While we all love braids, there are a few frequently asked questions that we’ve tried to address below:

Box braids require little effort to maintain and last for a very long time if taken care of. Additionally, box braids protect your hair from the cold temperature. Despite the braid’s enticing pros, there are specific cons that you should be aware of.

The braids could be significantly heavy and maybe a bit painful the first few days after plaiting them. But as your hair begins to grow in, the braids loosen up, reducing the tension on your scalp.

Braids are easy to manipulate and can be plaited in different styles that are suitable for every occasion and activity. Examples of braiding styles include:

  • Twist braids
  • Cornrow braids
  • Braided bun
  • Braided ponytail
  • Crochet braids

Whatever style you’d like to try, braids always come out neat and are easy to style.

If your braiding is not done properly, it can cut your hair – mostly the hairline.

With various options to choose from in hair braiding Dallas, you can find a protective braiding style that promotes maximum hair growth. It’s a combination of the style and how you take care of it, i.e., hair foods and the like.

Turning your braids into dreads is possible, but will take a lot of time and is not recommended as it depends on the hair texture. Additionally, you will have lots of fuzz and loose hair that will give it an unappealing appearance.

Leave your braids in for at most eight weeks for the sake of your hair’s health. For your scalp to breathe, avoid removing braids a week after plaiting them.

Washing your braids after every two weeks is ideal. You can also openly swim with your braids. However, ensure that you completely dry them afterward.

Keep in mind that constantly dumping your braids in water may cause the braids to loosen sooner than you anticipate.

The duration in which your braids last depend on how well you were plaited and how you maintain it. But on average, braids can last for 8 weeks.

Any hair type, texture, color and length can be braided. It all depends on personal preference.

Visit a hair braiding salon to assist you when taking out your braids. However, if you decide to do it yourself, start by cutting the extensions, then unbraid from the bottom working your way up. Be careful not to cut your hair.

Yes, it would be best if you used shampoo and conditioning to wash your hair before braiding. You can also have the salonist do this for you.

If your braids often come in contact with water, then always ensure to dry it completely. Either way, make a point of applying hair oil to your scalp to prevent too much dryness causing dandruff and itching.
