Quick and Easy Protective Style – The Twisted Bun

Hello there and happy Monday!

So, this is my second week of protective styling and I’m enjoying it so far. I’m trying out different styles and my hair is getting a break from heat. This week I cowashed with Hello Hydration conditioner, then deep conditioned with V05 Moisture Milk (I added coconut oil, and wild growth oil), then detangled with Kinky Curly Knot Today (which is AMAZING, by the way!). So after I did all that, I realized that I had no idea how I was going to style my hair. I mean nothing was coming to mind. Then I remembered that I had an extra pack of kanekalon braiding hair left over from some twists I had last summer and decided to do a high twisted bun.






This was my first time doing this style and I think I did ok. Next time, however, I think I’ll use two packs of hair instead of one. Hopefully this style can last all week. It only took about 15 minutes to complete. I’m loving it so far.

What styles are you wearing to protect your hair this winter season? I’d love to hear from you!

Thank you so much for reading!

    Really cool protective style. I never think of buns as protective but they totally are.

      Thank you! I’ve been experiencing breakage and protective styles are the only way I can retain length during the winter months.

    It turned out cute. If you use another pack it will be good and full for you.

    That looks so pretty on you! I especially like it with the winged liner. I wish I could pull a bun off like that.

      Thank you Alicia! I can’t wait until the summer so I can get my twists back in. Don’t you just love them?
