Box Braids| Kids natural hairstyles

It has been a while since I gave an update on little L's hair. So, I started this new regimen whereby, her hair is hardly manipulated. The regimen has been working because her hair is growing so much.
It is very simple! I wash, condition and stretch her hair in about 6 twists. I usually use Shea moisture moisturizing crème for kids topped with raw Shea butter on her hair before stretching. The next couple of days, I put her hair in mini braids. It takes me a couple of days because the braids are so small.

One of these days, I am going to start doing videos again and show how I braid her hair and take them out. While she is wearing her braids, I cowash them using As I Am Coconut Cowash conditioner. I always moisturize with the Shea moisture curling crème for kids and seal with Shea butter to keep the ends stretched.

her braids were braided damp in 10 sections for this curly look

I like the individual braids because I am able to massage her scalp with oils and they are versatile. I also try not to use anything liquid to moisturize the braids because I like to keep them stretched especially because they are so small and can easily form single strand knots on the ends. I use a water-based creamy moisturizer to moisturize her braids. I use Shea Moisture curling butter for kids and seal the ends with raw Shea butter.

This style usually lasts for a month  and can last longer if kept well.
