When braiding your Box Braids/Single Braids extensions, make sure to take your time!

I know it's fun and even if you know what you are doing, you want to be careful with the way that you handle the hair on your head.

Be careful that when you braid your hair that it isn't too tight.

Your extensions should feel snug with only a slight pull, if you feel uncomfortable, have headaches or pain, that is your scalp letting you know that the tension is unbearable.

Braiding the hair too tight does help the style last for a little bit longer but it also encourages hair loss which no one wants!

You can reduce this greatly by braiding at a tightness that is comfortable for you.

So many times, I used to braid my hair too tight just to make it "last longer" and I would be hurting myself in the end.

Take your time and stick to what you know works for you and keep working and practicing as your do your Box Braids/Single Braids!

How To Take Down Your Own Single Box Braids Safely Tutorial Part 8

Now it's time to take down or unistall your Box Braids/Single Braids.

If you would rather sport your hairstyle for another couple of days or even weeks feel free but remember to take care of your hair.

When I wear any type of hair style, it is a MUST that I add moisture to my hair at least once a week.

I use my spray bottle concoction to add moisture to my hair.

Remember to release your braids out of a pinned style at least once a week to add some moisture to your hair.

If your hair requires less moisture, that's fine.

Do to your hair what your hair needs because if you let conditions worsen, your hair ends up paying for it.

When taking down your Box Braids/Single Braids all you have to do is unravel them from the bottom and work your way up.

Sometimes I like to cut of the very bottom of the braids because the curled ends can become extremely interlocked which makes it hard to take them down.

If you are sure or unsure as to whether or not where your hair ends along the braids, take them down with your hands until you are comfortable with cutting the ends to speed up the process.

Its really easy and simple and once you get the technique down, you will be addicted to the ease of this style!
