Box braids Cost

Box braids Cost

tumblr_minosnMocI1s5kwjzo1_500So I am currently protective-styling. I decided to revisit box braids.

(AKA, “Poetic Justice” Braids like the once Janet Jackson wore and still does.)

The first and last time I did box braids was back in September 2013, almost a year ago.

mcfarlingirl_nativelynatural_boxbraids_4monthspostbigchopThe results were beautiful for my first time, but short lived.

They itched so bad that I couldn’t keep them in longer than 2 weeks. No matter what I did, what oil I used or how I washed them, they still itched to the point of waking me out of my sleep! (Ain’t nobody got time for that!)

It wasn’t until after I took them down that I came across an article online that explained how synthetic hair is based with alkaline chemicals that cause allergic reactions once they come into contact with human skin.

The good news? These chemicals can be removed safely, naturally and without spending much money.

I spent about a dollor and some cents.

The solution?

Check out the video above to hear my step by step process along with tips on how I’m keeping my hair healthy underneath these box braids! Which includes daily moisturizing and sleeping with a satin scarf or bonnet.

What is the usual cost for box braids?

Its going to be mi first time getting box braids. I want to know the usual cost for box braids. If it helps, I live in NJ. Also how do you care for box braids.Tell mi everything tht i wuld need 2 knw.
Examples:
How long do you keep it in
How to take care of it etc.

This is my area of expertise, especially since I also reside in NJ!
If you go to a place East Orange, Newark called Mimi's I believe its around 65 dollars.
At the most, leave your braids in for 2 months or else when you do take them out, you'll lose a lot of hair. Basically wash your braids once a week so when you take them out your hair isn't tangled and dirty, and just oil your hair everyday! Hope I helped and feel free to email me if you have any other questions
