Why do black women braid their hair?

Hi just wanted to ask
why do lots of black women braid their hair? they put it in those locks that dont look natural. i noticed black women do this more than any other race so i was wondering why?

We have the only hair type that locks well. So, that may be why you see more Black women with locs than women of other races. Braids are a style that is part of our culture. In most parts of Africa, it gets very hot and humid. So, braiding the hair is a good way to keep it neat in the heat. Our hair is NOT wiry and untamed...lol! Braids are also done almost as an art form. It's a cultural thing. And, braided styles last for several days, allowing the hair to rest.
