10 Quick Protective Style Tutorials for Natural Hair

Sigh... It's that time of year again... When wash'n'gos get swapped for braids & twists and 'fros get swapped textured updo's. There something about Autumn that says "it's time to protective style" - I'm guessing it's the arrival of the colder weather, getting back in to school/college/uni and really who wants to be waiting for a wash'n'go to dry in temperatures just above freezing (well at least here in the UK) but of course, I digress.

So I wanted to compile a list of ten super quick, very easy protective styles for those of us who may have a hectic/busy lifestyle and cannot spend more then 30mins-1hr styling hair but also for those us who just don't have patience to spend more then 30 minutes doing a hair style. So check out the videos and let me know what protective styling will you be doing this autumn?
