Thanks for sharing.....

I have already started my fall protection. Boxbraids! and I'm trying to keep them for a while, not a month like I usually do.
Last year I did mostly chunky twists in a bun. This wkend I decided to try mini twist.
I am thinking of alternating between nubian twists and crochet braids!!! I currently have nubians in and I am quite excited to try out crochet braids
Just going to continue to wear my hair in protective styles, twists/flat twists into buns.

I probably won't do much different...just changing to heavier products. I usually wear twist outs with no issues, but I live in FL so the winter isn't harsh at all. My hair is now long enough for a bun, so I may try those as well to keep my ends up.

Cornrows & twists. Not really for the purpose of protective styling but more for convenience.
I'll probably will be pro styling w/ buns, 2 strand flat twist, and 2 strand twist. Keke52284 on youtube has some awesome videos with different hairstyles for 2 strand twist, so im going to try some of those. Im really not that great with this flat twist yet, but practice makes perfect! Right now im wearing my hair with 2 strand twist on one side, with a bun. Im going to take the bun out and single twist that section. Its going to fun to experiment with my hair! Yea me!

Still loving my curls and kinks!
Products I love:
Ion Dandruff/Seborrheic Dermatitis Tar Shampoo
Suave Shea Butter Conditioner
Biolage Scalp Therapy Shampoo
Biolage Fortify Therapy Shampoo
Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner
Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner
Shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil, apricot oil, peppermint oil, tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil
Twists, twist buns, Kinky twists (I do them myself following naptural85's instructions), moisture moisture moisture, heavier products, more deep conditioning.

I had also considered going straight for a couple of weeks, maybe over xmas, as I have not flat ironed my hair since 2007. I was all set to follow Moptop Maven's tips, but in light of recent developments, I'm not even sure if I can trust those
Products in current rotation:

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far

I'll probably be bunning the majority of time, but I'd love to try two or three strand twists.

I also plan on trying castor oil for heavy sealing and deep conditioning more. I might even DC while I'm at school and just wear a benie to hide it.

For the next few months, I will flat twist my hair and wear a wig I purchased last year. Then I would love to get micro braids, but time and expense may prevent this from happening.

I think it'll be weekly twists or fortnightly/3weekly mini braids, loads of moisture, thicker products (I'll either be stocking up on Qhemet by next week or during the xmas sale), deep treatments, not going out with any sort of exposed wet hair, eating more healthily, drinking more, hats and scarves, pwning at snowball fights, flat twists, bantu knots aplenty, cornrows if I learn how to do them and sealing my hair to the max like a mofo if I ever wear my afro out.
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!
