Hello Fashion dolls!,

Recently I decided to get my hair braided and it’s been awhile since I’ve gotten it done in box braids, but I definitely intended on getting them in the color that I picked out because I’ve used it before and fell in love.

It was a spur of the moment decision to get my hair done and with that being done, I forgot just how itchy your scalp can get afterwards and I’m struggling with it already.

So of course, I needed to learn how to refresh my braids and moisturize them when it was time to get rid of frizziness and itchy scalp. I remembered that like my natural hair my braids need to be cleaned routinely until it’s time to remove them and rock my curls again. Additionally, I did need to research a little bit as well and will be sharing with you what new information I learned this time around that I’m glad to have found.

Hair brand: Rasta Fri (prestretched) / Hair color: Sweet red

Of course it’s easier to just go get your braids touched up, but is theres an way to fix frizzy braids at home that I’m currently using and are helpful when wanting to extend the amount of time you can wear the braids.

  1. Wash your braids: Dilute your shampoo with water, because the thickness of the shampoo makes it a challenge to reach certain parts of the scalp. Put into a bottle with a pointy nozzle, because this helps you to get all the spots you need to clean. Additionally, before you get into the shower make sure to put the shampoo mixutre on yout parts and any new growth and gently rub it in.

  2. Hot water treatment: Boil water and dip a towel into it and lay it on the top of your head and along the whole braid to help the frizzy hairs lay down again; you also can add a few drops of oil into the water as well, which is beneficial to reducing frizz.

  3. Wrap your hair at night: Always use a silk or satin head wrap when going to bed at night and can even get a pillow case of the same material if your someone who forgets about putting it on.

  4. Maintain moisture: Oil is the best way to help with the itchy scalp and maintain the freshness of your braids. It’s best to use one either with a droper or nozzle to help get the oil right where it needs to be. Coconut oil and castor oil are some of the top used oils when maintaining your box braids.


  1. Salon Pro: This is what Im using / 2. African Pride: I want to try this

Tomorrow is wash day for me and I will be going to the beauty supply store to get the African Pride product that I mentioned above, because then I can give a honest review back here in a few days or so to update you on how well it works to help refresh my box braids. With this being my Birthday month, I do want to get my hair braided again when I take these down and will be using the same sweet red color I have now but will mix it with the blonde color that I love using as well.

Box braids can last from 4 to 6 weeks. 6 weeks is the most time I would recommend keeping them in your hair and two months is the absolute max I would suggest leaving your box braids in. With getting these braids done I would like to keep them for at least a week or so before my Birthday which is Jan 21st so that I can get my hair braided again with possibly a new style done to celebrate.

Thank you so much for reading and coming to see what new stuff I share and talk about. There will be more hair content coming up within the next few days so keep a look out for that ladies. As always keep God first and stay blessed. HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
