I big chopped and want to know is it necessary for a protective style like braids?
I feel it's easier to maintain or care for my hair at this stage after the big chop. Do I really need a protective style to enhance growth? I often experience my hair being dry especially when I put it in braids. I prefer plaits as a protective style as I can easily spray it with water& leave-in conditioner & add some oil. Do I really need braids at this stage?
you can do any protective style that works for you. Not just braids. And its not necessary to wear protective styles. It's just a way to give you and your hair a break from styling.
