Does this sound familiar? You want your short hair to grow, but it's too short for protective styles like buns and braids. Are you going to be stuck in a cycle of no growth retention because your tresses aren't yet long enough to create 'dos that keep those ends up and out of sight?
Not to worry! Your hair doesn't have to be long to enjoy the benefits of protective styling. Sure, you may not have the same level of versatility as someone with 12 inches of hair, but you do have options. Check out protective styles for short hair if your mane is several inches long or less.
