Keep It simple sista’s Do’s and Don’t’s

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Thanks to K.I.S.S, there has been a list composed of do’s and don’t’s when it comes to preventing breakage with protective styles.

*All of the information bellow is via K.I.S.S

Your protective style maybe causing breakage .....
To avoid unwanted breakage from protective styling daily...Here are a few Do's and Don'ts


  • Wear Tight Ponytails
  • Metal Accessories
  • Rubber Bands
  • Elastics with metal
  • Hairs Clip and Barrettes that can snag hair
  • Buns and ponytails with wet hair...Hair is weakest when wet ( I wait till my hair is at least damp before bunning)


  • Loose Buns or Messy Buns (alway cute)
  • Elastic Bands with No Metal
  • Good Day Hair Pins (Sold at Sally's )
  • Use 100% Aloe Vera Gel (For Sun Burns) instead of Hair Gel
  • If you know your hair is weak ....I would stick with banana clips or french rolls until hair gets stronger..

I personally bun 90% of the time with no problem...Loose buns are always safe.....

How I achieve my sleek look in my buns...I simply....Use my spritz for my edges ( Can use water)...And lightly finger hair or use a soft brush and finger/brush into a pony tail that is not too tight..I apply my Aloe Vera Gel to just the edges then create my bun....After finishing I put on my Satin Scarf until I leave the house...When I remove my Scarf I have slick edges and a neat protective style ...Without pulling my hair into tight ponytails....
