Hello friends! Before I say anything else, let me say, brrrrrrrrrrr, baby, it’s cold outside! And for that very reason, I have tucked my natural hair away. One of my favorite and super easy protective style is wearing my hair in a bun. For the past week, I have been wearing my hair in this jumbo bun due to the frigid weather. I don’t have to re-do the bun each night. I sleep with a silk scarf and also my satin bonnet. Double the protection! In the morning, I simply take them off and my hair is still laid to perfection. 🙂
Here are some other posts that I’ve done with my hair in buns. You can see a major difference in how big and full my bun is now that I am natural versus how smaller they were when I had a perm.

For those of you that are not familiar with what “protective styling” is, here is the definition. A protective style is one that requires little to no manipulation of the hair. Meaning, you don’t have to comb your hair every day once the style is done. Hence the name, it’s purpose is the protect the hair or give it a break from daily styling, tugging, combing, brushing, and overall decreasing the wear and tear on your hair. Protective styles include but are not limited to weaves, braids, wigs, twists and my favorite, wearing your hair in a bun.
