Which braids last longer knotless or regular? 

From my experience, knotless braids tend to get frizzier slightly faster than regular box braids because they have more natural hair out from the root. If you want braids that last longer for a protective go with traditional box braids as they last later than knotless braids.

Because Knotless braids expose more of the natural root of the hair, they don’t last longer than regular box braids. If you are looking for braids that last longer and protect the hair, go with traditional box braids. 

Are knotless braids with beads heavy?

Since Knotless braids lay flat, they won’t feel super heavy on your head with the small beads. Remember that this will depend on the person, as some people can take heavy braids, and some don’t like heavier braids. 

How long do knotless braids with beads last?

This will vary depending on the care of the knotless braids but on average knotless braids can last at least two months with proper care.
