Braids which are woven into the hair are not just for girls. Braids are becoming a popular fashion trend for boys as well. Many boys are choosing to have the hair braided into short braids to maintain an easy upkeep of the style. This way, the boy can easily have the hair braids created and woven into the hair and not have to worry about upkeep until the braids begin to grow out, at least six to eight weeks later. Through this time, the hassle free hairstyle can become an easy maintenance coiffed haircut.
There are many individuals that are able to braid and weave these creations into the hair, with skills that have been passed from family member to member, from generation to generation. In the case that you do not have these skills, rest assured that you will be able to find a hair stylist that is experienced in creating hair braids and can create a variety of styles that make use of the popular braided styles for boys. Through the expertise, the hair can also be protected from the damage that can come from tightly woven braids, when a stylist has created the hairstyle.
When the hair is woven tightly into these small braids, it can greatly reduce the moisture in which the hair obtains from conditioner and other types of products. Therefore, it is crucial to deep condition the hair before the hair has been woven into tight braids. Leave in conditioner can be applied to the hair weekly as well, to offset the damage that can come from the braids. A stylist will have access to top of the line conditioners and styling tools which can be used to offset the potential damage to the hair.
The braids should be removed every eight weeks to give the hair time to recover from the tightly woven braids.
