My Hair: Ponytail Protective Style

We've had a rather mild weather for most part of this Winter in the UK.  This week has seen a harsher cold spell cast on us, brrr!!  If given a choice, I would rather stay home and wrap up my delicate coils in a satin scarf, [Sigh].

To preserve my tresses from the harsh weather, I've decided to protective style for the next couple of months or so.  I had a sew in for a little over six weeks from 9th December, 2011 to 24th January, 2012.  I plan to use instant weaves among others for this challenge.  This way, I can still moisturise and seal my ends every other day.  You'll be updated with the different protective styles I wear on a weekly basis.  Weekly styling is ideal for me due to work...and sheer laziness :).  Besides, I give my hair all the lurving it needs once a week - usually on a weekend.

Protective Style of The Week (PSTW):

Sleeked Ponytail  (bun'ed up)

I prefer 
instant weaves that closely match my curls.

I used good 'ol Ecostyler Gel for the sleek look on clean and moisturised hair.  Night time routine is to simply mist my hair with water, seal with coconut oil and wrap it up in a satin scarf.  Next day's hair looks fresh and protected from any bitterly cold temperature.

Right, bring on the big freeze(!)  Not.

    1. Hi Victoria, I'm afraid I've no idea where you can find the eco-styler gel in Nigeria. Maybe try online to see if you can get it shipped to you from the UK or US. Best of luck :).
