Simple Box Braid Question

anonymous_114091anonymous_114091 Posts: 126Registered Users
I just got box braids for the first time, and I'm so excited! However I find that using a spray moisturizer to hydrate my braids, for me, is tedious, so what I've been doing is dampening the portion of my braids that contain my actual hair, sectioning my braids into 4 sections, and applying Alba Botanical leave-in conditioner (it's a creamy leave-in)with damp hands onto the dampened sections and squeezing the braids with my hands so the conditioner can penetrate. Lastly I coat the sections with coconut oil. Is this an effective method? Your opinions are highly appreciated.

    Yes it is, but it seems more tedious than simply just spraying your braids???

    Be careful with the creamy conditioner as it may cause your braids to slip quicker

    Thank you, coilynapp. I decided to try the spray method again a couple of days ago, using a different kind of spray bottle. Turns out my old spray bottle was defective. It would only squirt thin streams of product, which was annoying. My new bottle sprays very well so I'm spraying my braids now :smile:
