How long do tribal braids take to do?
It depends on the type of tribal barids that you decide to get. For example, large jumbo braids usually take less than 3 hours, while micro box braids can take more than 10 hours.

Also, don’t forget to take into consideration the time it takes to prep and detangles your own hair, the synthetic hair, and the breaks your hairstylist might take in between.

Yes, you can totally braid your own hair. In fact, I’ve been braiding my own hair for years (micro box braids), and it’s saved me SO much money it’s insane. And because of so much practice, it now only takes me around 5 hours to braid around 60 braids. There are so many tutorials on Youtube that you can watch to self-learn, and trust me, it’s not as difficult as it seems. All you need is some synthetic hair which you can buy on Amazon.

Do box braids damage hair?
Yes, it could. The most common problems with box braids include headaches, scalp irritation, and breakage due to pulling too hard on the roots of the knots while removing them. However, these problems can be alleviated by using silk wraps instead of rubber bands to tie off each section before taking out the braids. This will reduce tension on your scalp as well as reduce the risk of damaging your own natural locks during removal.
A helpful tip is to start removing the braids from the bottom and working your way up. This will help reduce tension on your head while you’re taking out the braids, resulting in less stress and damage to the actual box braid style.
How do you keep tribal braids fresh?
The best way to keep tribal braids fresh is to wash your scalp gently every one to two weeks, use an anti-frizz serum, oil your scalp liberally with coconut oil or olive oil before bed, and wear a protective hair bonnet that will allow you to rest easy without worrying about messing your hair up during sleep.
