These Celebs Prove Why Braids Are Perfect Third Trimester/New Mom HairDo

I’ve long believed that braided hairstyles are the best style to wear for your last trimester of pregnancy leading up to labor and delivery and shortly thereafter.

Why? The style requires very little maintenance after installed and can be kept in for a longer while. Once a silk head wrap is worn at night, the style remains neat without having to be loosened, washed and re-braided daily.

That’s great when you’re too busy nesting, adjusting to the aches and pains of preparing for birth and thereafter when your time is consumed with caring for your newborn.

Several of the celeb women we follow who are currently pregnant have been wearing braided protective style of late: Tia Mowry and Toya Wright are going with cornrows and Eva Marcille is rocking faux locs.

Its been a while but the locs are coming back!!! Gotta love protective styles??
