Over the last three years of being natural, I have become a lover of cornrows as my go-to protective style for a number of reasons. 1. There are a variety of cornrows designs to choose from and therefore you can’t get bored of redoing them. 2. They are hairline friendly. Unlike braids and twists, there is less risk of losing your hairline when you have cornrows done. However, too much of it is again risky.
