A few months ago I created this natural hairstyle. It was time for something new and Jumbo Box Braids seemed to be trending. Being that I’d been wanting to try the rubberband method and I needed a hairstyle that would last me more than a week, I decided to get some hair and do this style.
The Jumbo Box braid hairstyle is a protective style for natural hair. On my 4c natural hair its often necessary to braid it to keep it from tangles. I used ombre kanekelon hair from the local beauty supply store. The brand evades me because its not a popular brand, however the color is really pretty so I decided to go with it.
To create this super cute summer natural hairstyle it took about 4 hours total. That includes rubber banding braiding and styling. As I did the style again in the months to follow the process got quicker. Now to do the rubberband method Jumbo Box Braids on my 4c natural hair it takes about 2 1/2 hours to complete.
I used rubberband, gel, a comb, and hair to complete this style. Following the actual Jumbo Braids I also used hair accessories to make the style look better. Here’s a step by step video tutorial on how to create Jumbo Box Braids on yourself from home using the rubber band method. I hope you enjoy and don’t forget to subscribe.
Until Next time
