The style involves 2 strands of hair being tied around each other until the ends creating a rope like appearance, one of the best twists for men due to its simplicity.

Essentially the style helps to retain moisture, reduce breakage, and promote overall hair health.


Today we get to see Gervonta in training camps and on fight nights in his trademark cornrows which are often styled in different ways.

We believe the reason for this hair change can be traced down to rappers with braids. Hip hop being the most influential genre means Hip Hop Hairstyles are mainstream.

By hip hop hairstyles I mean black hairstyles since that what it means, and we all know music culture influences sports.

The key takeaway is maintenance

Its all well and good having braids but as you already know, all good things come with responsibility.

Here’s a simple guide to follow:

Oil your scalp: Regularly apply oil to your scalp to keep it moisturized and nourished. This helps prevent dryness, itchiness, and flakiness.

Duration: It is recommended to keep your braids in for a maximum of 6 weeks. Leaving them in for too long can lead to hair breakage, thinning, and damage to your natural hair.

Nightime and Physical Activity Protection:. During physical activities such as boxing wearing a protective style like a braid cover or a cap to prevent excessive pulling or damage, especially if you’re a boxer like Gervonta Davis.

Moisturize your hair: Even with braids, it’s important to moisturize your hair regularly. Use a lightweight leave-in conditioner or a moisturizing spray to hydrate your natural hair and the braided sections.

By following these simple steps, you can maintain the health and longevity of your braids while keeping your hair nourished and protected.
