Box Braids hairstyles are a great way to preserve your hair for the summer!

Putting your hair in braids can give it two or three months of rest from chemical or heat damage thus reducing breakage. If you are transitioning from relaxed hair, it could be best to allow for the new growth. Have the braids removed after a few months, trim your ends, and then re-braid the hair again. Some women who have kinky, curly hair have noticed that the braids will keep their hair stretched out and the reduced hair shrinkage can actually help the hair follicles.
