♥♥Protective Styling: MJB Inspired Hair♥♥

Hey ya'll! the colder months are here, and of course that means protective styling will be in effect! For those of you who don't know what protective styling is, it is simply tucking the ends of your hair away/keeping them off your back where they will be rubbing against your moisture-stealing clothing, as well as be exposed to the elements of the environment.

The ends of our hair are the oldest part and need the most care. To retain your hair's length you must protect your ends, and pamper them by keeping them moisturized, because this is where the most breakage can occur. 

Here's a simple tutorial on how to create this hairstyle inspired by Mary J Blige. I absolutely love her and her style.
