1. Bob Box Braids
For those with short natural hair textures, a bob box braid hairstyle is an easy and low-maintenance option. No need to sit in a chair for several hours. Book an appointment with your favorite stylist or DIY with some online tutorials. Be sure to start off with clean and conditioned hair before starting the braiding process, that way your hair will be prepped properly.
Reach for a hair care system that’s made for natural hair, such as the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Curls Moisture Push Shampoo and L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Curls Moisture Seal Conditioner. Both products are formulated with hyaluronic acid and castor oil which add an extra touch of hydration to dry strands.
Then apply the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Frizz Killer Serum Leave-In throughout your strands to prevent any unwanted frizz. Follow by parting and plaiting your hair, taking it section by section. After your braids are done, add some more of the serum to the palm of your hands and run it over your braids to seal in any flyaways and add some shine. If you need rubber bands or beads to hold the braids at the end, make them part of the style.
