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.
