I’ve got myself some new box braids! After one month of letting my hair out, it was time to let it all back in, so I installed new braid extensions. If you’ve been following my hair growth series, I explained in part 4 how I see my hair as nothing more than just an accessory that complements my overall look. I like to play and experiment with my hair and try out different styles just like I do with my clothes. Since I’m on a hair growth journey, I’ve noticed that the quickest and safest way for me to grow my hair is to have it braided with extensions while letting my own natural hair rest in the process. Braiding my hair with extensions is not only a great protective style, but it also stretches my natural hair. And stretching helps me create and retain length.
This April will be one year since I started braiding my hair with extensions(obviously with breaks in between). I usually leave my box braids in for 6-10 weeks and every 3 weeks I re-braid some parts, so they still look fresh.
Some more looks….
Thank you for stopping by…Until the next part of my Hair Growth Series!! xo, Jey.
