Braided Updo Design on Natural Hair

Hey chicas! Omg, its the first day of April already! Only a few more weeks until my 20th birthday. Time is just flying by, I can't even keep up anymore.

Have you realized how much time we spend in our cars, working or even sleeping? For some of us, we may be getting on average 6-9 hours of sleep at night, to fuel our 24 hour day.

The average American spends

2,352 hours per year sleeping

1,700 hours per year working (full time)

1,008 hours a year on

social media

34 hours a year in traffic

Protective styling can save you an extra 10 to 15 minutes per day off of your morning routine.

Your hair needs a break too.

Today's tutorial features an edgy up-do. I chose to style her hair more towards one side of her head, away from her face for work and to allow her comfortable nights (she can still sleep on either her back or side without any discomfort).

Protective Styling Tips

Opt for minimum tension styling on the hairline to protect your edges/ baby hair from shedding or excessive pulling

Up-do's are great for protecting your ends from breakage due to everyday wear or loose ends

Choose a style that requires minimum upkeep. If your style calls for more than 2 minutes of refreshing, it is NOT a protective style.

Whether you are a full-time student, hairstylist, or Nurse, you know the struggle of being on the go 80% of your life. Save your self some time and protect your hair all in the same effort! You won't regret it!

How often do you protective style per year? Let chat in the comments below
