I'm a braid girl myself. Side braids work wonders. I use them on lazy days too, even when my hair would probably be fine. Or on days I would probably need to co-wash if I wanted to do anything decent, but don't have time to. Or just because My morning job is working with kids anyway, and the babies will play with my hair when it's down, so I don't wear my hair down often during the week. Braids are definitely my go-to
