Try any of these protective styles and see if you experience more hair retention. But please be patient, things do not happen over night :-). Taking pictures from time to time of your Curly Gurlz' hair progress will help you compare progression.
Other protective hairstyles include bantu knots, box braids, banding, african threading, low pony's (with your ends tucked away) and weaves/extensions/clip on pony's and etc... We personally do not use weaves or extensions on our BCG's hair simply because of personal preferences. We have found that the use of the protective styles previously listed have been beneficial in providing them with healthy hair. Protective styling can be considered as styles that don't require so much work and mostly protect the hair ends. For more pictures of these type of styles please click on the tabs "Styles" and "Braids/Twists" on the right and you will be directed to a variety of pictures.
