Once upon a time, mom wouldn't let you out of sight without tying your hair into a neat, stylish braid. We say, it's time to do it again. Not just because it looks fashionable, but also because braiding can be a blessing in disguise for your hair health.

1. It can prevent hair breakage
"Hair braiding is a good, protective practice that can protect your hair from any breakage as it strengthens the hair structurally. In fact, loosely tied braids can work with your body's natural process to accelerate hair growth," Shah explains.

2. It takes care of your hair even while you sleep
According to Shah, braiding your hair before bed can have better results because it reduces friction between the braided hair and the pillow cover.

3. It can nourish your hair
"Braiding helps lock in moisture in the hair, keeping it moisturized and nourished," Shah points out.

"You can also apply Brahmi Jaborandi hair oil before braiding for deeper hair nourishment," she adds.

4. It can prevent frizziness
You know how much frizzy, out-of-whack hair is enough to ruin your look and ruin your mood? Well, braiding can save you the horror.

5. It can keep split-ends away
Braiding your hair before stepping out protects it from sun damage and pollution.

But keep this in mind...
While braiding can be a great protective measure for your hair, Shah recommends not leaving your hair braided for more than 7-8 hours a day. Additionally, she warns against tying hair into tight braids as doing so can stress the hair follicle and lead to hair loss. Although braiding is good for the hair, avoid any tight braiding style as it stresses the hair roots. Making short braids can scratch the hair and damage the hair shaft.
