When it comes to my hair, I literally switch up constantly because I easily get bored of the same look and the other reason is simply that I can. I feel my twenties are the years I can explore with different looks.
Box braids are the quintessential hairstyle for women who need versatility. Famous people like Solange and Keke Palmer have been rocking the look too. It’s clear to see that braids are popular in the black community.
Personally, I love the fact that braids are low maintenance. I don’t have to worry about curling or straightening my hair when I have braids in, I can wear them up or down depending on the look I am going for. I also love bold looks as seen in my choice of curly big hair and boxy braids.
Box braids are a good protective Hairstyle too. I am not a naturalist but I make sure my relaxed hair is healthy so I like to take a break from chemicals and heat. Let your hair breathe mama. A little tip I will share with you is: if you are going to go for this hairstyle trim your ends just before you get the braids done. I was amazed at the growth of my hair a couple of months after I took my previous braids out. Amazing if you ask me!
So if you are not yet convinced that this is the IT LOOK, hope these pictures win you over. I recently got them done so I prefer to wear them down but I will be sharing more looks on the blog. I used 6 packs of expression kenakoline hair to achieve this look.
