Okay, maybe it doesn’t grow your hair, but it sure does help with length retention. Using plaits as helped me retain a lot of length during the winter months. So they are my go to when I “can’t be bothered” with my hair.
Plaits are no stranger to most of us. If you have ever worn cornrows or had extension box braids, you know what a plait looks like. They can be done in micro sizes, done in medium or in larger sizes called Goddess braids.
I usually wear mine in small to medium sized plaits, and let them stay for about a month or two. I have a youtube video showing how I wash and maintain while my hair is in the plaits.
Here are a few pics of my hair whilst in plaits:
This is by far my most favorite protective style. It lasts so long! And I style them in many ways once they are in. I treat them as though they were extensions/micros and I can curl, puff, pin them as I please. Good thing is they don’t stress my edges because I don’t do them super tight at the roots, I also leave about 1/2 inch un-plaited so when I co-wash it curls up really nicely and gives me more body. Be sure to watch the video. What’s your favorite protective style? I want to know…
Stay blessed and Afroniquely You!
