The hair you decide to wear should be great quality. Lower grade hair lasts a shorter amount of time and can contribute to allergic reactions on your scalp.
Talk To Your Stylist About Loosening Up
Start pro-actively and ask your stylist not to go extra tight with the braids; that way your scalp can get a little breathing room. You can also gel down the edges you don't want touched beforehand to prevent even more tugging.
Longer Isn't Always Better
Extensions should only last about 2-3 months before taking them out, removing the braids underneath and washing. Your hair needs oxygen delivered to the scalp to grow healthfully, and a good wash is always important!
Castor Oil Is Your Best Friend
Castor Oil will quickly
become your friend while wearing extensions. The thin, nourishing consistency will restore and protect your hair while helping it grow in fuller.
Opt For A Weave Cap After Braiding
Use a weave cap or net when getting your extensions sewn in. That way you're putting the needle directly to your own hair and have some space for moisture and growth.
Lay Off The Ponytails
Ponytails create a lot of extra tension on the hair and since it will already be braided tightly under your extensions, don't add any extra strain!
Purchase an Edge Control with Nourishing Benefits
Before you go buying the cheapest edge control, make sure they have benefits for growing and nourishing your tight edges (they will thank you later).
