BOX BRAIDS

BOX BRAIDS FOR DAYS

EVER SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL, I’VE ALWAYS LOVED AND WANTED TO TRY THE BOX BRAIDS. I’VE HEARD THEY HURT LIKE HELL BUT I STILL WANTED TO DO THEM.

VISITING SENEGAL WAS THE OCCASION TO MAKE THAT LITTLE DREAM COME TRUE. I WENT TO A SALON AND IT TOOK THEM A LITTLE OVER 5 HOURS AND 3 LADIES WORKING ON MY HAIR ! (IT REALLY TAKES A VILLAGE HAHA !!)

SO WHEN IT COMES TO THE FINAL LOOK, I LOVE IT! THEY LOOK EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL, BUT THEY ARE A BIT HEAVY AND QUITE DIFFICULT TO STYLE FOR SOMEONE THAT NEVER HAD THEM. I HAD TO LOOK UP VIDEOS ON YT TO GET INSPIRED.

AND WHEN IT COMES TO WASHING THE BOX BRAIDS, IT’S MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 😀 THEY GET VERY HEAVY WHEN WET, AND TAKE FOREVER TO DRY. BUT I STILL ENJOYED HAVING THEM.

YOU CAN KEEP THE BRAIDS FOR AS LONG AS YOU WANT IF YOOU DON’T MIND THE BABY HAIRS GROWTH AFTER. I ONLY KEPT MINE FOR A MONTH AND IT TOOK ME ALMOST 5 HOURS TO TAKE THEM OFF (I PREFERRED TO DO IT MYSELF THIS TIME). YOU’RE PROBABLY WONDERING IF THE BRAIDS RUINED MY HAIR, I’D SAY YES A LITTLE, BUT I DIDN’T MIND. I WAS PLANNING ON CUTTING MY HAIR SHORT ANYWAY. SO YOU MAY CONSIDER THAT IF YOU’RE THINKING OF GETTING THEM.
