Benefits of knotless braids
Knotless braids have many benefits, the first being that they are much less painful than boxer braids. You’re not knotting the top of your head so there’s not a lot of pressure, ensuring your hair stays light and breakage is reduced. Even better, it is very low maintenance, lasts a long time and looks natural.
