Are you looking for a new hair style for your medium or long length natural hair? Wearing box braids can give you the flexibility to leave your hair in a protective style for at least four weeks.
Box braids can be curled, worn in a twist out, or braid out. Your hair can be rinsed, without becoming too frizzy after exercise and during your weekly hair conditioning.
Box braids are a great protective style. Wearing this hair style can help you to retain hair growth.
Here are some tips to help you box braid natural hair.
Wash and deep condition your hair. Then starting from the back of your head section off sections of hair. You can decide how big or small to make your box braids. This all depends on how much time you have to create this hair style. If you are unsure how the outcome will look find a picture of braided hair styles you would like to try.
Use the back of a rat tail comb to make smaller diagonal parts to begin plaiting your natural hair without extensions.
Use shea butter, or your favorite hair oils on the ends of your hair. If your hair is dry use a spray bottle of leave in conditioner or water.
Separate the ends starting at the bottom with your fingers. Rushing through this part, can cause you to tangle the ends of your hair. Run the oil or your favorite hair butter through your hands and on this section of hair.
Separate the hair into three sections and begin to plait/braid.
Oil the ends of your hair at least once a day.
