    That was great! I spent close to 2 hours refreshing maybe 20 box braids last night and still have many more to go, plus another whole head. It was nice to see someone else tackling it as well!

    How often do you refresh the braids? How many of the braids were you going to have to refresh? Did you use any cream or just the water-based spray?

    Love the video – keep ’em coming! 🙂

    Hi Monica!

    Because I knew I would be tight on time the upcoming weeks, I was refreshing the top of her hair after about 2 weeks in this video, but with a good hold product I would say I can go definately 3-4 weeks without retouching. In this video, it was simply water due the existing oil in her hair from braiding it initially. See our product review for Queene Helene’s ‘Royal Curl’ Smoothing Oil. Made taking it down really easy, but I needed a little more hold to minimize frizz. BBH is very active.

    Anywho, if it weren’t for the oil, I would have used a water and leave in conditioner mix.
