5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Braids During The Winter Months

Protective, cute and they last for 2 months – all while making sure those textured tresses are sealed away from external agents? Yes, sounds good to us!

1. Keep curls & coils protected

As we know, when the weather is cooler the air has less humidity. Thus, restricting our textured tresses to collect the environments moisture. This means that we have to consistently ensure that our curls are getting extra TLC during the cooler climates. This is where braids play a healthy role.

As our curls and coils are wrapped away in beautiful braids, so is the moisture from our products. Allowing for the products to penetrate more effectively and seal in moisture, whilst the braids act as a barrier to keeping that moisture locked in.

However, this does not mean that we can skip out on a solid LOC regimen. You must ensure those tresses are still being attended to accordingly for optimal hair health and growth.

2. Low manipulation & tension

Braids are great for giving your coils a break. As your tresses are wrapped and tucked away, this means less manipulation, tension and breakage from external agents. When going to the salon, we advise making sure that you ask your hairdresser to not braid too tightly as this will lead to excess tension.

3. Great for length retention

As your natural hair is tucked away, it is being protected from external agents that vary from chemical, physical and environmental factors. Thus, allowing the hair to be left alone and increasing the likability of length retention and growth.

4. Lower maintenance

Just because they are lower maintenance, doesn’t mean that they don’t need to be cared for. Remember, a protective style is only protective if you implement a solid LOC regimen and clean the scalp fortnightly (at least).

5. Simply stunning

There are SO many gorgeous variations of braids! Box braids, Ghana Braids and Senegalese twists to name a few! Why not revamp your style and keep those curls and coils protected during winter too?!

Count us in to be rocking the beautiful braids this winter! Will you be too?
