1. Avoid too much styling
When it comes to styling,allow you to be as versatile you want to: from updos, crowns, ponytails, pigtails, to mention a few. However, this does not mean that you should style every other day. Too much styling puts pressure on roots and edges, which can lead to thinning or even breakage.
2. Don’t leave your braids in for too long
While box braids are great protective styles, they must not be left in for too long, and by this, I mean, no longer than 5 – 6 weeks.
3. Wash your braids
Many people don’t like the thought of having to wash their box braids or they probably don’t know that they can actually wash it. However, this is a necessary step if you are wearing box braids or any protective style of some sort. As you go about your daily business, your braids gather dust, sweat, and even product build-ups.
4. Spritz and oil your scalp
It can be easy to forget about your scalp when you are rocking box braids. This can lead to having a dry and itchy scalp. So, what do you do? Get your spray bottle and spritz water on your scalp. Next, lock in the moisture with any natural oil of your choice.
5. Sleep with your satin or silk scarf
One of the ways to keep your braids free from frizz and protect your natural hair as well is by wrapping a satin/silk scarf on your braids before bed. This will keep your hair from losing moisture and keep it from unraveling easily.
6. Trim, but don’t trim
Tufts of your natural hair sticking out from your box braids can make it look frizzy and not last long. While trimming out such hair tufts may look like the perfect solution, I recommend that you don’t trim them more than once. Why? Remember, you’re trying to protect your hair with the braids and not lose them.
7. Don’t forget your edges
When wearing box braids, the closest attention most people give their hair edges is styling with a hair gel and baby brush. Our edges are fragile and lack of proper care can make them fall off. This shouldn’t be you. With your spray bottle, give your hair edges some spritz and lock in that moisture with lightweight oils.
