X-pressions and some synthetic extensions have an alkaline chemical which causes scalp itchiness if you are allergic. Please make sure you soak these braids in Apple Cider Vinegar or any kind of vinegar before use. Once soaked, the braids will release a white residue. The Apple Cider Vinegar helps to remove the effect of this chemical. Watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YT0MZ9okkI.
If you experience itchiness after braiding, spray your hair with Apple Cider Vinegar and Water Mixture (1:1 if this is ineffective 2:1) and rinse out.
- They’re high quality, high temperature synthetic fibre
- They can easily be sealed with hot water or a flat iron rather than a lighter/candle or direct flame.
- Super easy to Braid and Twist
Ok, Cool. How Many Packets Will I Need For Medium-Thickness Box Braids?
If your hair is quite thick, you’ll need about 4-6 packets, if your hair is thinner, 5 packets will be enough.
For Feed in braids 2.5 packets is enough.
