Jumbo Box Braids 

If you’re looking to obtain great length and strength from your hair then jumbo box braids just might be the hairstyle for you. Not only do they look amazing but their jumbo nature allows for the hair to grow stronger as their larger braid pieces reduce the chances of breakage. However, despite braiding its important to always keep your hair moisturized as this is one of the main ingredients needed to obtain strong and healthy hair. So remember to always base your scalp once your hair has been braided to keep it well hydrated.

Bantu Knots 

Next we have the beautiful bantu knots which are always a great go to if you can’t always get your hands on hair piece extensions. You can simply do this hairstyle on your own natural hair as you work through the head. Whether you choose to use the braiding or twisting technique the outcome is always beautiful.

Many often use beads, clips or other types of decorative pieces to adorn the style.
