Read­er Anna says;

I used to do braids and twists inter­change­ably but late­ly I’ve real­ized that my hair responds much bet­ter to braids than twists. For me, braids help my hair to lock in mois­ture bet­ter and stretch it more effec­tive­ly. Late­ly I’ve actu­al­ly found twists to be detri­men­tal. For me, they lead to a lot of tan­gling and knot­ting and, because they are more loose than braids, I find that they trap more dirt and lint. I thought it would be inter­est­ing to know whether your read­ers prefer braids or twists, and why it works for their hair.

Great ques­tion! Ladies, when styling do you prefer braids or twists? Which works bet­ter for your tex­ture and why?
