protective styles protect our peace, our kinks, and sometimes our edges too! they are not underrated. they are greatly appreciated. the luxury of not doing your hair is not one we take lightly.
the first braid many of us have learned to do was the cornrow, and this style of braiding has been around since 3000 B.C. from the lands of Africa. yes, the ancestors have been guiding your hands for a very long time.
cornrows have been also been worn as a status symbol for class, family, marriage status etc. in some places in Africa, this stands true to this day.
what do your cornrows say about you? or are you only wearing them under a wig or prepping for that fresh braid out? side eye if you’ve turned your back to the classic cornrow. either way, make sure to keep your kinks moisturized with the Too Soft Leave-in Conditioner!
