Easy Protective Styles! (Updos--No Braids or Twists)

My goal is to keep my hair in protective styles to aid in length retention but...I'm not the best at cornrowing or flat-twisting. I'm a college student so spending hours two stand twisting my hair is a luxury I can't afford.

With that said, I've amassed a list of creative protective styles that require no braiding or twisting. All that is needed for these styles is stretched hair, hair pins and/or bobby pins and something to seal your ends before you pin them (castor oil, shea butter, honey, etc). I :love4: these styles because they allow me to express my creativity through my hair while facilitating length retention. I hope this helps! :)
