I've had my bob braids for about four weeks now and I'm thinking of doing another one after taking it down. Yep! That's how much I enjoy the style. This week I'm gonna be sharing five reasons why I'm gonna be re-installing and why you should I too.
1. It's super convenient.
The other day, I was talking to a friend of mine who also has bob braids on about the convenience of the style and she agreed with me. I haven't had to wake up thinking of how to style my hair - which can be a hassle sometimes. I just moisturize and go. I don't have to think about putting anything in place because it's in a default style. The only thing I really do to take the braids off my face is to hold them back with bobby pins. This is enough reason for me to re-do them.
2. It's cheaper to install
If you're a cheapskate like me, this might become your go-to style. It's way cheaper as you might just have to use one or two packs of extensions. If you're lucky, you might get away with just one pack. With this style, I know that even when I'm broke, i could still look decent.
3. It's easier to maintain
I'm one of those people that can't do without washing braids and extensions in general. So, I didn't hesitate to wash my bob braids after the first two weeks. Just as I had imagined, it was easier to wash. I could focus squarely on my scalp and air dry conveniently. Fortunately, it took just a couple of hours - half the time it takes for regular box braids to dry. Every other day, I moisturize with my hair spritz which comprises of aloe vera juice, leave-in, coconut oil, tea tree and lavender oil. I finish it up with massaging my edges with castor oil.
4. There are hardly any styling difficulties
As I said earlier, there are no styling challenges. If you don't like the plain look of the braids, you could easily switch things up by adding accessories.
I hope I've been able to convince you to try the style.
