Spring and Summer Protective Style

My birthday was on Wednesday and I decided to do a style that I wore quite often before I started my hair journey.  This was a protective style (but at the time I didn't really know that lol)! I used to wear my hair like this especially in the summer when it was too hot for a ponytail or to wear my hair down.  The humidity and temperatures in MO can be quite something to deal with. 

In this particular pic I wanted a thicker bun, so I braided the extension hair in a thick, long braid and wrapped around my braid.  If I want it to be thinner, I just separate a smaller portion of braid hair and do exactly the same thing.  Sometimes I add hair candy to it.  I got lots of compliments on this style and it was quite cool for a spring day!!!  I think this is gonna be my go to style for the Sunday's we have picnic/church outside.  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day my friends!!!
