Braided Hairstyles You Need to Try Next
Finally, summer is right around the corner and that means it’s time to show off your best protective styles. Sure, you can wear protective styles any other time of the year, but because of the summer heat, most curlies like to tuck their hair away when doing outdoor activities, like traveling, swimming and laying on the beach.
If you’re the queen of braided styles, we’ve gathered more than a dozen for you to send to your stylist to try next.
No matter if you’re looking to add a bit of length or color to your braids this summer, there is truly a style for everyone.
One of the biggest questions I always get is, “how long should I keep my braids in before removing them?” The answer to this question depends on a lot of factors like how often you typically wash your hair and your hair type.
Some hair types may not hold a braided style as long as others. Also, some curlies may feel the need to wash their scalps after just a few days with braids.
Be sure to listen to your scalp to know when it’s time to remove the braids and wash. If you begin to see product buildup, an irritated scalp or any sort of damage, that is your cue.
