So...I put in box braids a few weeks ago and I feel inspired to put together a little pro and cons of wearing this hairstyle.
Cheap hairdo...especially if you do it yourself like Mini and I did
It's a get up and go style...
No evening prep or morning prep
Versatile...pin it up, wear it down, side ponytail, high ponytail...endless.
Makes going to the gym...super easy.
Protects your natural hair from damage caused by curling irons, blow dryers and daily combing.
The long length of the braids make sleeping on your braids difficult.
They are constantly getting caught under your body while sleeping.
They are heavy.
They are a chore to take out...UGH!
and I'm just about ready to see them go.
