This blog is titled I LOVE box braids but we will also post photos of corn rows, goddess braids, Senegalese twists, and kinky twists. I created this blog because I love tumblr blogs and I wanted to submit photos of me to one that showcases braids, so I searched for one and there were no black girls. Just girls who do one cute braid with their naturally straight hair going to the side or something. If you've seen the pictures I've posted of myself you may have noticed that I have my hair braided. Hair is something that is important to me and I've been getting my hair braided my whole life. My mother has braided my hair up until I was 13 then I started getting my hair done professionally with extensions. I've had different styles of corn rows, box braids, and twists all throughout high school. I love getting box braids. They last long, they're versatile and they look nice. The longest I suggest wearing box braids is 4 months, and you should wash your hair after (at most) 2 months. If you have long braids, like in the photo below, washing your hair may not be that easy. The hair will absorb the water and it could take long to dry, so there are alternatives. One being dry shampoo. Dry shampoo is a form of shampoo that you use the same way as regular shampoo just without water. Along with photos I will also post tips to taking care of your hair on "I LOVE Box Braids!". Here are some examples of the hairstyles I will post about.
