It is the season of protective styling.  You might ask, what are the benefits of protective styling?  Your hair stays moisturized longer.  It prevents breakage, tangles and retains length.  Protective styling is basically tucking your hair away and protecting your ends from harsh weather conditions.  It can be achieved on any length of hair ( short and long hair).
