Protective Styling Gone Wrong

Okay so I have had my braids on for 2 months now and I miss my hair so much..I am done.
Braids are a great protective style especially in winter, your hair gets tucked in the braids and is hidden away from all the harsh temperatures... but here is where protective styling can go wrong well at least for me...

In my defense, I am a very busy person with a 9 - 5 job while managing 3 blogs, guitar lessons and many other meaningful things to do, I hardly get the time to take care of already "taken cared" of hair, WRONG
See I get it in my head that my hair is protected that I neglect it. This is not only wrong but can be very dangerous for your hair, just to mention a few things I am facing while taking down my braids
1. Dryness
2. Breakage and lots of it
3. Unhealthy hair, growing natural hair is not just about getting those lovely afros that we see our natural sisters rocking, a big part of why I want natural was to have healthy hair..I was tired of chemicals damaging what I thought was great hair, it was time for change. Its important to moisturize, even more when hair is avoid the dryness and breakage once braids have to come down, though I had very thick and long braids on it is still important to watch your hair and keep it clean and healthy!

I will be using to products once I am done removing my braids I have not used these products before and will do a review on them soon
