Box braids failure!!

I tried getting box braids but most of them were falling out so I had to just take them all out. The girl that did them said my hair was 'too silly for braids' and that I wouldn't be able to get braids that last long but I really want box braids. Any tips?

Well, a good set of box braids depends on the braider, the stylist, and the person. Go for a braider who has more experience working with your texture of hair. Next go for products that are "tacky" or "sticky" this will keep the braids from falling out as soon as you get them in. This will give them time to "set" so that they will stay a little longer. Next, be mindful of how you care for them. What was your regimen like when you had them in? Was your hair too oily?
