The last time I did a box braid hairstyle was when Bunny’s hair was almost a foot shorter, so it’s been a really long time!
Bunny saw a little girl with microbraids at the gym and she’s been wanting them for a while now!
She’s super excited about them and told me to tell you guys that there will be lots and lots of micro braid hairstyles coming soon!
For braiding the hair you’ll need:
Hair clips to section hair
Products I used:
Original Sprout Deep Conditioner
Darcys Botanicals Daily Leave In Conditioner
I let her hair stretch for a couple of days before I attempted her mini braids.
I took down all of the thread, added a generous amount of Darcys Botanicals Daily Leave In Conditioner, added a little coconut oil on top of that and began the actual braiding process.
Actually, I did the parting the same way that I did her mini two strand twists a couple of months ago!
However, when I got towards the front, I switched over to actual “box” parts so her braids would lay a little more naturally.
We’re really, really hoping to get at least two months out of them. I may take them down for the fourth of July so she can rock a ‘fro, but we’ll see!
Did you like them and do you have any tips for the rest of the readers?
