    Default ?s for those who transitioned w exstensions ( braids)

    How often did you wash/co wash?

    How long did you leave your braids in each time?

    Any suggestions? Tips?

    Currently looking for a braider who won't braid to tight. I want a style I can wash often.

    I washed every week, mostly co-washing w/ a silicone, sls, paraben free conditioner

    The braids would last for about 3-4 months ( and that was a stretch)

    Keeping YOUR hair clean opposed to the weave was very important to me since that's what you're trying to grow so keeping the scalp cleand and not neglecting your main reason for the braids helps

    I transitioned part of the time with cornrowed extensions and part of the time with micros. I washed weekly. I used to use break through creme/oil on my scalp. Of course knowing what I know now I wouldn't use that, but it was all I knew. Just make sure you keep your own hair and scalp moisturized and clean. Try using something that won't cause a lot of build up.
