Okay, so...... after spending countless hours on Wednesday and Thursday undoing box braids, I am not in the mood to do small twists. So my new protective style will be about 12 box braids underneath a lace front wig. I do not glue or tape my wig so my edges will be safe.
I will! I am in big two strand twists now and will wear a twist out on the weekend. Sunday night, I will do my box braids and post pics of them and the wig then. Why are you scared to try a wig? There are some cute ones out there and, in my opinion, it is the easiest and most effortless way to retain length and still look fly. I wore them all throughout my almost 11 month transition and the first month after I big chopped. My hair is way too thick to do simple protective styles like two french braids or a bun or chunky twists, so I have to do small two strand twists and small box braids in order to have a style that lasts. This stuff takes entirely too long to put in and take out so I'm going back to something simple.
