As braids season approaches, we know you've been spending a lot of time thinking about your next protective style, but since it hasn't yet been deemed safe for everyone to book their next hair appointment, a lot of us have been inclined to take on the process of braiding our own hair at home. And because many beauty supply stores remain closed for now, getting all of your hair braiding essentials may be a little more difficult than usual — but one brand is attempting to fix that issue.
NH Beauty Supply, a beauty supply store operating out of Dallas, TX, is currently selling box braid kits that come with everything you need to successfully braid your hair at home. The Black Box Braids Kit ($44) comes with six packs of synthetic braiding hair, styling gel, a rat tail comb, hair clips, rubber bands (for anyone using the rubber band method), and braid accessories. You can obviously use it to complete whatever style you desire outside of box braids, whether it be twists, cornrows, goddess braids, or even faux locs.
In case you're interested in adding a pop of colour, the braiding hair in the kit is also available in a variety of colours like black, jet black, natural black, brown, and honey blond, among a handful of others, though we'll note that the product listing recommends that customers soak the hair in apple cider vinegar to rinse the chemicals off before installing it. Head over to NH Beauty Supply to purchase one before they sell out.
