Braids (also called plaits) are complex hairstyles that are formed by braiding three or more strands of hair. Braiding has been used to style and decorate human and animal hair for thousands of years in various cultures around the world.
The simplest and most common version is a flat, compact, three-stranded structure. More complex patterns can be built from an arbitrary number of strands to create a broader structure (such as fishtail braids, five-stranded braids, rope braids, French braids, and waterfall braids).
These structures are usually long and narrow with each strand of components that are functionally equivalent in zig-zag going forward through other overlapping masses. Structurally, braid hair can be compared to the weaving process, which usually involves two groups of strands that are separated perpendicular (warp and weft).
Countries that often braid hair for women are countries in the African region such as Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, and many more.
