I should have posted this last Sunday when I originally had it done but I got tied up (almost literally). Here's my t week protective style which was inspired by MsTanish1 on YouTube.
During the 1st week I had wore the front part in twists, did a twist out, combed out fro, and by Saturday I decided to do fingers coils before I lost my mind. So it will be like this until I take it down next weekend (I think, I might add an extra week if Im lazy). My braids are still tight a week later.
