Gosh, ladies, I can't express you you how important PSing is (in my opinion!)
Protective styling is any style that you can put your hair in that leaves it fully protected and tucked away from the elements... These include buns, braids, weaves, and anything else that you ladies (who are more creative than I am) can come up with to keep your strands safe.
Now, protective styling, while it can be a life-saver for your hair, must be done in moderation/with precaution.
When bunning... don't secure your bun too tightly: you could experience hairline breakage from the tension.
The same goes for braids and weaves... super-tight braiding can cause breakage from tension as well.
Also, know when to say when. The last thing anyone wants is to take out their weave/braids to find matting/dreading of the hair underneath!!
So, this is just my brief words on PSing... as you all know, I'm in a personal HYH until December challenge... I used my one "show" pass, so my hair is now tucked away in box-braids for the next three weeks (I've had them in for a little over a week now...)
Hope everyone is well!! HHG!!!
