Protective Style Box Braids Breaking Hairs?

okay so I got box braids installed a few days ago and I've noticed small short hairs at the time of the box braids that seem like they're broken off from the top of my box braids, I don't know if this is normal or something but I just want to ask? I'll show a picture. my hair is very much so longer than that so I'm confused to if this is normal

I've never had box braids put into my hair before, but I do know for a fact that when I wear the same braid over a period of days, I start seeing hair at the top of my braids, poking out. I do not know whether it is because of the lack of moisture or because some of the hair is shorter than others, but I am pretty sure that it is normal for hair to do that! Just make sure you are keeping your hair moisturised and you should be fine! I wish you all the best of luck!- Danielle
