Braid hair styles can be an easy and fun protective style to grow natural hair long. While I transitioned to natural hair individual braids were my main natural hair style.I do not wear individual braids much now but I still enjoy them when I have time to put them in because they allow me the freedom to leave my hair alone for weeks without styling.
If you choose to wear braids there are some important things to remember. While braids can be a great protective style they can also gone damage if not done properly.
Braid hair styles can be challenging because they can take more practice than some of the other styles. Unless you already know how to braid be patient with yourself when learning braid hair styles.
