Upkeep: Tips for Rocking Box Braids
DO OIL YOUR SCALP FREQUENTLY
Because your scalp will be exposed to the winter weather, it’s important to keep it lubricated. Ward off dryness and flakes with a hot oil massage every other day. I recommend pouring warm extra virgin olive oil & a couple drops of tea tree oil into a spray bottle– it’s the easiest way to oil your whole scalp and it feels. Awesome.
DO SWITCH IT UP
There are a million and one styles you can do with box braids– don’t be afraid to try them out! Google pictures of your favorite braided beauties & go wild. As an added bonus, changing up your hair will also lessen the stress from the weight of the extensions being styled the exact same way for weeks on end.
