19 Easy Medium Box Braids to Try This Season

#1: Braids with Beads

Some may label it as tribal braids or box braids and cornrow combination style. This look is very trendy and cute, as you can see. Box braid styles can take 3 hours to complete and uses two packages of braiding hair – Supreme Hair Super tz4 38′ was used. What I like about this hairstyle is that it won’t be heavy because of the length it has. It also gives you a different bob look as opposed to just regular box braids. I also like to see the zig-zag parts, and for this length, I prefer beads rather than leaving it as it is. I feel like the beads add a pop to the style.

It lasts at least a month, and for some textures, the cornrow may tend to grow out faster. To maintain this hairstyle, I recommend that a client uses oil or grease to moisturize the scalp about every 2-3 days. Don’t do it every day because the pores in the scalp may clog up, and one does this to prevent a dry scalp from forming. If the scalp becomes itchy, there are some itch relief products you can try or use, such as tea tree oil.

#2: Thick Honey Blonde Braids

For a different spin on traditional braids, try thick honey blonde 2-strand twists. For the best end result, try to have your hair as straight as possible without heat damage, or seek this style if your hair isn’t very thick and coarse. One of the best ways to ensure your twists are smooth is by having a strong gel product. Try LocN gel for locs and twists for a super sleek and firm hold.

This look is refreshing. It’s something new and different from regular box braids that lack colors. It’s lightweight, easy to manage, quick to do, and overall one of my favorite protective hairstyles.

This hairstyle is for all curly, kinky, course, and coily hair types. The kinkier your locks, the longer the style will last! This hairstyle is so universal and can go with any style.

Some of my favorite products to use with this style is the Creme of Nature Edge Control, Africana 3x 84″ hair by FreeTress, Shea Moisture Twisting Butter, and black rubber bands to keep the style in place. Use rubber bands if your hair is a little on the soft side, so it tends to slip out of braids easily, but by using the rubber bands, the style can last twice as long. If you don’t want to use rubber bands, you can also skip this step.

This style is also so easy to take care of. All you need is to wash your scalp once a week or once every two weeks, wrap your hair at night, and moisturize it daily!

Crochet braids are not only a great protective style but also low-maintenance.

To maintain, apply Influence rosemary stimulating spray to the scalp. After application, use a clean washcloth to wipe the scalp clean lightly. Carter adds, “Use the Influence organic complex to rejuvenate and moisturize scalp for longer-lasting crochet install. It’s not recommended to go longer than a month and a half. If you desire, you can use an extra-large hair bonnet to preserve crochet hair or use a satin scarf.”

If you have this type of hair, don’t use a particular product on the braids because sometimes the braids can be oily. Although, every week, moisturize your scalp with coconut or shea butter.
