5 Easy Protective Styles to Try In Under 10 Minutes

5 Easy Protective Styles to Try In Under 10 Minutes

No matter if you are a new natural, transitioning or been in the game for a few years there’s one thing we can all agree upon: natural hair takes a lot of time!  Between the pre-pooing, co-washing, and deep conditioning sometimes being natural is just a hassle.

Honestly, who really has time for that every week? As a result, I’ve combined 5 easy protective styles you can try in under 10 minutes.  Give your natural tresses a break and put some time back into your day with these looks. Let’s get started!

Quick & Easy Protective Styles

1. Low-braided pony with Kanekalon Jumbo Braiding Hair. Style by Simone Sharice.

This low-braided pony is super cute for any season and/or occasion. Try switching it up by putting your own spin on it with a twist instead of a braid.

2. Low Bun on TWA with Marely Hair. Style by  DolorianLynne.

Who says you can’t wear a bun if you have a TWA (teeny weeny afro)? Although this style requires a little prep work that might take more than 10 minutes, once the hair is laid down the rest is smooth sailing. Plus you can wear this for days afterward.

3. Double Top Knot. Style by Ify Yvonne.

I’m obsessed with styles that incorporate Kanekalon hair. Although synthetic, the texture and density mimic blown out natural hair sooooo well!

4. Flat Twist Updo/Pompadour. Style by AsToldByAllie.

Perfect for medium length hair. I live for a good updo, so this is one of my favorites. I can’t wait to try!

5. Jumbo Flat Twist & Tuck. Style by UnearthedAmber.

For the ladies with a little bit longer hair, these styles by Amber are perfect! As you can see, she’s not using a ton of products and only  few hair bands and bobby pins. Really cute, really simple & really easy.

Which one of these styles are your favorite? Comment and let us know!
