Be honest, you miss your box braids.
You’re forgiven if you don’t but I’m sure most women can tell you they do, and for good reasons too.
Box braids are like that killer dress you pull out of your closet when you are all-out to get eyes rolling and mouths wide open at an event.
You can call it the wild card in the world of hairstyles if you like. One thing is for sure, box braids deliver awesomeness every time.
Here are the real reasons box braids are the out-of-the-box hairstyle:
1. With box braids you can conquer the world…
I’m not even going to second-guess you if you need proof of this, after all how true can that be?
Olivia, 18 does think it’s true and says that’s exactly how getting her hair braided makes her feel.
“I’m Olivia, am 18. This morning I decided to get my hair braided because I really miss my braids and whenever I have my hair braided It makes me feel like I can conquer the world, like I can do anything.”
Who wouldn’t like to feel that way after a new hairstyle? I bet you would.
2. Box braids are all-in-one
Go to any good natural hair salon and they’ll tell you box braids are the best choice if you’re looking for a hairstyle that keeps your hair and ends tucked in and shielded from factors like extreme weather conditions, while still promoting growth.
Now that’s hair protection and growth, low-maintenance, convenience, and cuteness, all in one!
Although they’ve been around for so long, there seem to be a box braids revival going on in the natural hair world.
But before you runoff to go get your box braids, here’s something you should bear in mind.
For box braids, hair-type matters
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If you want the thick, rope-like ones or the smaller braids; whatever your style is, be aware of your hair type.
If your hair is thin and fine, go for the smaller braids so you can get the volume you desire and not risk damage to your hair because of the weight from bigger ones.
On the other hand if your hair is thick, go for bigger braids so you don’t end up with trillion braids weighty and too thick to style.
One more thing though, learn to prepare your natural hair before going for protective braids.
