For the anon who asked about hairstyles you can do with boxbraids:
1) sailor moon pigtails~ separate your braids into two high up pig tails, and then take out a little section for the buns, wrap a hair tie around the high pony tails, wrap the extra braids around the pig tails, and then secure the buns with bobby pins
2) wrapped pony tail~ sorry the picture/example for this is so crappy looking!! I just do a high pony tail, separate a small section from underneath/the back, make a high pony tail with the rest in a hair tie, and then wrap the rest of the braids around the base kinda tight with some bobby pins.
3) french(ish) braids+fishtail braid~ I braid back the front two sections french braid style till they join in the back, and then braid the braids together fishtail braid-style into a long flat braid down the back. I also like doing this to the side, in which case I make a part on the side, start the braids (or just twist/roll them back from the front if I’m in a rush) from there, meet the braids together at whatever side I’m wearing the braid on, and then finish it off with a regular braid and a hair tie at the end.
4) half up odango/panda buns~ not sure what to call this?? the two buns up top are fun+keep the braids out of my face. I separate the top section of hair about an inch above my eyebrows to the back of my crown, split it down the middle, twist them into two buns, and secure them with bobby pins.
5) huge odango/double buns~ separate the braids into two high up pigtails, twist into flat-ish buns, and secure with bobby pins. I don’t have any pictures of my hair in a single bun up top, but it’s basically this with maybe a big hair tie+bobby pins if I’m gonna be running around buuut usually pins are enough if I pin it well enough.
6) side braid~ this is probably my number one go-to. Part the braids to the side, and just braid a chunk of braids starting at the front back into a braid, and secure with a hair tie. Super cute, super easy, aaand keeps your hair outta your face! 
7) head scarf~ this isn’t teeechnically a hair style, but it’s an easy way to cover up your head on those *I’ve got tons of new growth and no time to get my braids redone* days. 
I hope this was helpful!! Sorry they’re all crappy cell phone pictures, if anyone is interested in more in-depth/higher quality instructions, lemme know and I’ll post a tutorial video or something when I get my next set done! ^__^  (I don’t currently have braids in- I’m super impulsive about hair+it’s REALLY hot and humid right meow and I cut half my hair off the other day haha)

#Repost from @junglebarbiejulia FULL STORY. On the night of August 10 2013 I went to DC for my birthday to go to “Park Place”, an upscale restaurant. Upon my arrival at the entrance, at 11:30pm, before going to stand in the very long line I went to ask a patrolling officer where a nearby restroom was and before I could utter the words, I was met with an elbow and a right punch to my face. I was instantly knock out. My police report (which has changed numerous times this year) say I was arrest and processed at 1:50 am which is 2 hours that I was unaccounted for. I was left on the floor and when I woke up I was bleeding in multiple places with drag marks on my toes, my wrist were cut by the cuffs, the back of my head and arms were lumpy. The officers wouldn’t tell me why I was in jail and I overheard them saying what should we charge her with? We can’t say domestic, we don’t know who she is with. After pleading and begging to go to the hospital, I was met with more hostility before they finally let me go to the hospital the next days upon my release I had a rape kit done because I don’t know any thing that happened to me while knocked out and it came back positive for semen. They sent messages from my phone while I was detained. Internal Affairs came and confiscated my clothing (they never returned them) and they stole my rape kit. As of today I am facing charges for fighting a bouncer outside of the Lima Club, I was never there and its 5 minutes away from Park driving, also 5 officers that responded after I punched the manager to I was apparently Mike Tyson because when I woke up in jail I had the strength and gumption to fight some more officers in there. When the video was requested both clubs said they lost them. They follow me and stalk my home to this day, I have caught DC police trying to get in my home when they thought I had left, even the Baltimore cops help protect them, one in the rape department even asked me out on a date while my face was still battered. I have been trying to tell my story on IG only to find that police officers or this hired by then have been spamming my hashtag #justiceforjulia with blasphemous pictures. Please share her story.
