Cornrows, or canerows in the Caribbean, are a style of hair braiding, that originated in Africa, in which the hair is braided very close to the scalp, using an underhand, upward motion to make a continuous, raised row.
A braid is a complex structure or pattern formed by interlacing two or more strands of flexible material such as textile yarns, wire, or hair. The materials used have depended on the indigenous plants and animals available in the local area
The natural hair movement is a movement that encourages women and men of African descent to keep their natural afro-textured hair. It originated in the United States during the 1960s, with its most recent iteration occurring in the 2000s
