Is Plaiting Hair Really Protective?
The title question says it all.
Are cornrows or braids really protective?
My personal experience has taught me not. When my hair is out flying freely I find that my hair stays moisturised and pliable for longer periods of time.
The same cannot be said when my hair is cornrowed or in twists. My hair loses moisture too easily when separated like that and my ends get really really dry.
