The Importance of Hiding Your Natural Hair When Braiding

If you've ever had your hair braided, then you know that the most important thing to do is to hide or tuck away your natural hair into the synthetic hair. This ensures protection of your natural hair and the longevity of the braids. Trust me, if you don't do this correctly, you will end up with a fuzzy mess that looks like it needs to be taken out immediately. Here's a quick lesson on why hiding your natural hair is so important.




The Science Behind Hiding Your Natural Hair


When you get your hair braided, your stylist is actually creating a barrier between your natural hair and the outside world. This barrier helps to protect your natural hair from dirt, pollution, and other damaging elements. Additionally, hiding your natural hair prevents it from getting tangled up with the synthetic hair, which can lead to breakage.


So how do you ensure that your natural hair is properly hidden?


First, make sure that your stylist starts each braid by incorporating a small amount of your natural hair into the synthetic hair. Additionally, be sure to ask your stylist to pay special attention to the top of your head, as this is typically where natural hair tends to peek through. Once your braids are complete, you can use a light holding spray or serum to help keep everything in place.



Hiding your natural hair when getting braids is crucial if you want them to look neat and last long. By following these simple tips, you'll ensure that your braids not only look great but also protect your natural hair from damage.
