One of the best things about being at home right now is that you can spend so much time experimenting with your hair, whether that means nursing it with deep treatments and masks regularly or switching between protective styles. If you’re doing the latter, you probably already know that there are dozens of options at your fingertips, from passion twists to knotless box braids to the wildly underrated Ghana braids.
Ghana braids (also called Banana cornrows) are extensions that touch the scalp. They usually begin like regular cornrow braids, with synthetic hair slowly incorporated to create a larger plait near the nape. The best thing about them, though, is that there’s not just one way to wear them. Read ahead to check out a few of our favorite takes on Ghana braids.
