Braiding is more than just a hairstyle.

School was the time when we religiously braided our long hair. Besides, there were times when we used to experiment with our hair style and I used to think how cool it would be if every hairstyle was linked to symbolize the status, religious ceremony or even the marital status of a person as it was done in Native America. 

Just imagine, how it would be if a French braid with feathers is related to war, a Swiss braid to religious ceremonies and African knots related to wealth in the century that we live in? Braiding is more than just a hairstyle.
Did you know braiding also helps increase our creativity and math skills as some braiding styles like African braiding reveals a variety of complex geometrical designs? 

Jet black, oiled long hair, braided with ribbons has become a thing of past not because we do not like braiding, but considering the condition our hair is in; weak, thin and most important with split ends it really looks bad.
"Mom not like this, I want you to braid my hair taking five partitions not three "I used to shout before going to school. But when she wanted to braid my hair a few years later when I had joined college, things were different. "Mom please don't braid my hair, no one braids in college"

Beautiful women have always been associated with long, silky, strong hair. Hair is definitely a "look-again" factor. A pretty face with a very bad hair is a big turn off.
Let's see a short story here. 

 “Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair”, The phone started ringing and Nita came running and picked up the call.
Anu: “Hey funny ring tone. Isn’t it the poem by William Morris that we learnt in our second class? 
Nita: "Yeah, I just love the line. I always think about her hair; Long, strong and beautiful with no split ends. 
How I wish I had such a beautiful hair."

Anu: Hey don’t worry, I am sure you will find a magic product that works really well on your hair. 
Nita: I can only hope for it
  At home when Nita was going through a magazine she happened to see an advertisement.
“Dove brings you the new Dove Split Ends Rescue System that leaves your hair with 4 X lesser split-ends, so you can make beautiful braids with beautiful ends once again. Nita thought  “another new ad which will never show any effect in my hair” . 
Next day in college.
Anu: hey Nita did you try the new Dove Split Ends Rescue System shampoo and the conditioner? I must say it is amazing.
It has been specially formulated to help bring split-ends together. It has fiber active that work on the deepest level of your hair, to give you up to 4x lesser split-ends Now take this
Anu handed the bottles of Dove  Split Ends Rescue System shampoo and conditioner and forced Nita to try it.
After few months,
There was visible difference in the hair texture of Nita and it was much smoother with less split ends.It definitely was a magic product for Nita!. 

Dove  Split Ends Rescue System-->Less split ends -->less haircuts = hair like Rapunzel (Secret formula)
.
 Different types of braids, and different hairstyles, can done only when the hair is healthy. So maintenance of hair is very important, and for split ends this WORKS!!!    

This is my first attempt  to write for the Beautiful Ends to your Beautiful Braids Contest! on Indiblogger Sponsored by Dove Split Ends Rescue System :)
