Within the natural hair community, protective styles are seen as a curly girls best friend and especially important during the summer time. These styles not only allows your hair to be safely tucked away but requires very little maintenance which is perfect for our tresses. From long braids to kinky twists, protective styles are essential due to the promotion of healthy hair growth (if taken care of properly of course). Personally, this was my first time getting braids and boy do I love them! I was also able to chat with Protective Style hair stylist and guru Lynda Jay to get the inside scoop on these styles and the importance of them during a natural hair journey.

I was lucky enough to have Lynda install my braids this past month and can definitely say I love her work. If you are in the Tampa Bay area and in search for an awesome hair (and make up) stylist then look no further because Lynda is your girl.
