Box Braids: Individuals


Jordyn had been telling me for the longest time that she wanted braids with added hair, I think she saw a girl at school with some and got inspired 🙂

Well I thought to myself that’s not a bad idea that would actually save me time in the morning from styling and/or combing hair. But I also knew I didn’t want to pay anyone to do them when they look to easy to do yourself. So I talked with my cousin who braids her daughter’s hair and then checked out YouTube for a visual (my cousin lives in VA)

I got the hang of how to attach the fake hair to her real hair, there are many different methods people use but I found the easiest way for me was starting with the fake hair under the real hair and bringing the two ends up and over one another and over the real hair like a breast cancer cross and then proceeding to braid and using the real hair as my third part of the braid. The real hair stayed in the middle and the fake hair on the outer sides.

six hours later we were done 🙂

I used 3 packs of 100% Kanekalon hair

Here are more pictures:



I didn’t make the braids or the parts small because I wanted them to be easy to take out, or I was just being lazy, either way 🙂

She has had them in for 3 weeks now and we are both happy. I will do an update post on how we are maintaining her braids so stay tuned!

    So cute! I’ve been doing box braids on and off my daughters hair for a while. It’s twisted now, but as soon as they come out it’s back to the braids.
