Jumbo box braids are the proper way to protect coarse hair from damaging factors and keep your black hair tamed. If done properly, they can last for even two months, and you can use them just like unbraided hair to create bob haircuts, ponytails, half up half down hairstyles, and so many other hairdos.
How To Get Jumbo Box Braids
First of all, your hair needs to be a few inches long. Also, depending on its thickness, you need to get some jumbo hair bundles to split into smaller sections. Attach the synthetic hair to your tresses by making small knots and braiding them.
Make sure you smoothen the base with your favorite jam. This way, the attaching procedure is so much easier.
Once you are done braiding, tie the knits with small rubber bands or dip the tips into boiling water to secure them. It sounds like a hard job to do, but the outcome is quite fabulous!
