The 10 Best Braided Hairstyles for Natural Hair | Spring + Summer 2020

Braids are one of the most popular ways to style natural curly and afro textured hair! Braids have always been popular for natural hair because there are tons of unique braided hairstyles to choose from. Braids are even a protective hairstyle! This means when done properly, it can help people grow out their natural hair and reduce breakage.
One of the best things about braids is that you can try out tons of different hair colors without damaging your natural hair! You can get pre-dyed braiding hair in nearly every color from fire red to pastel blue. Weather you love box braids, fulani braids, feed in braids, cornrows, braided buns, you name it, there is a braided hairstyle just for you out there!
