I had so many compliments especially with this blue the blue is just giving me life and Yes, I am about to take it out But make sure you guys like comment and subscribe and trying to notifications because I’ll be close enough for it. So All you really need it’s like, you know a big comb you need a big tooth comb you need a tail comb Of course not too thin of a teeth I pick and that’s about it. You guys need scissors So make sure you cut it at least two to three inches away from your natural hair and There’s some 1/8. Of course. My husband’s gonna come and help me right now And I’m about to start to take on my boss spray. So I’ll showing you guys because a lot of you guys Make comments that your hair is gonna drive if you were to retwist your roots I’m gonna let you know that no it does not. Okay. Um as well as My roots on Undo itself basically, so it doesn’t even stay in there We twisted method that you’ve seen the past videos in this video if you want to see ya this video It’s not like that at all right now as you can see, so Some may be twisted But I’m going to show you how to unravel and take all your box braids So you don’t have a whole clump of hair coming up. Alright? We’re gonna start right now Taking out one that has actually been in there for five months So you can see. All right, so I feel loose over here So I’ll show you how I take this one out, okay Guys so I am Getting to the root Take your time pull the parts. Okay once you get there All right guys so There is the root the build up as you can see it’s not Dreaded at the root It just has the dirt build up. Maybe this is what you guys are talking about. You’re talking about the dirt build up Well, that’s just build up from like, you know having it in for like the past five months. I don’t use nothing, but my fingertips and I just use my fingers and open also what you can do is you can grab your tail comb and Put the comb in it just like so and What you’re doing is you’re softening up the dirt with this. I don’t use no water I don’t use no conditioner or anything like that because I find that it would just Clump it up even more so in its dry natural form when you know, you’re about to take it out Don’t all your roots. Don’t put nothing like Heavy in your roots at all. Just let it observe When it’s dry and dusty it’s way better to take out, okay? so as I said I used a comb and I break the I break it apart with the comb the dirt once I do that I Use my fingers and gently pull apart As you can see it’s opening up and this is from five months, okay And look at that and not what you’re gonna do Start with the ends you comb up and you just gently comb out the dirt from the roots part Now once you do that you’re done and that was one braid So this is five months. So I’m going to have some hair loss at each braid. It’s just a normal thing. So Yeah okay, so This is about what I have in one braid Okay, guys Five months as soon as you take on your box braids, you’re gonna have some shedding, of course you are Of course, you’re gonna see all that dirt flying all the little place And that is it See You here to roll out No more so, yeah guys, it didn’t drag you just have to know how to take it out and The size is what matters as well if your here is if you get your box braids done And it’s a little bit thicker at the root. It’s so much better But if you’re doing smaller brazen mine micro braids and you’re putting in a whole bunch of crap in your hair Expect some you know, you know locking of the Some of that sort. I’m not trying to say that you can never get your roots locked But just know what you’re doing educate yourself and I feel like a lot of we’re not educating themselves Because I am educated because I’ve been doing this for years So you guys can’t tell me that my hair is gonna dry to tell other people I’m just letting you know what works for me and it may work for you and just use your discussion That’s that’s all no your hair. No yourself and you’ll be fine as you can see that dirt just Dust dust away you break it apart with your comb and that is it and I’m gonna do the rest of my hair now So I hope you guys Understand what I was trying to tell you. I know I didn’t show you but finally I’m getting this video to you guys and I’m happy that I’m doing that so Yeah, pretty exciting that I’m taking this out because as my husband said he sees the girl I could never you know This is like maybe almost the top of my head and I’m actually like, you know putting it for it I have a look-alike, which is pretty exciting so the rest of my year and that’s all you guys need and I’m glad that I’m doing this video because there was a lot of comments that oh you’re here So they drag your hairs when they’re dragging As you guys can see my hair did not dry. It’s dirt buildup. I’m gonna show you one that was twisted It was already retwisting and it Kassadin stayed some of them don’t it? Unravels and don’t stay like that if you retwist your roots every now and then to go Wow, I did it four times in five months. You don’t need to do it often this one is a bit twisted and all you do is You untwist it? So which way is it twisted if it’s twisted that way? you twisted the opposite direction and voila guys Look at that, it’s not Jenny and you can space it out. You can open it. It’s good So once you do that, you pull it forward and you start I’m plotting I’m gonna do another braid for you guys. So must be this product Okay guys now I’m at the top I’m gonna show you how I take this out. Once again, make sure you pay attention So you see all that dirt Whole bunch of dirt very clumpy, it’s very tight Dottie okay. So I’m gonna use my fingers first and pull as much as they can apart Okay And guys, let me remind you guys This is the same one that was retwisting that I showed you that I untwisted and I pulled out so the last bit of the dirt Under so you use my comb once again And just breaking apart as much as I can Make sure that it’s a pointy comb and it’s not no Stockholm like this is more harder, okay? And you just break it apart Okay Once you do that user fingers once again and Feel each strand try to feel each strand and open it up Once you do that you get your comb start from the ending of the hair and You work your way up and you try to just slide the dirt off your Strengths take your time. There’s no race. Make sure you guys have time to do this Don’t say oh I’m gonna get my I’m gonna take off my hair and later on to get my hair done I have an appointment.

    Why do people trip off of box braids being left in for an extended time? It's not like you can't wash them. And how is this any different from people who have permanent dread loc extensions that they leave in for years. I always leave my box braids in 4 months at a time and my hair grows like a weed.

  • Noloyiso Nolloyd says:

    i went through the comments and got annoyed on behalf of the vlogger

  • Alexandria Brown says:

    The "clump", the "dirt", is actually product build up from creams and conditioners. You can minimize it by not putting products in the area where hair and extension join.

  • Carmilla Ikis says:

    That be my hair growth for a month and a half.

  • Carmilla Ikis says:

    That be my hair growth for a month and a half.

  • Jaycine Kennedy says:

  • priscah says:

    5 what?! 😱

  • Michelle R says:

    I personally think your braids are beautiful and some of these diluted morons commenting on the dirt that has accumulated after 5 months have no common sense. Of course you wash your hair as you should but with braids you cannot get every single area and there is going to be some build up. Its not like youre a dirty person as some of these comments are meant to imply. You wash your hair, you bath etc. These idiots need to come off it.

  • maureen gee says:

    Ooooo that’s nasty.

  • puddin cup says:

  • Stephanie Day says:

  • Alise Jansone says:


  • S. T.S. says:

    That's not Dirt I'm sure you washed your hair in 5 months. That's a tangle of natural hair shedding, lint and any oil you used to grease your scalp

  • MeMe So Free says:

    OMG!!!! 5 MONTHS!!!!! I can not even make it to A month, they become so messy, I wear a scarf! I don't bother them!!!! And I wish upon a 🌟 to At least leave them in for two months!

  • Keziah Humphrey says:

    yeah i know five months may seem like ah long time but along with washing, she also made them look new and fresher after a while of having them so maybe thats why it extended to 5 months.

  • BelleAmii says:

  • Q Story says:

  • friendly australian girl that used to work here says:

  • Nephtalie Bottoms says:

    5months damn that longer than any relationship I've ever had

  • Carla P says:

    Hi, thanks for the video. I usually do my own braids and take them down 2-3weeks later. But this time I want to keep them in longer as I paid someone else to do them. How long does this process take?

  • bxboo823 says:

    This is me right now. I began to feel so attached to my braids. Anyways all good things much come to an end.

  • Simply Shaye says:

    Idk how people can leave their hair up this long I just can't I be trying for 2 months but just can't 😭

  • Edna Smith says:

    This is how my hair looked after to months braid stayed in I also twisted my roots nothing happened.

  • Shook Mercy says:

  • Alexis Mayers says:

  • Keaja Alexander says:

  • Illyana Morales Cook says:


  • lifewit gia says:

    Ew sis Who the fuck leaves their braids and that long .

  • orlanda ellis says:

    How much did your hair grow?

  • Melissa Green says:

    Had mines for 6. Months and my hair didn't loc up either …. And it grew

  • Marceline Motivation World says:

    5 months ??? That’s plain nasty 😷 5 months with the same looks .

  • Nicole Smith says:

    This doesnt faze me after learning that my coworker kept her box braids in for almost a year. She would go every 2 months and get her edges touched up. She went from a tapered cut, to a medium fro. One of the many benefits of kinky hair. Our styles last for a long time.

  • Munchies ASMR says:

    5 months is pushing the longest should be 3 months period

  • Parris Traylor says:

    The fact that people click on a video that say taking down my five months braids to complain about how long she kept them in💀 why click on the video.

  • Britania Wilson says:

    The whole locing thing depends on your hair texture, my hair is type 3 and has a more silky texture rather than coarse and if I use a lot of products and leave it in for about 5 months PLUS I do them extremely tiny, they can sometimes be stubborn and look to be on the verge of locing. Otherwise I dont see many people with that issue. Ohh and because of my hair texture the braids slip a bit down the strand of my hair, even like a day after so all that exposed hair thats no longer in the braid starts to curl and coil around each other as time progresses and gets stubborn in the 4 month period and onwards for me.

  • Tia Maxwell says:

    That can cause you lice

  • S Gordon says:

    The amount of black women under this comment section condoning this nasty behavior is appalling. There is absolutely no excuse for your hair to be kept in extensions for months at a time. This chick had clumps of dirt in her head…between the gym and the clubs, I know her head stank! 🤮. Take out the extensions and wash your hair often ladies. Ya’ll swear ya shit don’t stink, but I’m here to tell you that it does!!! Maybe you’re accustomed to the stench or something 🥴

  • 🤡Pierrot🤡 says:

    I eat ass. You on board?

  • John Owens says:

    Nope. Olive makes it much easier for me. Not going to manipulate my hair dry like that.

  • Mz Muzyk says:

    Those look sooooooo good to be in for five months !! Whoever did them did a great job AND I see plenty of new growth

  • msdockery89 says:

    Braids are suppose to stay in for no longer than 3 months. I’m surprised her hair is not into shock from the tightness of the braids.

  • magiesq says:

    pretty gross, just thinking about not really washing your hair or giving it a break from fake hair…main benefit of doing your own hair is not having to put up with nonsense of 'getting ones' money worth' I mean I know folks do it but hair doesn't grow THAT fast to justify it with being a protective style. I mean its like not bathing to get the benefit of the natural oils your body produces…

  • nyla3407 says:

    Instead of twisting just take the braids down on the top middle and sides of your head and get them redone leaving the rest of your braids in. This will make it look like you have a new set of braids and it will also keep your hair from dreading

  • Kyndahl Barney says:

    5months wow

  • maty mat says:

    sis 5 month…euh thats nasty
    please remove
    its a long time

  • FeeFee 86 says:

    I always leave my box braids up for 2 months that's the least!!

  • NVLLVH ALYAH says:

    Heard the accent and KNEW you were a fellow Bajan 💛💙

  • Nisey says:

    I had box braids and washed my hair regularly for two months and instill had build up in the same place. I wouldn't recommend it because for longer hair, it tends to tangle a bit. Maybe the feed in box braids may be better. I just don't like when ppl let braids stay in for a long time and don't wash them..

  • lawalker2012 says:

    I wanted to say thank you very much for this video and info that you shared. I'm currently taking down my box braids of 4 months. I have 4C hair super coily and tight curls. I was nearly in tears after reading all the articles that tell you your hair will lock up, I was also scared that mine did. Thanks to you I know how to properly maintain my hair after box braids. Just wanted to say God bless you and thank you for sharing and demonstrating.

  • Hope 44 says:

    Doesn’t all that dirt smell?

  • Alexis Jones says:

    If you love the braids so much why not just get your hair redone?

  • Mememe 155 says:

    Are you Caribbean? That explains it 🤢

  • Just Kayla.e says:

    Some people hairs break off from the twist method my did 2 years ago never will I do it again

  • H.L.I.C G. says:

    I can barely last a month with my braids in Lol! But then again I do my own hair && I get bored with styles easily so maybe thats why. I try to go at least 2 months but I give in && take em out Lol!

  • Anime Queen says:

    When I first read the title i was like 'its no big deal' then i read it again and i was like '5 MONTHS!'

  • KMD KMD says:

    My hair locks after 2 mos. I literally can't pull apart my hair without breaking my hair (conditioner and all).

  • Sly Fox says:

    What Does she mean she twist them?

  • and I oof says:

    this was like asmr to me for some reason

  • CeceAri says:

    Your edges look pissed. That's no good for your hair.

  • María Williams Ferguson says:

    It grown like 3 cm

  • Cecilia Star says:

    It easier when you use hair oil to take out the build up dirt.

  • Lydia Talks says:

    God loves you that's why he sent his only son Jesus to die for all our sins. He is the only one that gives true peace. And we can only attain this inner peace when we surrender our lives to Him. We wouldn't only enjoy his favour and love on earth but also when we die or when Christ comes he'll take us to Heaven too😇😍🌱

  • Sunni D says:

    Awesome video and I love how our guys never complain about hair take out duty !

  • Brooklyn Lovato says:

    When I wear braids, they twist themselves 😂 I don't gotta get them twisted or nothing they just do it on their own. I also like using coconut oil to get out the build up at the knot of the braid.

  • Mwen pap achte figiw says:

    Much love for black men 😍😍😍😠

  • Nikki Nik says:

    5 months n and they still look pretty good actually

  • Upgrade Your Life says:

    Y'all are so cute

  • jackie a says:

    I'm happy for you that you're hair didn't break. Your hair was meant for this type of braiding because your scalp is clean. You've got no dandruff. In fact, for 5 months, your braids still looks fresh. I'm even more happy for you that you and your husband have such a loving bond.

  • Tara Dukes says:

    I leave mine in for 3months.if I see my hair has grown I will wash it deep conditione it wait a week then put braids right back in.I love her hair and growth. Some of yall dont know black hair.

  • Kehinde Rowland says:

    For 5 months that hair looks pretty neat🤔 i’m already 9 weeks in and mine is really frizzy and my hair is already poking out through the extensions.

  • Diamond Princess says:

    She is sooo pretty

  • Kountess Dough says:

    Spray some leave in conditioner in it let it sit for a minute and the knoxs will come straight out. And the longest I ever left my hair up was 7 months.

  • christine1962ful says:

    In all honesty, I was expecting more length retention if you have been doing this method for years? However, I don't know what length you started wearing your box braids. Not saying this with any negative connotation ms just my thoughts and observations from the video comments

  • LaShell Anderson says:

    It's better if u keep your hair oiled, washed and deep conditioned while it's in it and the take down is so much easier

  • Chanel Cash says:

    In NY they started charging about $200 for box braids so I damn sure gonna keep them in for more then 3months !

  • rko32491 says:

    Wtf. Mine grew out after 2 weeks. Luckily I just paid my cousin $30. I wish I could leave mine in that long. The first and last time I did that lol

  • Elizabeth Cummins says:

    Shes pretty

  • Kerisha Tyrell says:

    I have never worn braids pass 1 month……..Are you from yaad, you sound like it.
