Ghana braids are a popular protection design for natural hair and curly hair, also widely known as cornrows, direct-backs or banana trimmings.
The braids of Ghana can trace roots back to Africa throughout. They have been an integral part of many ethnic, religious, social, and cultural traditions in centuries. In hieroglyphics and sculptures carved around 500 BC, the earliest depictions of Ghana braids appear.
Cornwraps, Ghana braiding, goddess braids, box braiding, and other styles of protection are now more popular than ever with women, and many diverse ethnic groups are used today to the hairstyle.
Braid Ghana is suited for all ages and works well with decorative features like wooden beads, flowers, metal rings, and more.
