What are Boho Braids?

Bohemian braids are a relaxed, free-spirited hairstyle perfect for embracing one’s natural texture. They are a kind of box braids involving intricately braiding hair in non-traditional patterns to create a relaxed undone look.

This look is perfect for everybody as it looks amazing on short, medium, and long hair. Plus, these braids are lightweight, soft, and very feminine.

If you are planning on braiding your bohemian braids at home, then stylists recommend getting kanekalon hair extensions because it has the perfect texture for braiding.

How to get my Natural Hair Ready for Styling?

The following tips will help you prepare your natural hair for installation:

1) Shampoo: Always shampoo your hair before doing a protective style. This step is not optional. Preferably choose a shampoo that isn’t loaded with synthetic ingredients such as paraben and sulphates.

While shampooing scrub your scalp thoroughly in order to remove product build-up. It is important that you shampoo your scalp thoroughly because you won’t be able to clean your scalp deeply for at least one month.

2) Condition: Once you have thoroughly removed product build-up, debris, and dust from your hair, then it is time to add the moisture lost during shampooing with a deep moisturizing conditioner.

Use a quality conditioner that is rich in oils and emollients to moisturize your dry hair. While putting conditioner on your hair, use a wide-toothed comb to evenly distribute the product. Focus on detangling your hair during this part as well.

3) Moisturize your hair: Apply a deep moisturizer to your hair after rinsing the conditioner. Use a wide-toothed comb to apply the moisturizer evenly to the ends of your hair.

4) Stretch your hair: This step is optional for all hair types except very tightly coiled or kinky hair. By stretching your hair out, you are making it easier for your hair to blend while braiding.

How can I Stretch Naturally Kinky Hair?

Follow any of the following techniques to stretch your hair from the convenience of your home-

1) Blow Dry: The easiest way to stretch your hair is with a blow dryer. You don’t have to use heat on your hair while you brush through your hair. Use a heat protectant beforehand if you think your hair will need heat in order to stretch.

2) Elastic bands: The elastic band method is a 100% heat-free method of stretching your hair. You need to separate your hair into equal sections and put a small elastic band around each section. Then wrap the elastic band around the length of each section in order to stretch it.

Start wrapping at your roots and stop wrapping when you get to the ends. Remove the bands when your hair has completely dried off and not before otherwise, they’ll revert to their original texture.

3) Make a bun: Making a bun out of your hair is also another way to stretch your hair. This stretching method works best on damp hair. Start by detangling your hair and pulling it into a ponytail at the center of your head.

Secure this with an elastic band and then twist the length of your ponytail to the end. Finally, use bobby pins to secure the ponytail and cover your hair with a silk scarf overnight.

How to Take Care of Bohemian Braids?

There are many ways to take care of your bohemian braids in order to ensure that they will last you at least 4 to 8 weeks. Some of these are-

1) Spraying jojoba oil and water periodically on your hair in order to replenish the moisture of your natural hair.

2) Keeping your locs in a bun while sleeping.

3) Wrapping the edges of the hair with a satin or silk scarf or sleeping on silk or satin pillowcases.

4) Use scalp serums to keep your scalp moisturized.

How to Safely Remove Bohemian Braids from your Hair with Minimum Breakage?

The best way to safely remove your bohemian braid extension with minimum breakage is by starting at the bottom and moving your way upwards.

Cut the end of the loc just before your natural hair, unravel the hair, and slip it out of the base of the braid.

Keep some oil and a spray bottle handy in order to loosen any build-up. It is important that you take breaks in between otherwise you can get frustrated and tired.

Bohemian Braids at home

You’ll require the following products if you wish to install bohemian braids yourself-

  • 6 to 8 packs of pre-stretched braiding hair
  • Hair Gel
  • Rat tail comb
  • Moisturizing mousse

Step 1: Wash your hair

Since this look is installed for at least 4 to 6 weeks, it is important that you clean your hair before installation. Use a sulphate and paraben-free shampoo that doesn’t strip your hair of its natural oils.

Step 2: Part your hair

Use a rat tail comb to section and part your hair. Once you have parted your hair, use a non-flaky edge-control gel to make your parts sleek.

Step 3: Lay your edges

Lay your edges with a toothbrush. Apply edge-control gel evenly throughout your hair and then apply the gel to your brush and use it to brush your baby hair in your preferred shape.

Step 4: Scalp Care

Keep your natural hair clean and moisturized in order to promote hair growth even when your hair is wrapped in a protective style. Use a leave-in conditioner to hydrate any dry patches on your scalp.
