It’s no secret that braided hairstyles are the number one protective style all year round. However, in the high summer temperatures, your hair is prone to more frizz.
Plus your scalp needs to breathe, which is why these braid styles are your bestie. Keeping your braids and cornrows lightweight, colourful and accessorised gives them the desired #summervibes for the gram.
Remember to have fun with your looks and tell your stylist not to pull on those edges as it may cause hair loss.
