Cornrows or braids, also known as cornrows in the Caribbean, are a primordial traditional African American style of hair mentoring, in which the locks are braided very close to the scalp, using an underhand, upward motion to produce a continuous, upraised row. Cornrows are often shaped in modest, straight lines, as the name implies, but they can also be formed in complicated geometric or curvilinear designs. When the cornrows are done only in a side of the head that’s called the side cornrows. Depending on the region of the world, cornrows are worn by men or women, or both, and are sometimes adorned with beads or cowry shells. Often favored for their easy maintenance, rows can be left in for weeks at a time if maintained through the careful washing of the hair and regular oiling of the scalp. Braids pulled too tight or worn for considerable lengths of time can cause a type of hair loss known as traction alopecia.
