How to do Short Knotless Braids with Beads on Natural Hair
As earlier mentioned, you don’t require braiding hair and extensions for this hairstyle since you’ll be using your natural hair.
You’ll first need to wash your natural hair, straighten, deep condition the moisturize it. Use a rat tail comb to section your hair in different parts depending on your desired size then apply the shine n jam conditioning gel on the roots.
The conditioning gel helps get a proper hold of the hair as it tames flyaways to make the parts look neat.
Plait your hair in three braids – this typically means dividing the parted sections further and then braiding it. Repeat the process until you are done with the entire head.
Start looping in the beads using the beader. Fold the hair at the end into two different parts to loop the beads into the hair. After folding, loop the hair into the beader’s eyelet or hole then slide up the beads. Use a black rubber band to secure the folded part of your natural hair to the last bead to cover the hair.
Position other beads properly by simply sliding them. Repeat the process on all the braids.
After you are done, apply mousse all over your head then use edge control to lay the edges. Bingo! Short knotless braids with beads.
Using Braiding Hair to do Short Knotless Braids with Beads
As usual, clean, straighten and moisturize your hair before braiding. Part your natural hair into sections using a rat tail comb then apply shine n jam conditioning gel on the parted sections for a neat look. Plus, it helps tame any flyaways.

This especially applies to those with short natural hair as it makes the knotless braids look like they were done without added extensions and braiding hair.
Repeat the process for the other sections until you are done with the entire head.
Take the beader, then fold the end of the hair in two parts and loop it in the beader’s eyelet or hole. Use the black rubber band to secure the folded part around your last bead as you slide them up.
