Blogmas Day 4| Hairstyle Inspiration For Christmas

Welcome to blogmas day 4.

Dry season is upon us and it’s a perfect excuse to get that protective style saved as a screenshot in your phone. And Christmas is approaching so we need to make our Christmas hair. Is anybody too mature for Christmas hair? Not me sha.

Anyway, I’m bringing you a protective style lookbook to inspire your next hairstyle.

Knotless Braids

If you’ve not had knotless braids done yet, you totally should. Don’t let 2020 pass without you doing this hair. I can’t overemphasize how much this style is beautiful and actually protects your hair. I gave all the tea on knotless braids here.

Distressed/butterfly locs

This is the trending hairstyle right now and I’m not mad because it’s such a cute hairstyle. Perfect for harmattan season because your hair s locked away.

Passion twists

This was the craze of 2019 but the hair is here to stay. I prefer it over regular Senegalese twists. It’s a really beautiful hairstyle.

Bantu knots

A hairstyle that takes your hair off your shoulders. But this hair is so hard to sleep with. It’s cute though, so if you can forfeit your comfort while sleeping then go ahead.

Feed in Braids

This hairstyle always gives me a Chic vibe. It’s so beautiful when properly done.

Fulani Braids.

Another beautiful hairstyle. It’s a half feed in, half box braid hairstyle.

Are you getting a protective style this period? Or have you done on already? Let me know which look is your favourite.

    • I love passion twists too. But I want to get the butterfly locs soon. I’ve not tried locs at all before though.
      I hope to get them in a length that I can also pack up because like you said, the heat is crazy.


  1. Really nice hair ideas. I plan on doing knotlees braids for Christmas and butterfly locs when we finally resume and I love the Fulani braids too but I fear it’ll ruin my edges that are not great .

    • It’s actually the other way round for me. Butterfly locs for Christmas then knotless braids for when school resumes.
      Me too. I’m scared of ruining my edges. They’re really fragile.


  2. I’m thinking of doing the butterfly locs. I’m pretty tired of knotless braids already.
    The last time I tried Fulani braids, I carried it for barely two weeks and my edges suffered it. Not again😂.
    Usually when I do bantu knots, I loose the knots at night and knot the braids again, when I’m going out. If you know what I mean.

    • Me too. I’ve had enough of knotless braids so I’m getting butterfly locs. Have you had any form of faux locs before?

      I have fragile edges too. Plus hairstylists think that if they don’t grip all your edges then the hairstyle won’t turn out well.

      I got so fed up with Nigerian roadside salons and I can’t afford those really standard natural hair salons so I’ve opted to be doing my hair myself. I no longer have headaches when I get my hair newly done.

      • I’ve not had any form of faux locs yet. This is going to be my first and I’m excited.

        Hairstylists are a different type of evil. How do you drag and tighten someone’s hair against their will? It’s usually so painful.

        I’m still learning to do my hair myself. It’s really hard, but I guess it’s so hard because I’m still learning.
        Natural hair salons are really pricey😭😭

      • Same here.

        I’m telling you. They want their work to be fine, but they’re forgetting there’s something called discomfort.

        I hope you get the hang of it soon.

        Tell me about it! But I hope to give myself a treat soon enough and just go to a natural hair salon to have a pamper session. I’ve only been to the salon once since I turned natural but I’ve not had anybody wash my hair yet.
