Quick protective styles for the winter months

Protective styles are important during the winter months but not everyone likes the time consuming ones or the ones that take a mid to long term commitment.  Braids, twists and certain style of weaves usually have long installation times, especially if you do them yourself. The last time I installed Senegalese twists it took me 14 hours.  I had to get them done before going on vacation so I couldn’t spread it over a few days.  Because of that experience, as much as I like braids and twists with extensions, I’ve decided to do short to medium term protective styles. It also allows me to take the style out whenever I like without feeling like I’ve wasted the time, effort and expense it took to do.  Next time I do braids or twists with extensions, I would like to try a local braider because they braid much faster and efficiently than I could doing it myself.
