6 Great Things I Love About Box Braids

 I recently got box braids after I told myself I would not for a long time but I didn't have much options. The last time I had box braids was before summer last year. In this post, I'm sharing some of the things I especially love about box braids and why I even prefer them to weaves sometimes. Just a little disclaimer before you proceed in this post, my nail polish is disgustingly chirped, so no one should judge me...

6 Great Things I Love About Box Braids

1. They are minimum maintenance - This is top on my list. With weaves, you have to brush it, use this or that and if it has curls then you have to maintain the curls and sometimes straighten and curl it and all those long processes but with braids, I can just get up in the morning, flip them left and right and head out especially when I'm rushing to class and they still look good. Imagine going out without untangling or brushing your weave.


2. They allow my scalp to breathe - Weaves cover up your entire scalp and there's no breathing space. Before you can even get a finger to your scalp to even soothe an itch, you have to go through layers of hair and thread and all that. But with braids, your can actually touch your scalp anytime you feel like and air can pass through it.

3. Braids are much cheaper - the braiding hair for box braids are much more cheaper than the cost of weaves especially human and virgin hair weaves. The only thing is those weaves are reusable but if you haven't got so much money at that moment and you want to make your hair,box braids gat you!

4. Versatile Styling - Major reason why I don't like weaves (except maybe the lace front ones but I
have never had lace front on before) is because they aren't a lot of ways you can style them. But for braids, you can style and pack them in so many different ways and have a different look every single day which is bomb.

5. They last longer - even with the minimum maintenance, they still last longer than wearing a weave to me. Although, it depends on how you maintain both. Different strokes for different folks.

6. Box braids are classic - like they never go out of style. They are always in, always trending, always fit for occasion.
