26 Lively African American Braids

Instead of a perm, why don’t you try braids this season? If you have long hair that is unmanageable, you can give African American braids a try. These braids give you endless options to choose from, besides the minimal care that they need! Try micro braids in various styles; you could lift them in a bun at the back , make a pony tail or just leave them as it is. How about cornrows combined with your braids? If you like, you could go in for thick braids. Whichever style you plan to adopt, you will invite admiring glances.

Next time you go in for braids, try the African American style. With a little bit of imagination you can come up with stunning results. Your hairstyle gives you a neat look which you can keep for a period of time. Just a few words of ‘hair’ advice- if you do not want an itchy scalp, moisturize your scalp with hot oil a week in advance. Be sure your braids are not done too tightly so as to avoid damage to your hair. Use a mild shampoo with a conditioner and rinse your hair well. So go ahead and toss your braids!
