Braiding hair into a single or layered pattern is simple when you use professional hair tools, such as the box braider. The length varies from just over six inches to more than ten inches and the shades of color available are black and red, usually followed by brown and yellow. These long flowing hair for box braids also doesn’t have an annoying fishy smell and the natural water-resistant quality of the fibres ensure that it doesn’t get one all over again soon. Long hair takes much longer to braid, sometimes as much as a whole day, so patience is definitely required if you want your results to be worth bearing. A professional hair drier is essential to make the process go smoothly, and it is important to have the right tools and to start in a well-lit area.
