D.I.Y Box Braids| Rubber-band Method

7 comments

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.

The next time I attempt this look, I want to try crochet box braids I heard it is possibly easier and takes less time! All you do is braid your hair straight back in cornrows and crochet the hair to your braids. It seems to be a no fuss, no mess method.  Crochet Box Braids

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! 🙂
