The beauty of braids.
Braids are one of the most popular types of hairstyles today. The style has been around since ancient times, and it continues to evolve. In fact, there are many different styles of braids, such as cornrows, twists, and bantu knots. There are also several ways to braid hair. Some people prefer to use a comb to create the look, while others use their fingers. Regardless of which method you choose, the goal is always the same: to create beautiful, intricate designs.
- As far as the health benefits go, there are plenty of reasons why you should get involved in braiding hair. First, it prevents split ends. Split ends are caused by dryness and damage to the hair. By preventing split ends, you can avoid having to deal with those annoying little hairs that grow out of your scalp. Second, it strengthens weak strands. Weak strands are usually caused by stress, poor diet, or genetics. By strengthening weak strands, you can reduce the chances of getting thinning hair. Third, it adds volume. Volume is important because it gives your hair a fuller appearance. Fourth, it reduces frizziness. Frizzy hair is caused by humidity, heat, and lack of moisture. By reducing frizziness, you can avoid having your hair stick out everywhere.
The history of braids.
Let's break the fibers down.
Synthetic materials tend to hold up better than natural ones because they are less likely to break down over time. However, some synthetic materials can cause allergic reactions in some people. Natural materials are more prone to breaking down over time, so they need to be replaced more often.
Among many braiding hair brands, kenekalon fibers are used. A kenekalon fiber is not really a real fiber if you ask any cosmetic biologist or chemist. The word is thrown around to communicate the combination of a mixture of fibers coated in a preservative called alkaline. The definition of a synthetic fiber for braiding hair is....
- "Synthetic hair is a polymer. It's made from acrylic that is heated and strung into strands to make individual fibers. Typically, fibers of modacrylic, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, polyester, nylon are used for artificial hair. The synthesis of modacrylic fibers involved utilizing the properties of each polymer to graft out a suitable product. In this case, the intended product would be flame resistant, have high tensile strength, and appropriate refraction properties.

In other words, the fibers of braiding hair are the same exact fibers that are used to make our clothes. They are just made in a different form. At Unclouded Hair, we use an organic preservative on and for the hair. This preservative not only nourishes the fibers but serves as a barrier and/or coating for the fibers, so no fiber transmissions are transferred over to the scalp.
