Quick Note: Regarding the Cinnabun Hairstyle

So, I have worn the Cinnabun Hairstyle for the past 4 days and I feel it should be noted that this style is NOT the best protective style. I know that some people say its great because the ends are protected and tucked in. However, I have noticed that over the past 4 days that the ends of my hair were shedding more than usual.

I think the reason behind this is that you have to twirl the ends of the hair, then tuck and pin it. When I would take the pins out at night, I would notice that my hair would be REALLY tangled at the end part (where the twirl was). I would try to detangle gently, but I still experienced hair loss.

So, last night I got out my trusty spray bottle and took sections of my hair and started detangling my hair. I should have taken pics of the hair loss. It wasn't that major but, it was more than usual. I feel it could have been worse but, I am patient when it comes to detangling my hair. The amount of hair loss was about the size of a gum ball. (the big kind you buy in the gumball machines).

For the future, I will stick to the protective styles that work best for me--the braid out pinup, the twists, the twist pinup, etc.

Please note: I do adore the elegance of the cinnabun and will put this hairstyle in the category for Special Occasions. Its not gone forever, it just won't appear that often.


  1. Interesting article. I still think the cinnabun is the best protective style for me. It's quick, easy, cute and I can wear it for a week.

    I've never really noticed a difference in shed hair. Every time I detangle, I collect the hair to compare the amount to last week. The amount remains approximately the same despite which style I do. To each her own.

  2. Girl, I totally agree with you. I had a more than usual shedding when I was taking the bins out. It is definitely a special occassion hair. I still like it cause it is so elegant!!!
