Benefits Of Braiding Your Hair
"Braids are not just a style; this craft is a form of art".
Locks in moisture
So did you know that hair can lose moisture while you sleep? There’s a natural release of moisture from your hair, and while you sleep it goes into the air or gets absorbed by your pillow. But braids can help prevent that loss. The overlapping structure of braids can hold onto the moisture to keep it where it needs to be... in your strands.
Pro Tip: Massaging a nourishing hair oil into your hair whilst its wet then braiding your hair can give it an even more softer, moisturizing feel and look.
I mean... who doesn’t want soft, moisturized waves that require no heating tools? If your goal is to rock some gorgeous waves in your hair, waking up and taking out your braids can be a less damaging option.
Whilst you’re getting your beauty sleep, you may not realize it but natural tossing and turning pulls your hair and causes it to break. Keeping your hair in braids reduces friction between your hair and pillow, reducing hair breakage. You can always get silk pillowcases for even less friction too.
It also keeps your hair tamed and more structured, reducing tangles when you wake up in the morning.
Another bonus of braiding your hair? We feel it all comes down to your beauty sleep and waking up in the morning... you can either wake up with beautiful soft hair or wake up with major bed head! Not only do braids: prevent breakage and lock in moisture, braids can help keep fly-away strands and frizz at bay, too. Give it a try!
