Latina Box Braids
If you are looking for a low-maintenance hairdo, box braids might be the one for you. However, your days of slouching and being used to the low-maintenance care of this hair are numbered.
One of the reasons people get box braids is their need to give their mane a break and allow their hair to retain length, according to a Mane Addicts article.
People are not advised to leave their box braids for too long as they will undo all of the protection and make your hair more prone to damage.
You'll know when it is time to remove when your roots start to separate from the braid as the new growth is hanging onto the braid, making it more twisting and tangling.
Build-up should also be one of the telltale signs that it is time to let go of your box braids.
