Do you wrap your hair at night with a scarf? That would help it last longer

I have wrapped it up occasionally at night and wear a buff most of the time when I'm in the wind and sun. For me, they wear out due to the hair growing so fast, rather than them getting rubbed out. -Emily

Liv Any I’m not trying to start anything but someone wearing box braids is not culture appropriation it’s more culture appreciation. they’re trying to appreciate the African American culture but they get hated on for “trying to steal the culture” I have an two stepsisters who are mixed races, there dad is white and there mom is African American. they always love to share their African American culture with my siblings and I. yes it’s your culture and you should take pride off that but it’s 2018, people want to appreciate other cultures #equality.

Liv Any how does a culture take from another culture when there wasn't international travel? Do some actual history homework. You're implying "you guys" means everyone not black, therefore everyone else is white? Wow your ignorance has no limit does it? That's ok one day you'll learn, or you won't and these issuses will forever burden you
Olivia Hinson
Olivia Hinson - 2 years ago
MrsAngelsvoice9 yeah... because they are taking it from the blacks oml, and i said you guys... meaning your the one assuming because what i meant was all other races but if you wanna be a hypocrite and say you didn't lmao
MrsAngelsvoice9
MrsAngelsvoice9 - 2 years ago
Liv Any you typed "you guys literally have no culture of your own" and then mandate it's regarding white people..that's assumption. If you have the internet why don't you look up "white people around the world" there's plenty of people that have fair skin with deep cultural roots. Oh and they have used braided hairstyles LOL its not a black only thing
Olivia Hinson
Olivia Hinson - 2 years ago
MrsAngelsvoice9 i'm not assuming your background i'm talking about white people, and if it dosent apply to you then oh well, Still culture appropriation at the end, last time i checked the definintion of dictator was a ruler with hopeful power over a country... that dosen't apply, i'm not trying to make decisions for an entire country. And im assuming because theirs literally nothing to work with to know what race you are, other then your name lmaoo

MrsAngelsvoice9
MrsAngelsvoice9 - 2 years ago
Liv Any Its ok you're brainwashed good thing the world doesn't revolve around you.. Stop eating anything other than official native african foods if you want to go all appropriation. Now the "twerk" style dance is african as it is derived from native fertility celebration, but for hair well as I said its done around the world before there were international exchanges so no one culture can claim it.
Olivia Hinson
Olivia Hinson - 2 years ago
MrsAngelsvoice9 We claimed is years ago, & ya'll just want everything, like get over it you can't have everyone's culture, big deal but we want to keep at least one thing from our culture

Emily & Clark's Tiny Adventure its not hateful its me trying to defend my culture, and you don't respect it or acknowledge that its beautiful because of the black people, we made it, and your just saying the hair is beautiful not acknowledging who made it. You realize you won't be called to grown, gangster, ugly or hood like for wearing the hair like we do, you'll get praised for it if we let everyone take our hairs culture, you all would be the good looking ones with the braids and we'll be the ones who look nappy and un natural with them. Realize culture appropriation isn't to say " we hate it on you because your white" you obviously look amazing but its our culture that your taking on that we've had from way back to when we couldn't get into school for wearing them. And now that its excepted now, we want to keep it to where we feel acknowledged for it.

Emily & Clark's Tiny Adventure - 2 years ago
Of course you can. Any woman can braid her hair if she wants to. Emily does it to keep her long hair under control on the boat. Don't let anyone tell you they own the idea of braiding hair. That is just divisive and hateful.

You know what kinda appreciate you in this video because you kept the original name of the hairstyle which gives credit from where it came from you didn't call them cacuasion box braids or bo Derek braids which would have been irritating and disrespectful so thanks for appreciating my culture (sarcasm then a mothafucka)

Plus, African American's wear straight hair, so too you, does that mean African American's are stealing Caucasian culture? No, it doesn't. Human's can try out different thing's, We need to explore in life, and sometimes people want to try out different thing's, like this beautiful young woman in this video, she wanted to get box braids, like I said, I am a mixed background, but I have more Caucasian backgrounds than African American. So my skin is considered "White" What if you was "white", and the same race as you, and comment all these disrespectful things, would you be happy? You might be thinking; "Why are you so butt hurt?" Its because I see so many comments like this on a lot of video's with a Caucasian getting braids, Its disrespectful and im getting tired of it. That's all im trying to tell you, thank you.

Hair is hair. Skin is Skin. A country is a country. Even though box braids are from Africa and not a lot of Caucasian's have the type, does not mean only African Americans can have them, I'm a Mixed race of African American and Caucasian. She could be the same but if not, it does not matter, my point is a hairstyle is a hairstyle, Box braids do not copyright label that say Caucasian human's can not wear Box Braids Just please be more mindful and let Human's be human's.

So what is wigs , straight perms, flat irons? Also people all over the world where braiding as far back as a hundred thousand years ago or more and in all different ethnicities. The first extensions where done by Egyptians. Look up some origins of braiding. I'm Scandinavian and we have a long history of elaborate braiding as Vikings and nomades of the world. People who are on the sea braided thier hair for convenience and style. No ethnicity owns the braid it's human. Global citizens human beings we all the same.

Lexi Marie straight hair is not exclusive to white people don’t be so racist. Also black Ethiopian people and Somalian people can have straight hair. Black women can have long straight hair naturally. Indians Asians and other ethnic groups also can have straight hair. Straight hair has no cultural background. There is no such thing as white only Caucasian hair.

markandann wilson - 2 years ago
Lexi Marie No not true because black girls have no problem with white girls getting box braids ,hair extensions ,weaves. Just because Kim Kardashian calls cornrows ,hair extensions , box braids a trend does not mean it is a trend. Kim Kardashian is stupid and she needs to know the ancient Egyptians wore wigs weaves and sewn in hair pieces and hair extensions that dated back to 3400Bc.

Ciara I am sorry to hear about your experience in the job interview. Here in the Bahamas, many, many women in professional jobs wear box braids and it is seen as normal. They are beautiful, and a great way to protect hair and manage it in a hot, humid climate. I wish that the style was more accepted in the States for that reason. To be clear, I could likely not wear this hairstyle in a job interview in the U.S., either. Not just because they are box braids, but also because it's not traditionally a "white" hairstyle and it creates controversy for a lot of people. Regardless, I have chosen to wear them during this part of my life for practical reasons. I have extreme exposure to sun, wind and saltwater everyday and this is the best way I found to protect my thick, dry, wavy hair. Luckily, I work remotely so my "professional" outward appearance is not as important as it used to be. I made this video specifically to share the information with other women who sail and need a solution for their hair, since there are not a lot of videos out there about maintaining this style in hair like mine. I realize it is still a sensitive topic for a lot of people, but context is important.

Lexi Marie allow me to tell you a story... I was doing an interview in front of two Caucasian women of course I'm all about having natural hair (and they were braided) and never in my life I have worn weave especially loosely wavy straight hair. So course I got to thickest hair more like a 4C. They indirectly told me that I might have to perm or straightening my hair in order to get and keep the job. So I was desperate I really need the money and plus it was my first job so I did what they stated which was to wear weave. Not just go back and reread what I just commented. Notice how I was fine with wearing my natural hair during interview and my interviewers who were white they felt that I needed to change my texture in order to supposedly to look more groomed. Looking at this I am hurt to see this White women wearing braids when I couldn't even wear something that's natural during an interview. That's not fair and that's culture appropriation! So how dare you!

Drink Bleach I get the background. I’ve taken classes, I’m a cosmetologist & I do these hair styles all day. I have type 3 hair so my hair is course, thick and pretty damn curly lol. & I know white girls with type 4 hair. It’s nice to not have your hair out & protecting it from damage I don’t know why color has to be brought up in everything. Not like I’m disrespecting the style I completely appreciate where it originated from.
Thor, Son Of Odin
Thor, Son Of Odin - 3 years ago
Lexi Marie What are you talking about? You said black girls can’t get weave because it’s mimicking white hair, and I’m telling you white hair has no cultural background. Anyone can be born with straight hair, but the likeliness of being white and being born with Type 4 hair is slim to none. White girls have no need to get box braids. It’s a protective styling for our kinky hair to stimulate growth and prevent breakage, and our hair is coarse and thick enough to withstand the tugging as they’re being done. However, straight hair is weaker and it’ll break more easily. For people with straight hair, it’s a style choice, but for people with kinky curly hair it’s actually something beneficial. There is no need for white girls to wear box braids, there’s fuck all wrong with their hair.
