How to Keep Your Hair Healthy and Happy in Cornrows
Cornrows are a great protective style, relatively low maintenance, and can look beautiful- but only if braided and cared for correctly. If you are considering this hairstyle, take a look at some tips and tricks for cornrows that not only look good, but are good for your hair as well.
Get cornrows from an experienced braiding stylist
Your hair is a big part of your overall look, so don’t scrimp on it! It’s well worth your time to find a talented hair braider who can provide you with both style and proper technique. Technique is critical to ensure that your hair does not sustain damage and that the braids will have some staying power.
Make sure your hair is long enough for cornrows
Your braids will not turn out well if the stylist doesn’t have enough hair to actually braid. Consult with a Marietta hair stylist specializing in black hair to make sure you can rock this style.
Clean carefully to avoid disrupting your cornrows
Cleansing is important, but if you mess with your braids too much they will not last long. In order to clean your hair and scalp with minimal disturbance to the braids, use a dental water pick or shower massager.
