When you braid your hair, the best thing you can do for your edges is to cornrow or flat twist them.
I first went natural because my hair was looking raggedy and getting thinner and the edges were the bits that needed the most TLC.
Two years later, I am less psycho about not exposing my ends and I am not so dogmatic about the dos and donts of my hair but three things have remained constant:
- I braid my hair a lot less often. I used to always be in braids before going natural.
- I don't do micros because they break hair like woow, especially the edges
- I usually corn row the edges so that they have no weight on them at all.
These are the best tips I can give.
