Why Wear Braids Or Twists? Braids and twists can be worn for many reasons: to give your hair a rest from daily wear and tear, as a protective hair style or simply because you enjoy the beauty of the hairstyle. You’ll find lots of style ideas right here in the braiding gallery! You Don’t Need To Care For Braided Hair! This statement is wrong. Although your hair is braided or twisted, there is still some care you must provide, such as washing and conditioning, which are always required to keep it healthy and strong. How Should I Care For My Cornrowed Hair? I strongly recommend washing your braids with a mild shampoo while wearing a stocking cap to preserve your style!
