Box braids come in all shapes and styles. These braids can be long and thin or thick and chunky. Box braiding is done with three-stranded plates and creates a box or triangle shape on your scalp. They are defined and loose, but they are not tight to the scalp like cornrows. Because the tension is at the root of your hair, you won’t have fly-aways or frizz with box braids. Box braids can be short or long depending on your hair, and they are easy to make longer with extensions.
If you’re excited about your Carmel Box Braiding appointment, there are a few things you should consider before deciding on a style.
Get Your Hair Ready
Before your Carmel Box Braiding appointment, you’ll want to make sure your hair is squeaky clean and easy to comb through. Wash your hair the night before your appointment. Be sure to condition your hair thoroughly with natural oils in order to avoid tangles during the braiding process. It is also important to wash your scalp. When your braids are done, the surface of your scalp will be easily seen, so it’s important to scrub your scalp well to get rid of all the buildup. Come to the salon with dry, clean hair.
Add Bling To Your Braids
At Ramas, we love when braids show off rainbows of color. We can dye your hair or add colorful extensions to brighten up your do. Braids are great for transitioning hair from one color to another or showing off multiple colors. Blonde or light-colored braids add more definition. And because you don’t have to wash your hair as much when it’s in braids, the color will stay vibrant until your braids come out. We also love to add jewels, charms, thread, cuffs, and other accessories to add some bling to your new look.
Extensions for Long Braids
If you want long braids but have short natural hair, you are going to need extensions. Our friendly staff can recommend hair extensions when you call to make your Carmel Box Braiding appointment, but it is definitely worth it to do some more research on your own. Human hair usually looks the best, but it can be the most expensive. Braiding hair packs made of synthetic fibers are great because they are more affordable and can withstand extreme heat for sealed ends.
Wearing Your Braids Up or Down
Once you have a full head of braids, it’s up to you how to wear them. Keep them sporty in a ponytail or twist them up in an elegant bun for a night on the town. Braiding braids in one big braid is a great way to keep them neat or wear the ends loose for a bohemian vibe. When you have box braids, your styling possibilities are endless!
Box Braids can be thin or thick depending on your preference. The tighter and smaller your braids, the longer your appointment will be. For the health of your hair, it is best not to have box braids thinner than two fingers wide. Chunky box braids have been more popular lately, and braiding in bigger sections will protect your hair more and cause less stress on your scalp. If you ever feel discomfort during the braiding process, let your stylist know. Braids shouldn’t hurt, and if they are, you want to address the problem with your stylist before they finish braiding your entire head.
Make Your Braids Last
Braids can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months long with proper care and maintenance. It is important to keep scrubbing your scalp to prevent buildup. You should also clean your braids by spraying them with moisturizing oil. Our best advice that we give all our clients is to sleep in a silk nightcap to keep your braids long and strong.
