Box Braids Brisbane

Knotless braids have been around since the early 2000's but after years of being on the fringe of hair braiding they've taken over. The term knotless references the knot used to start traditional box braids. With traditional box braids, the braider would secure the braiding hair tightly to the scalp, forming a knot. Unlike regular box braids, the knotless kind is, just that, knotless. There's no bulge of hair stemming from the scalp, and instead, the root is flat and smooth. Additionally, knotless box braids don't require a high pain tolerance like many other protective braided styles do. Gone are the days of taking Tylenol before sitting in a salon chair for half the day, restless nights after first getting your braids installed, or being too scared to put your hair in a bun right away All of this isn't to say that regular box braids are an inferior option to the knotless style. In fact, since knotless box braids expose more natural hair at the root, they also tend to get frizzier faster, meaning they may not last as long as the traditional version. For those who spend a lot of their time swimming come summer, Oludele suggests considering knotted box braids. Also, since the process tends to take longer than regular box braids (expect to tack on an extra 15-20 minutes depending on the size and length, Oludele says), some stylists may charge more.   KNOTLESS BOX BRAIDS ARE THE MUST-TRY PROTECTIVE HAIRSTYLE OF THE MOMENT     Full article here:
