Your Hair Questions Answered
Q: The weather is warm and I want a low maintenance hairstyle and I'm thinking about braiding my hair. My question is, does braiding your hair helps it grow?
BHD: Braiding your hair is a great low maintenance protective hairstyle. With braids, your hair get a rest from heat and many harsh styling products. However, it's still very very important to keep your hair moisturized.
As far as, growing your hair; remember your hair is always growing. The key is to keep your hair healthy and strong. Braids can aid in growing your hair if its done correctly and not too tight. The benefit of braids is that your hair is allowed to rest in its natural state.
Don't be alarmed when you take out your braids and you see a decent amount of hair on your comb. Remember your hair sheds daily and this is just a build up of daily shedding over time.
