Adding accessories to your curly hair gives you an opportunity to experiment with your look whether you are rocking your natural hair or wearing a protective style.Scrunchies
Scrunchies didn’t have to make a comeback, because they never really went out of style–they were just reinvented! Now you can find scrunchies in all sorts of patterns, textures, and fabrics. They are perfect for buns, updos, and braided styles.
Metal cuffs make the perfect curly hair accessories because they are super simple to put in. They come in a variety of shapes and colors and look amazing in a variety of curl types!
TurbansTurbans are chic and really require little effort. They are perfect for bad hair days, or for running out the house quickly while still looking put together.

Last night before I got in the shower, I saw what looked like poison ivy. I never got poison ivy growing up, but since my husband has become a farmer, it’s happened more times than I care to mention. In fact I just told my husband last night that moments like that make me hate the farm. But truthfully, I could never hate the farm.
Turbans have come a long way, and are available for babies, toddlers, and adults.Grace Eleyae makes a beautiful collection of headgear–from turbans to beanies, to satin-lined caps, they get the importance of keeping curly hair tangle-free without compromising effort or style.
Wooden beadsThe old plastic beads from the 80s have been given a makeover through wooden beads. They are the perfect accessory for all sorts of curly hairstyles!
The trick with wooden beads is having a tool to thread them with. I suggest a threader that isn’t cheap plastic. I used the one that came with the beads at the hair store and it broke after threading 1 set of beads.
You may also want to check the width of the beads against the size of your braids. The smaller the opening, the harder it is to thread. But once you have added beads to your look, you won’t regret it!
I love my curls, but every now and then, your girl needs a break from the daily grind of washing and styling.One of my favorite protective styles is braids. Right now I’m wearing passion twists and I’ve been decorating them with colorful yarn and strings.

I decided to help my hubby collect eggs & pick sorrel so that he could get home earlier. I changed out of my work clothes & into.his farm gear. The only problem? No scrunchie for these long cute #passiontwists. I’ve been wearing them for a month now & have new growth like whoa. Whenever I wear a protective style, I try to get my money’s worth out of it. And let’s be real….mornings with little to no hair maintenance is the life I like. So I think I’ll be getting these again👍🏾
The yarn takes just takes a few minutes to put in. All you have to do is cut it the length you want, tie it at the top of your braid, then criss-cross the yarn/string down your braid.I love mixing up the colors to accessorize my look. You can find braid yarn/string at your local hair store, Sally Beauty Supply or on Amazon.
