Knotless Braids near you
Knotless braids have become extremely popular in the past 3 years. They are similar to box braids but differ as there is no knot used at the start of the root. This means no tension therefore a great protective style that will minimise hair breakage.
Knotless braids are complex to execute so it is important to get a stylist who can do them well. Knotless braids are created through the feed-in braid technique. This involves adding small amounts of braiding hair extensions gradually as you braid down the hair. It will help give the flat appearance and evenness of the braid. Due to the lack of knots, the braids look very natural and seamlessly blend into your own hair. Do not be surprised if you try them and permanently replace your go-to box braids with knotless braids.
With the use of the feed-in technique and lack of knots, the knotless braids feel very light on the head. They are also painless when installing and have zero discomforts felt during the 24 hours that you would normally have after getting box braids. You can use the same hair extension braids used for your box braids and similarly choose different sizes and colours you want to choose from; normal, jumbo, or small. It takes 4-8 hours to install and can last up to 6 weeks.Afrocks can help you find and book vetted mobile Knotless Braids afro hairdressers in London in just a few clicks.
