X-post on 4a--Protective Styling--"Hair accessories&quo

Has anyone used a "hair accessory" for protective styling? I recently ran into a few curlies who had natural looking curly weave pieces and I really liked it. I'm wondering if anyone has one and where you purchased it. I don't want the tight fro look nor do I want the curls to be too loose(sp?). Something more in line with the 4a look...any suggestions?
