This style is cute, simple,and fast. I will be doing this style on myself, I still have 1 more month to go on my 6 months protective style challenge!
After washing out my Deep Conditioner I followed up with moisturizing my hair using the LCO method which is Leave in conditioner, Cream and Oil/Butter then oiled my scalp with my DIY (Do It Yourself) hair growth oil.
Once my hair has been Moisturized I added a few pumps of Mousse to set my hair back in Place
Lastly I grabbed my Satin scarf and tied my hair down to set everything until it dries
And thats it my Wash day with Box Braids is complete 🙂
The Purpose of Protective Styling is to give your Natural Hair a Break from Constant Styling, Daily Manipulation, and for most of us help with Length Retention.
But in order to maintain Healthy Natural Curly Hair when in a Protective Style, you must still take care of your Natural Hair in that Protective Style meaning sticking to your regimen, Keeping your scalp clean and keeping your hair moisturized. Even though your ends are tucked away the Synthetic Fibers of the Braiding hair will suck all the moisture out of your hair causing it to become dry and brittle. Once that happens when it’s time to take out your braids you will have more breakage which leads to NO LENGTH RETENTION.
