Hey, I was just wondering if you knew any protective styles that would be best for me going away to university? I'm no good with doing my hair at all, and my hair is pretty short. Once I'm gone to school, I won't be able to get it done for about four months (when I'm back at home). Any ideas?
Rope Twists/Senegalese Twists, Box Braids, or Plaits will be the best protective style to last you that long. You would just have to keep it up because of new growth and you will still need to take care or your hair (moisturizing it, etc.) as usual.
