4. Wear a silk/satin scarf or bonnet at night.
Whenever I have braids, I tend to go into braided-hair-don’t care mode, meaning I sometimes neglect to cover it before bed. While this probably won’t cause any extreme damage to your tresses, wearing a scarf or bonnet helps decrease frizz. Covering your hair at night will tame your hair (new growth and all) and help with the longevity of those gorgeous box-braids.
