Your first step when choosing the right braid is to look at pictures of braided hairstyles. This will help you decided which style you want to have done. There are many types of braids for African hair, and choosing the right one can sometimes be difficult. You want to make sure you choose the right one because most of the braided styles stay in for quite some time. This article will briefly explain the different types of braids so that you will have a better idea what you might be looking for.
Cornrow braids are typically one and a half inches wide. They are braided in a way that makes them lie flat against the head, and are braided from the forehead to the nape of the neck. Countless hairstyles incorporate cornrow braids including extensions and several formal hairstyles. The time it takes to complete cornrows depends on the design that you are having done. They are very easy to maintain, and a great hairstyle for someone who does not have much time to devote to their hair in the morning.
Zigzag braids are done in the same way as cornrows, but are braided in a zigzag pattern. You can choose a design or you can draw up your own. Many celebrities have created their own designs and named them after themselves.
Zigzag braids are more complex than standard cornrows, which is why it takes a little longer to complete this hairstyle.
Box braids are divided by small square boxes and can be done in any length or width. Synthetic hair can be added to give the hairstyle length, fullness, and thickness. This type of braid is not attached to the scalp so it can be manipulated into many hairstyles. They are very easy to maintain. The length of time it takes to complete this style depends on many different factors such as the length of your hair, if you are adding synthetic hair and the stylist that is doing the hairstyle.

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.
