Protective Bun

protective bun

So, my new favorite style is the bun. I’ve worn it dressy, with jeans and even to lounge around in. Its a great way to protect your ends in the brittle cold temps and it also holds moisture wonderfully. You can even add flare by tilting it to the side or by wearing it towards the back with a bang or headband. So many options!

Check out my quick tutorial for creating a bun.

Enjoy 🙂

I am Tasha and I am the Founder of Naturally Smitten. I have been natural since 2007. I didn’t transition for very long because I was very excited about becoming natural. I BC’d after transitioning for only four months. My 4a/4b (mostly 4b) hair is very thick and coily. It takes a lot to retain moisture. My hair also loves to tangle and knot up! I have had a difficult time finding the “right” product for my hair. Many of the products that I have tried, didn’t leave me with enough moisture. I decided to create a moisturizer that would hydrate and moisturize coarsely textured hair. I want to educate women on how to care for their natural hair and how to maintain healthy length. Follow us at Naturally Smitten as we embark on our journey of loving our natural hair and embracing every coil. Live, learn + love your natural hair!
