The Products I Used When I Had Braids

products for box braids

I got braids! I took my weave out a few weeks ago which makes my imagination run wild with hairstyle ideas and since I was also going to Iceland, I decided to get braids. I haven’t had box braids since the 90s and thankfully my regular hairstylist (and friend) Gabrielle Corney was able to hook me up. She doesn’t offer braids so I had to BEG mad hard for her to agree to it. She told me she used to work in an African hair braiding shop way back when she first got started in hair. Gabi suggested I get bigger Patra-like braids. I LOOOOVED them—there were fewer braids which made braid time go super fast and they didn’t feel heavy. Only downside was that since there were fewer braids, it was more obvious when my hair started to grow out some and get fuzzy. Also didn’t help that I slept a little wildly :/
