Braided hairstyles are worn by black women. In general, black women’s hair is much more prone to damage and breakage than is other women’s hair because of the fact that it does not hold moist well. Besides, the hair tends to be rather coarse and curly. Black women do not wash their hair as often as other women do.
Therefore, braids are indeed an excellent choice for black women since you can readily clean your scalp without having to wash the hair. The hair can be easily braided in thick braids or in thin ones, which depends on your preference.
Once you have created braids in your hair, they can be styled in various ways day to day. Here is an example of hairstyle with braids.
First, the type of braided style is the Micro braids, which are a common style seen on black women. They commonly appear on African American women.
Since they are rather hard to do on yourself, they should be done at a beauty center or salon by a professional hairstylist.
It commonly takes several hours to have your whole head braided in this style. Therefore, most women that have it done wear the hairstyle for quite a long time.
Micro braids are delicate as well as tiny and can be simply worn in ponytails, updos, and some other styles. In order to keep them look great, you should mist them frequently using hair oil. That should keep your hair moisture and help you to deal with, possibly, coarse hair.
