GHD Mini Protective Style - Cornrows!

By . - Monday, July 08, 2013

Please excuse the camera phone pics, life has been way too hectic to pull out a real camera. Anyway, as you you can see, I decided to cornrow my hair and resemble a 16 year old. Am I pushing it? Ok, maybe a 20 year old.

I braided my hair on my own as I've been doing for years. I actually do a similar but flatter pattern of braid as a base to my sew-in weaves. Please don't ask me how I braid like this, I have no way to teach you how to cornrow. I wish I could though :)

Left Side

I plan to spray my hair nightly with a moisturizing braid spray and seal with a bit of Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil. I am using the Sunny Isle Rosemary Jamaican Black Castor Oil Hair Pomade on my edges to keep them neat. Stay tuned for a review of the pomade on the blog very soon.

Right Side

I plan to keep my hair like this until Saturday or Sunday when I will wash, deep condition and do it all over again. If I can keep this up and leave my hair alone, I'm sure that I will not only retain length, but my hair will be pleased with me.

Do you protective style during the week? What's your protective style of choice? let us know in the comment section below!

  1. I have a similar corn row protective style in right now. It's kept me out of my hair as I tend to pick at it when it's lose. I love my big curls and love running my hands through em but I've noticed that my hair prefers low manipulation. Gonna do corn rows more.
