I love braids with extensions..VERY MUCH. But I can't wear them because when I take the extensions out, I am left with no hairline. This happened to me so many times, no matter how gentle the braider was. Now, there are other naturals that can rock braids with extensions with no damage to their hairline. I believe those have thicker strands which I do not. The hair comprising my hairline is even thinner and finer like "baby baby hair".
The hair comprising the hairline of someone that has fine hair should not carry any"extra weight" that will pull the hair out of the scalp. The hairline should be treated with a lot of TLC, by not pulling the hair and massaging the scalp in that area to increase blood flow for growth stimulation.
Braids with extensions are not the only culprit for damage to the hairline. Cornrow and Flat Twist wearers need to be careful too, when styling their hair. If you must wear these styles as protective styles, try not to wear them consistently. For example, you can wear cornrows this week and two strand twists the following week. You also have to be careful about braiding in the same direction all the time. Change up your styles so that you don't consistently put tension on the same area all the time.
