    im not sure if a puff is a protective style, but I've found that my hair retained the most length when I did puffs all the time.

    Great news is that you may not need to do protective styles just yet. When your hair is still short, it is not rubbing against your clothes; chances are that your ends aren't playing tricks on you yet either. Enjoy wearing all the out styles that are until your hair shows any signs of actually needing to be protected. Signs include rough ends, split ends, single strand knots at the ends or hair that will not retain moisture, or detangling your hair after it's been out for a few days becomes a 2-hour mission. When you're there, protective styles are definitely in order.

    I definitely need a good protective style. I cant pull all my hair up right now (maybe unless a pull it to death),but it goes a little above my shoulders when I stretch it. My ends knot up sooo easy, even if I put them in twists and roll up the ends. And I've tried twists as a style.. didn't work on me.

    Any suggestions???
