Protective style: Box Braids *update*  It’s been two weeks and two days since I’ve had these babies in. I love them! Just one thing: I went swimming about a week ago and that resulted in my natural hair texture showing through my braids. It looks like frizz along the braids. But with a water and oil spritzer, finger combing with oil/moisturizer and Eco styler gel then wrapping my hair with a silk/satin scarf until I’m done getting dressed I’ve been able to calm the frizz down (at least until I return home from an outting). So I wouldn’t really consider that a huge issue. It probably would be best to do styles using the marley braiding hair to eliminate the appearance of frizz though. I wanna keep these in for another week, possibly two. I’m petrified of them wearing away my edges so I’m aiming for just a week (I don’t wanna push it).
Also this is an elegant updo you can try with your box braids if you’re going on a day outting, dinner date, or in my case…church (lol).
So thats all for now. Feel free to ask me questions if you have any. Protective style: Box Braids *update*  It’s been two weeks and two days since I’ve had these babies in. I love them!
