Box Braids are a convenient protective hair style that never goes out of style. They are also easy to take care of. With the open parting it makes moisturizing easier than ever. Thin braids are perfect for the illusion of micro braids. They mimic a loose strand like texture that is easy to manipulate and style. Beware that the smaller the braid the more weight that your head will carry.

Overall they are fairly simple to do but when in doubt just do a quick search on YouTube or seek out your local beautician for back up. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to simple Box Braids. Almost every hair salon has or knows someone that can bring your looks to life! The most daunting task is actually sitting and waiting for your hair to be complete. So make sure to bring all of your favorite snacks and magazines for the estimated 5 hour ride. In the mist of things, don’t forget to monitor your edges to make sure they don’t disappear in the process!

Top 8 Moisture-Friendly Natural Hair Styles

Bantu Knots– These are perfect, especially after wash day. Once your natural hair is cleansed you can saturate your hair from root to tip with your favorite oils. Then add some edge control to completely finish off your look. This look is great for moisture retention because it leaves the majority of your natural hair unexposed. The least of your hair is exposed the least likely your hair will be able to lose its moisture.

Up-do– Quick and easy! This look can be achieved with a simple tuck and roll. After you have already detangled and moisturized your natural hair, you can now begin to style. Start with the back by rolling the hair in an upward motion and securing it with several bobby pins. Next, tuck the front hair section in to the upward roll. Voila!

Box Braids– This is a great hair style for naturals who want to keep their hair correct in a bomb protective style! Box braids are the perfect hair style that makes adding moisture a breeze. By using a plastic applicator tipped bottle filled with your favorite oils, you can safely and regularly moisturize your natural hair in a flash.

Cornrows– These types of braids are ideal for easy access. You can use your hands or an applicator to routinely apply moisture to your natural hair. The only hair routine you need to maintain this style is to nightly wrapping your hair with a silk scarf.

Marley twists– You can achieve this look with extensions as a protective hair style. Similar to the box braids, retaining moisture with this look is easy due to the open partings.

Head Wrap– Grab any bold printed fabric and wrap it around your natural hair. This works extremely well with freshly washed hair. This will help to stretch out your hair without using any heat.
