Protective hairstyles have become the secret to tress success for many naturalistas. What are protective styles, you ask? These are braided, twisted, or pulled-back styles that shield the ends of your hair from elements that cause breakage.
At the “What’s Your Number” premiere, Tika Sumpter rocked a super-elegant braided headband over her pulled back ‘do. For Tika’s look, section off the hair around your front edges and straighten it with an ionic blow dryer on low heat. Your hair in the back can be pulled into a bun or cornrowed for a protective style that’s creative and chic!
