Braids as a protective style-Irene Kamau

I know in my earlier blogs I have mentioned a lot about protective styles.When I talk of protective styles, I mean styles that protect your hair. This includes styles such as, braiding,weaving, threading, buns and all the styles you can think of that ensure that hair is locked in and is not out there exposed.

The texture of African hair tends to dry out very fast and is prone to breakage especially when subjected to unnecessary combing and moisture deprivation. This is the main reason why I insist that one ought to be gentle when de-tangling their kinky hair.
Protective styling is not meant to make hair long but rather to help retain length. Therefore the popular myth that braiding hair makes it long, is just but a mere myth.
Hair will grow, naturally,with or without braiding, braiding is only beneficial in that it helps protect our hair and maintains its length.

Remember if you find difficulty in finger de-tangling, then you can opt to use wide- toothed comps, in order to reduce breakage.

Any response tweet me @irenekamau78
