Hairstyles for African women
Apart from people of African origin, others struggle with understanding the African hair. As such, the description of the hair may vary from one person to another. Some of the words used to describe African hair include kinky, afro, “wooled,” spiraled, and others that may not be appropriate.
Unfortunately, not everybody comprehends the beauty of the hairstyles for African women-more so natural hairstyles. The afro-texture is a blessing in disguise as you can do just about anything with the hair. Since you can, here are the latest hairstyles for you.
Latest braid hairstyles
It seems like braids never go out of season as people find innovative ways to rock them and still look fresh. Ladies prefer braids because they help in hair growth (length and volume), and they are a great protective hairstyle. Also, braids flatter all face shapes. Apart from the multiple styling options for braids, braids give you the opportunity to have colored hair without dying your hair.
Also, braids come in different textures, patterns, colors, and shapes. The African hair can handle the various braiding options discussed below.
1. Latest braided hairstyle – Box braids
The name box braid comes from the plaiting style which involves sectioning the hair into square or triangle-like shapes.

Before braiding, prepare your hair by shampooing, deep-conditioning, and detangling. When choosing a stylist, go for one who does not pull your hair but still creates tight braids. You goal is to look good without damaging the roots or sides of your hair. Even after braiding, moisturize your hair and wash when necessary. Also, remember to wear a silk bonnet when sleeping as it helps maintain the hair and prevents frizz
Latest braids weave hairstyles
Do you love braids but cannot stand sitting down for long hours to get your hair done? Then crochet braids are the best alternative for you because the technique used to plait them is similar to weaving, and is very fast. Crochet braiding is a scalp friendly and protective styling technique. The other factor that makes the style lovable is that you can use hair extensions of various shades, textures, and length. So, if you want the regular braid, there is something for you. For lovers of voluminous and wild hair, the options are endless. You can also achieve a silky and wavy look with the crochet braids. Depending on the type of extension you use you can even set your hair.
So, what makes crochet braiding different from the regular weaves? Well, with this hairstyle, your more protective style exerts less tension on the scalp compared to weaving. While weaving involves sewing in the extension, crochet braiding utilizes a crotchet needle and a twist-and-knot method to secure the ends. The simplest braiding pattern involves plaiting your hair to the back. You can also have more cornrows in the front by joining two rows halfway. When you want a fringe, a beehive pattern is used instead. For those who want multiple styling options, then the vixen pattern is used.
Apart from being budget friendly, crochet braids can last more than a month. However, the longevity of the hairstyle depends on the quality of the hair extensions used, the braiding pattern, and how you maintain it. Nonetheless, you should not stay with style for long as you risk experiencing breakages due to straining your hair.
Now that you have a background on crochet braids, here are some of the trending styling options.
