What are your favorite Protective Styles?
My favorite go to protective styles are any type of crochet braid styles, Wigs or any style thats less manipulation. Looking at my natural journey I've been mostly protective styling so that I can reach my hair goal. At times I'll give my hair a break and wear my natural hair.
What advice would you give to other naturals starting out on this journey?
Patience is key to this journey, at times you get frustrated with the time it takes with wash day, detangling, styling and etc. Don't compare your journey to no one, everyone's hair grows at different rates. Have fun try out different styles, learn what hair products your hair likes & dislikes. Make sure to take proper care of your hair through this journey getting trims when need, deep conditioning etc. Being natural is so versatile you can have straight hair one day & curly the next.
