For years, I was afraid to embrace my natural hair. I have been natural since I was in the 10th grade, but I have never really embraced all of the wonderful hairstyles out there until recently. I have been doing hair as a hobby since I was 13, when I gave my mother micro braids. Although I have always been concerned about hair health (which is why I originally went natural), I many times found it hard to find simple protective styles that did not take 8 hours, and would last. Recently I have been playing around with Marley Hair (kinky twist hair) and trying different simple protective styles.
As a natural, I understand the importance of limiting the amount of product and stress to my hair and the importance of keeping the ends of my hair protected. This is a style that I created that takes less than an hour and could last weeks! So if you are natural, and want to change it up a bit, try different styles with Marley hair. You can do pretty elegant buns (which is my go-to wedding hairstyle), and you could even just pin it in your hair to add length and volume. The possibilities are endless!
