The Goddess Braid, in its most basic form, is similar in appearance to oversized cornrows. Like cornrows, they are braided close to the scalp with either natural hair or with the use of extensions. They also lie on top of the scalp and tend to be styled in a crown braid with a part in the middle leading towards the back of the head. The Goddess Braid is particularly popular among women coming out of relaxed hair. It is somewhat of an easy style that also has a unique chic appearance to it that sets it apart from the rest. It allows women to look fashionable while doing their day-to-day activities.
The Goddess Braid is quite versatile and the designs can vary. A great deal of artistry can go into to creating beautiful Goddess hairstyles. Hair can be parted into exquisite shapes and designs emoting an entirely unique dimension to this beautiful style. We have seen some Goddess Braids worn up in a crown braid updo. We have also seen some variations of the Goddess Braid in a striking mohawk, which looks amazing. Another option is to style the Goddess Braid in a low braided bun or a half-upstyle with a headband braid. With the Goddess braid, the options are many and wonderful.
Goddess Braids require a degree of maintenance. This particular style demands that the hair be kept hydrated and moist. We recommend that a quality moisturizer be used, such as a leave-in conditioner. Black castor oil is a good choice to use as it can effectively moisturize the air without weighing it down.
