How to Take Care of Your Box Braids


Box braids can be especially cool. For sure, you want to keep the form as long as possible. It makes sense, a more durable box braid requires fewer repeat sessions and more time for you to go around your day.

Whatever the style of your hair is—it needs some care. And if you happen to enjoy a particular style or braid, “particular” maintenance also exists.

Our hair experts are happy to share maintenance hacks to take care of your box braids.

Here are a few:

  • Keep your hair moisturized and healthy using hot oil treatment, scalp massage, or formulated braid sprays for lightweight moisture and extra shine.
  • Get rid of product buildup by scheduling “wash days”. You also need to schedule daily clean-up using sprays. Use gentle cleansers to clean the scalp.
  • Avoid over-styling—braids are already aesthetic, but they are still capable of more styles. Keep the hair tension normal and avoid over-styling.
