Should I get box braids?

So I've been wanting box braids for a while, but I feel as though the problem is that I'm white. I don't want people to be offended by something that I admire. I think box braids are beautiful and I've always wanted some. I'm also trying to grow out my pixie cut and I want to grow it out healthy instead of constantly using heat and damaging it. Also, I'm in high school and the school I go to is filled with judgmental white people. I want to do it but I'm a little hesitant. Any suggestions?

  • I don't think long term braids are good for our hair texture. Like how often do you wash your hair rn?

    • I usually wash it around 2 times a week. It doesn't get greasy easily too.

    • Yeah. When you get braid like that you're not really meant to wash your hair more than like once a month. And if your hair isn't trained to go that long it's going to get super greasy.
