Benefits of wearing Braids as a Protective Style:
Braids are one of the best protective styles to wear this year. They allow you to take a break from styling your natural/relaxed hair daily. As well as, they protect the health of your hair from daily manipulation. And more importantly, they will have you looking like a whole new person for a week.
Here are 4 benefits of wearing braids as a protective style:
1 – The installation is affordable Firstly, installing braids costs less than other protective styles at salons. For example, if you plan to install a wig it’s going to cost you significantly more. Whether the wig installation is for a frontal or a closure, you will have to pay a pretty penny. So, if you are looking for an affordable protective style for yourself this year, braids are the best option. Ensure to shop around at different hair salons in and around your area to find the right one for you.
2 – Simple & Easy Daily Maintenance Braids require little to no daily maintenance or upkeep. They are perfect if you have limited time to take care of your hair. You can wake up and head out the door without having to worry about your hair. After a couple of weeks, your hair will have a little frizz. However, this can be tamed using mousse and edge control if needs be. Whether you are a mom, corporate-focused, or are grinding to build your empire, braids are suited for your lifestyle.
3 – Multiple braided styles to choose from Braids are one of the categories of protective styles that you can choose from. There are multiple types of braids such as box braids, knotless braids, cornrowed braids, Marley braids, crochet braids, and so much more. In addition, you can choose whether you want these braids to be parted into small, medium, or large sizes. As well as, whether you want a side or middle part. Therefore, no two braided styles look the same as everyone has different preferences for their results.
4 – Versatile hairstyle for any occasion
Now that you have selected your braided hairstyle, it is time to take it up a notch. If the braids are getting old or frizzy, you can always restyle them. This is perfect if you have a special occasion where you need your braids to be looking fresh. You can do a ponytail, bun, and/or half up/ half down. There is another hairstyle for you to choose from that would be suited for any occasion. Although your braids may be looking old, the world will never know (how will they know?).
Now that you know you can do braids, the next questions are where you get it done. When getting your braids done, you must find the best hairstylist who is licensed, professional, and has experience with your hair type as well as cares for the health and length of your hair.
