Braids and cornrows have the option of being a protective style. They also allow the flexing on eyeballs with a super hot design.

The four seasons can be difficult for black hair. In different parts of the country, the elements can be pretty rough on our thirsty roots. Some freshly braided tresses can give us peace.
