The knotless box braid hairstyle has been around since the 2000s but picked up popularity last year and has now become the go-to protective hairstyle for black women around the world as evident on social media.

This protective hairstyle looks more natural than traditional box braids and honestly, much cooler too. It does not require a high pain tolerance like its traditional counterpart and during this lockdown season, many brown girls are favoring the jumbo knotless box braids.

The knotless box braids differ from the traditional box braids in that the braids do not include the small knot that sits at the root of the scalp because of the addition of extensions. With this hairstyle, the braid is created by adding extension to the natural hair in small pieces, resulting in a plait that lies flat and isn’t as heavy on the scalp. How’s that for having braided hair without all the tension on your scalp and edges?


This is definitely the reason why so many women, including celebrities like Rihanna and Jhene Aiko, are opting for this protective style. And if you go for the jumbo knotless box braids like Jhene Aiko’s, you get to spend much less time on the braiding chair!
