buns when I first went natural two years ago and still do. It was my go-to do. It was quick and easy and it was a safe hairstyle that suited just about any outfit or occasion. But after receding hairlines and terrible headaches from wearing headbands too tight, I’ve decided to start wearing my hair out more with maybe one side pinned up. Wash and go’s are another great way to wear your hair out and the style lasts long.
With the cold weather approaching protective styling is the most effective way to protect the hair, though I haven’t quite mastered protective styling yet, still a work in progress.
