4 Reasons Why Bob Braids Are The Next Best Thing


I’ve had my bob braids for about four weeks now and I’m thinking of installing the same style after taking it down. Yep! That’s how much I enjoy the style. This week I’m gonna be sharing four reasons why I’m gonna be re-installing and why you should too.

1. It’s super convenient.
The other day, I was talking to a friend of mine (who also has bob braids) about the convenience of the style and she agreed with me. I haven’t had to wake up thinking of how to style my hair – which can be a hassle sometimes. I just moisturize and go. I don’t have to think about putting anything in place because it’s in a default style. The only thing I really do is take the braids off my face with bobby pins. This is enough reason for me to re-do them.

2. It’s cheaper to install
If you’re a cheapskate like me, this might become your go-to style. It’s way cheaper as you might just have to use one or two packs of extensions. If you’re lucky, you might get away with just one pack. With this style, I know that even when I’m broke, i could still look decent.

3. It’s easier to maintain
I’m one of those people who can’t do without washing braids and extensions in general. So, I didn’t hesitate to wash my bob braids after the first two weeks. Just as I had imagined, it was easier to wash. I could focus on my scalp and air dry conveniently. Fortunately, it took just a couple of hours – half the time it takes for regular box braids to dry. Every other day, I moisturize with my hair spritz which comprises of aloe vera juice, leave-in, coconut oil, tea tree and lavender oil. I finish it up with massaging my edges with castor oil.

4. There are hardly any styling difficulties
As I said earlier, there are no styling challenges. If you don’t like the plain look of the braids, you could easily switch things up by adding accessories.
