A braided style, like cornrows, helps protect the hair from moisture loss and breakage." It's why cornrows, and many other braided looks, are classified as "protective" styles.

In Africa, braids used to be a way to show people who you were, what town you were from and many more. They signified your tribe, your marital status, your wealth, religion, and more.
