Im back with a new protective style!!! Individual braids with freetress water wave hair. I cut the packs in half and I used 3 packs for this hairstyle. Just got done with it today so its still fresh. :-) To hold the curls i used gel and extra hold spritz. So far, i absolutely love it!!! They are not heavy, the style cost me about $21 to do, and I am loving all of the curls. The downside is that it took me 7-8 hours to do (did it in 2 days). I will be doing an update on this hairdo and how well it holds up and any styles that i may come up with.
