Knotless box braids are a great protective hairstyle that combines synthetic or human hair into cornrows without using any knots.

Knotless box braids can protect your natural hair and help retain moisture, and the braids can also give your hair a break from styling and manipulation. On average, the braids can last for 5 to 6, depending on the size of the braids. But most medium knotless braids can last at least five weeks with proper maintenance.

Knotless braids are a great protective style because they don’t cause as much tension on the scalp as traditional box braids and are less likely to cause breakage.

They also look more natural and can last up to 8 weeks with proper care. Knotless braids also have more styling versatility since you can access your natural hair between them without having to undo them.

What size are medium knotless braids?

Medium knotless braids typically measure between 1/4 and 1/2 inches in diameter. The size will depend on the type of hair used and the size of the particular braids. If you are unsure, it’s always best to consult a professional hairstylist to ensure you get the size and look you desire.

Which last longer box braids or knotless?

Generally, box braids can last up to 8 weeks, while knotless braids can last up to 12 weeks. However, it depends on how you take care of your braids. If you make sure to wash, condition, and oil your braids regularly, both types of braids can last for a long time. Proper care is the key to keeping your braids looking great for longer. 

What’s the difference between Knotless and box braids? 

Knotless braids are a type of hairstyle created by using synthetic extensions that have no knots in them. This allows the wearer to achieve a natural-looking style, eliminating the small bumps that can occur with standard box braids.

Box braids are a type of hairstyle created by using small sections of hair and creating three-strand braids secured with elastics. Box braids tend to create a more defined and structured look compared to the more natural look of knotless braids.

Box Braids vs. Knotless Braids

With box braids, a knot is used to secure the braids in your hair. With knotless braids, the stylist will use your hair to start the braids and let it feed into the braids as they braid down. 

Both braids are super cute. If you don’t want your braids super tight, inform the stylist not to braid tight beforehand. 

How much should medium knotless cost?

The cost of knotless braids will vary depending on the stylist, but the average range for knotless braids is $150 to $500, depending on location and also the stylist. Also, keep in mind the size of the braids and also the length and longer  & smaller braids are usually more in price.
