Protective styling helps you to reduce the manipulation of your hair so that you can retain length.  One of the trending protective styles is “Puzzle Part Box Braids.”

At first glance you may think this is a kids hairstyle, but many adult women are opting for this look. If you’re curious about how it’s done check out this tutorial below.

You only need:

  • a styling gel/edge control of your choice (We recommend that you try the PureFix Hair Elixir which is a great scalp moisturizer (while promoting growth). It has a cooling sensation once you rub it in and it’s perfect for protective styles.)
  • a comb for parting
  • rubber bands
  • braiding hair
  • a pitcher of hot water
  • a towel
  • accessories of your choice
