How To: Rubber Band Method Box Braid Tutorial | Tanieya and Jeff
I wanted to get my hair braided, but I didn't want to spend $180 to get them done. So, I decided to do them myself. Looking up so many ways to do box braids, I found the rubber band method! Let's see how my hair turned out:

The rubber band method: section your natural hair in 1-2 inch parts and securing each part at the root with a rubber band. This method will allow the install and grip of the hair to be easier, ease the tension of the braids, and your hair is already pre-sectioned for braiding.

My Experience:

 After parting my natural hair in 1 inch sections for the rubber band method, I began to braid my hair. Here are some tutorials to help you understand the rubber band method more:

When stretching the braiding hair, my hair was pretty long (waist length). I decided to keep my hair long, with no cutting necessary. Then I boiled my braids (no burning) to seal the ends. When I was done with my braids, I added some edge control to my edges and oil to my scalp.
This style took 4 hours to do.

My Thoughts:

Honestly this was the easiest style that I could do with some weave! I was pretty intimidated with using rubber bands in my hair. I did so much research to make sure I would be able to pull this style off. The braiding hair I used made this braiding process so easy and stress-free. The hair is tangle-free and it was easy to work with.

With this being the first time braiding my own hair with weave, I am pretty happy with the results.
I kept this style for 3 weeks...only because I wanted something new. This style could have last longer!
