D.I.Y Box Braids| Rubber-band Method


Heyyyyyy GGuuyysss!! So recently I decided to try something different with my hair. I was really tired of trying to find hairs styles for my natural hair. As a matter of fact, I was tired of fixing my hair in general. So I decided to do a hairstyle that I do with my oldest child all the time.  I originally saw this rubberband box braid method a few years ago and it proved great protective style on my daughter’s hair. This style can last 3-4 weeks with proper care and super easy to do!


Let just say its a style that is way more difficult to do on yourself than someone else but it can be done. It was even easier because I always like for my braids to look a bit natural. So I wasn’t so concerned with the parting being absolutely perfect.  Since this was my first real try on myself and having 2 children to take care of this “project” took about 6 hours but in actuality, it should have only taken me 2…..3 hours tops because  I didn’t have that many braids. None the less I got it done and I don’t have to worry about my hair for a few weeks.


Without further ado! hit the video below to see how I accomplished this look.

If you would like an extremely in-depth post, be sure to leave a comment below and I will do another demonstration on my daughter 🙂

    1. Thank you so much!! I do it on my oldest child all the time but for some reason was afraid to do it on myself. I think more so afraid of the time it would take than anything else. I love this method because its less stress on the hair especially around the edges.

      1. Yes, I’m definitely trying to keep my edges lol! And I know if I do it on myself I’ll go easier on them. I hope I get the courage to do them this summer. Thanks for posting how you did yours! 🙂
