Having your hair in braids is more than just a cute style–it has some good benefits toward your hair, as well! First, braids can help keep the length of your hair by protecting your scalp and ends. Not brushing or detangling your hair constantly will also help with the breakage by not putting so much stress on it!
I definitely recommend putting in a leave in conditioner such as our Aveda Nutriplenish before braiding, that way the moisture stays locked in within the braid, and keeps it healthy. Who knew such a cute, heatless style had more benefits to it than just the looks?
