While some hairstyle trends are leaving as we approach the end of the Winter season, some new ones seem ready to go. For african hair, one of those trends happens to be going "au naturel". Many people have taken the natural route to help keep their hair healthy, and if you ask anybody, it's a known fact that searching up and down for ways to stay away from heat and chemicals isn't such a walk in the park. 

Through experience, as well as research, protective hairstyles, including yarn twists, updos, tree braids and curls produced by either braid outs, or twist outs, are the best way to go. So here are some cute and easy hairstyles you can do to protect your hair from harmful chemicals and the harsh cold weather.
