If you are looking for a low maintenance style that is also gorgeous, then you want to look at the goddess braid. It is the kind of style that will make you feel like a goddess. You may think that these are just your standard cornrows, but you would be wrong. There is a difference between the cornrow braid and the goddess braid. These are the new and improved cornrow braid and they are so much better.
This should be your go to style if you are looking for something glamorous and wonderful. They are absolutely beautiful and the best part is they allow you to have a hairstyle that you don’t have to worry about for months. If you need to give your hair a break because it’s been damaged or over-treated, then getting goddess is a great way to allow your hair to breathe a little. It gives your hair a break from all the styling that causes damage to your hair.
If you take the time to scroll through social media sites, you will see just how popular the goddess braid actually is. Again, they do look familiar to the cornrow braid, but they are so much cooler. So how are the goddess braids different?
The difference between a goddess braid and a cornrow braid is that the goddess braid is a much thicker and larger braid. They aren’t so much flat against the scalp; they are larger, so they become more raised on the head. Many people will style the goddess braid in a crown design which is an elegant and glamorous style.
If you are looking for a simple style that is no nonsense, then you are going to love the goddess braid. You are sure to love the convenience of the hairstyle because once it’s done, you don’t have to worry about it again for months. That’s how awesome they are!
A lot of the styles require a lot of hair, so if you don’t already have long, thick hair, then you will have to consider getting extensions. Only then will you be able to try out these amazing goddess braids. You should know that if you normally have curly, frizzy or kinky hair, then you should add in a leave in conditioner to your hair before it is braided to avoid damage. Hair of that texture is always a little more fragile and you don’t want to do anything that’s going to cause further damage to your hair. The leave in conditioner will certainly help in that area.
If you want the braided look, you will have to consider going to a professional stylist. This isn’t the kind of style you can do yourself and we wouldn’t recommend you have a friend do it unless they are a professional. Braiding takes time and a professional will know how to do it quickly without a lot of damage.
