I recently changed my Facebook profile picture and got many comments from friends telling me how gorgeous I look.
I received their compliments graciously, but to tell you the truth, I half-expected them.
It’s not that I am vain or full of myself (at least I don’t think so); rather, I am just fully aware of how flattering plaited hairstyles are on me.
In fact, that’s why I chose to style my hair that way.
I was going away on vacation with a special someone and wanted to make sure that I looked beautiful—all the time—with minimal fuss.

Reasons to Braid Your Hair
The beauty of braided hairstyles is something African women have known for ages.
Personally, I braid my hair for several reasons.
First, as I mentioned earlier, braided hairstyles are particularly flattering (not just on me but on most women).
Second, they are incredibly practical.
For the relatively short amount of time it takes to get my hair braided—anywhere from 1-17 hours depending on the hairstyle—I get hassle-free, beautiful, neat hair for the next 2 weeks to 3 months (again depending on the style).
Braided Hairstyles Are Always Evolving
Though braiding has existed for a long time, braided hairstyles are far from old-fashioned.
I’ve been braiding my hair for 30+ years and still, I always manage to find a new hairstyle to try.
When in Nairobi, I look forward to my bi-monthly visits to Kenyatta Market to try one of the many trending hairstyles in Kenya, for example, a hairstyle that is currently all the rage are Ghanian lines in Nairobi.

Minimizing Hair Damage
Some women are wary of braiding their hair because they say it leads to hair breakage and hair loss.
Otherwise, when hair is braided by a skilled braider who knows not to braid too tightly nor attach hair extensions to too small amounts of hair (and braids are not kept in for longer than advised), then all should go well and braiding can, in fact, help grow hair by protecting it from the damage that results from everyday grooming.
All types of hair can be braided—not just African hair.
If you have never had your hair braided before, why not try this age-old African beauty secret? I think you just might like the results.
