Are braids good for black hair? 

 Braids are a sign of luster for black hair and it has been existent for a very long time, forming a sense of recognition for the community. But are braids good for black hair? 

If maintained well, yes, braids are good for black hair, given it is well woven and intact. But getting it braided is a long process and can be a lot for your hair.

So before you make the decision of braiding it, make sure your hair is in the best of health to withstand it. It also impacts the growth of the hair since the strands are not separated but clumped together.

To give the utmost care for your hair, follow these tips for the best of results. 

  • Condition your hair thoroughly before you get it braided. 
  • Detangle your hair completely using a detangling brush, because braiding tangled hair is only imposing further damage. 
  • Consider using cornrows if you want extensions. 
  • Before you put on new braids, give your hair enough break to settle in. I would say about 2 to 3 weeks. 

How can I sleep without ruining my braids? 

 While braids can be this perfectly well-settled hair to look at, there is a lot of maintenance that goes for it to remain flawless. Here are some tips to follow while sleeping to maintain your braids, 

  • Invest in a silk pillow. The silk treats your hair just right especially when you’re tossing and turning all night!
  • A leave-in conditioner is a must. This makes sure you have all the moisture to be in place by the time you wake up in the morning. 
  • Wear a headband to protect your braids from changes. Choosing the right headband is another important step in maintaining braids. 

How do you shower with braids? 

Showering with braids can be a tough process. While and after! 

Here are some must-dos’ in the shower that can help ease the process for you. 

  • Use the right conditioner and shampoo. The choice has to adhere to anti-frizz. The way you apply it also has a great impact on maintaining braids. Apply a considerable amount on the scalp rather than on the braids. 
  • Use the right conditioner as conditioning is one of the first things you have to follow while opting for braids. It can get tough after it dries up if it isn’t conditioned. 
  • After the shower, dry your braids by wrapping them up in a towel rather than just rubbing them against the towel which can cause damage. 

How long should I keep my braids? 

Opting for braids can have a lot of excitement involved which does not take the health of your hair into consideration at all.

While the braids will look creative and fun on you, you will have to make sure not to keep changing them. Ideally, it is necessary to leave the braids on for 7 to 8 weeks before you replace it.

If you have extensions imbibed within, find time sooner to change it since it can ruin the strands of the hair. 

Braids are one of the most versatile hair types. You can easily look different every day of the month. But of course, you&#;ll be spending most of your time at the salon. If you are looking for everyday hairstyles braids, then check out the options we covered above!

Is it better to braid black hair wet or dry?

We would suggest that braiding your hair when it is completely dry is what is required to have healthy hair and not have breakage.

Ethnic black hair can be quite sensitive and can break off when its still wet. It is always better off when it is dry.

#1: Criss-Cross Goddess Braids

Chunky cornrow braids, referred to as goddess braids, are perfect for days when you want to give your hair a break or when you are going on a beach vacation and would rather not worry about styling your strands every morning. The great thing about the braids of this size is that they don’t take too long to do and are easy to take out.

#2: Dynamic Side-Swept Cornrows

#3: Asymmetrical Goddess Braids

Mix plaits of different sizes into braid hairstyles to create texture and dimension. Combining chunky and thin braids is unexpected. It’s also a lot more exciting than regular plaits. The unique parts keep the hairdo fresh and fun. Add beads or gold cuffs for the final touch of personalization.

#4: Long Chunky Black Braids

Chunky box braids are totally in style. With alternating thin braids, the hairdo feels very hot. What makes extensions so priceless is how you can experiment with volume and length. You can style your hair in ways your natural locks wouldn’t allow.

#5: Feed-In Braids

#6: Braided Ponytail

As wonderful as braids can be to create interesting protective styles, braiding hair can sometimes feel heavy when it comes to hairstyles with individual plaits. A cornrow ponytail is great for a casual updo that won’t pull on your edges.

#9: Thin Black Box Braids with Burgundy Highlights
