“Braids can last a maximum of 10 weeks if the hairline and nape are redone at the six-week mark,” Hill explains. “If the hairline and neck are not re-done at the six-week mark, eight weeks is the maximum amount of time you can keep your hair in a braided style.”

Again, you don’t have as much access to your scalp, so taking care of your natural hair may be difficult. And with fewer braids, there aren’t as many ways to style them. You should consider purchasing 7- 8 packs for mid-length jumbo braids and expect to pay between $65 – $175* for the braiding service.

Goddess braids are essentially thicker cornrows. They’re bigger in size, raised higher, and are also braided closely to your scalp. They can be styled in so many ways for every occasion; you can go from the gym, straight to work, then out to drinks, all while protecting your hair and looking superchic.
Gather and split your extension hair into two parts, a large section, and a small section. Then, fold the smaller section over the larger which should leave you with 3 even pieces. Synthetic braiding hair is the best hair to use for box braids.
