What you need is a protective style.  A protective style is essential to keep all of your hair safely tucked away.  It's a hairstyle that requires very little to no work, utilizes braiding hair and/or hair extensions, and keeps hair hydrated and healthy.

Overall, a great protective style promotes hair growth because you're not pulling, tugging, or applying heat to your hair.  Take a look at some of these cute protective styles.

Faux Locs

To achieve faux locs, your hair is braided into individual box braids and then wrapped with yarn, synthetic or textured human hair like Indique's SEA Collection Fiji Curl.
