Box Braids are a very 90s hairstyle, before weaves became this very high capital intensive activity with lace-fronts.
I cannot seem to hate box braids as they take me back to my teenage years and give me a piece of my childhood. My hair is thick however so no high ponies for thick hair in braids however. Beyonce has had mixed feedback on her box braids choice, and as I say about weaves… each to her own. Hair should not be an over emotional topic, lets enjoy the advantage us African women have to be able to have so much choice.
