Best hair for Box braids
Rocking box braids this Summer or thinking about getting a set? I’ve had mine in for about 2 and a half months now and plan to keep them in for at least another seven weeks. In order to keep braids in for this long it requires some maintenance to avoid looking like a hot mess and having your hair knot up. Let me share with you how I’ve been maintaining my braids to keep them looking fresh while keeping my hair underneath healthy.
First of all you must periodically retouch your braids around the perimeter to keep them looking fresh and to keep your edges from breaking, especially for longer, thicker braids which are usually heavier. Every 2-3 weeks should be sufficient enough and remember not to braid too tight. Since I plan to keep my braids in longer than three months I decided to retouch my entire head in sections at the two month mark, it took me about 2 weeks doing small sections every few days. The picture above shows my new growth and how the braids looked when retouched. If I allowed them to grow out for four months without retouching they would be hanging off my head which can cause breakage. When retouching, ensure that your hair is well moisturized. You can use new hair which is easier or you can just take a loose each braid to redo (as I did) which takes much longer. You may find that your hair is a little tangled with product build up and/or dirt where the braid was originally knotted. Simply detangle the knot with a fine tooth comb starting from the base and working your way up until you can comb through the section of hair freely, then rebraid.
Speaking of moisture, it is very important that you keep your hair well moisturized as dry hair can lead to breakage. You don’t need to add a lot of products, a simple braid spray will do. My favorite is BB African Royale Braid & Extensions Sheen Spray. The first two ingredients are water and glycerin so it keeps your hair really moisturized and it contains Tea Tree Oil, Ginseng, Protein and a bunch of other stuff that is good for your hair & scalp. I usually apply it once or twice a day and I’m good.
