Care and Maintenance of Male Box Braids
While male box braids can last up to 6 weeks, they will start to get fuzzy at the roots as hair grows out as well as fly-aways in the braids.
Here’s how to take care of your braids:
- Moisturize your hair: On wash days you can opt for hot oil treatment and slowly massage the oil of your choice onto your scalp.
It only takes a couple of minutes to moisturize your hair, so during the week, braid sprays can be used to keep your hair moisturized.
- Wash braids twice a week at least. This will cleanse your scalp, and get rid of any extra weight from products and dust on your strands.
- Protect hair while you sleep by wearing a silk do-rag or using a silk pillowcase.
- Take your braids out after 8 weeks max.
These tips are meant to help your braids stay at their best throughout the eight weeks, but after that, it’s best to take them down to give your hair a break from the added weight
