Braids are great for a hundred and one reasons, but just one fabulous reason is that they give you two styles. You could wear your virgin hair tight for one day, pulled out and loose for the next, and then un-braid the lot and rock the waves on the third day. On the fourth day, you could even get away with not-washing again if you get creative with your updo’s and a bit of dry shampoo!
Of course, everyone knows that healthy virgin hair is hair that isn’t washed every day, and why not give that beauty hack a try for yourself by incorporating these braided hairstyles for medium hair? Greasy roots aren’t a problem for anyone when you give them a quick squirt of dry shampoo and have braids on your team.
If, like us, you have a hard time getting your head and hands around these intricate virgin hair, start with the basics — a regular braid and then a French braid, for example. There are so many tutorials on Youtube, each showing you how to do weird, wonderful and varied braided looks. Give some of them a watch and you’ll find you’ll soon get the hang of those confusing braids in no time at all.
Braids give you a way to go without washing your virgin hair and, if we’re being honest about this, that’s one of the biggest reasons why we love them. This braided design will work much better on hair that isn’t freshly washed. The grease and natural ‘dirt’ on the hair will help it to stick together, meaning less need for pins and products.
