4 Reasons to get Box Braids this Summer




Janet Jackson Box Braids

Box Braids are a totally gorgeous hairstyle rocked by celebrities include Beyoncé, Chanel Iman, Tyra Banks, and who can forget Janet Jackson in the movie Poetic Justice? Box braids are a perfect, fun summer hairstyle and here are four reasons why you should get them ASAP! 

1. Sleep in longer

With your hair already styled, you can catch some extra Z's in the mornings. Box braids can last up to six weeks with proper care.  Ensure they stay looking fresh by wrapping your hair at night with a silk scarf or by wearing a bonnet. 

2. Protective Styling 

The harsh winter weather can reek havoc on your hair, so now as the weather warms up it's the perfect time to give your hair a break from seasonal changes with box braids.  

3. You'll see hair growth

While box braids don't necessarily make your hair grow faster, because you aren't styling your hair daily you will find that your hair breaks less. And when you take your hair down after six weeks of wearing them you will definitely see the difference in your hair length. 

4. They are versatile

Box braids don't have to be worn straight down, you can put then in a bun, space buns, a top knot or something entirely different. It's completely up to you! You can even even have a braided bob if you wanted to!
