Braids, as we well know, are always going to look elegant, they are the full on and ultimate hairstyle of that gorgeous black woman and it loves your hair like a duck loves water.  It is a timeless look that can be worn by any woman without paying caution to your personality or age.  It is always going to be fashionable and up to date and it’s always going to look creative and artistic, add something extra special to your wardrobe and give you that fabulous confidence whatever day of the week it may be.  However, they also, like all styles and cuts, will need an element of maintenance, albeit, this look is going to be less than some others out there.  So you’ve found your

dream pattern and you’ve taken it to your stylist and you’re sitting in that salon chair and you’re waiting for them to work their magic.  This is the time that you’re always going to have to remember that you’re going to want to be vocal.  If your braids are in the process of being weaved to perfection and they’re hurting then speak up, don’t be afraid.  This is a process of beauty, it’s not a surgical operation that is going to leave you with headaches for months on end, if they are being done to tightly then say something and say it loud.  The other thing that you need to pay caution to with those oh so fabulous braids is when your head just goes along and hits that pillow at night.  You are going to move around and this means that your braids are too!  All that shifting around is going to bring you some unwanted breakages so get yourself fitted out with a gorgeous slinky and

silky piece of fabric or headscarf and wear it!  Your hair will love you for it as much as we love your beautiful braids!  And on a final and vitally important note, we may love your braids as much as the next person, they may be awarding you some great looks on those sidewalks, some fabulous attention that you know you deserve… but your hair loves moisture like a duck loves water!  You really can’t afford to slip up on those all important moiturizing mists.  It should be a permanent fixture in your handbag and an absolute must on that beauty regime list of things to do.  Your
