Protective Styling

Howdy folks! Today I wanted to ask you about Protective Styles. I made a resolution at the beginning of 2010 to protect my strands and I’m sad to say I haven’t been doing the best job. So I plan to crack down and really work hard at moisturizing and protective styling to get to where I wanna be… So my question is how are you protective styling and do you feel its beneficial to your hair? I’d love to hear from you …Be Blessed and Stay Natural =)
