The crochet braids were worn for six weeks and they could have lasted longer but I missed my hair. Also, for fine hair, in my humble opinion, long-term protective styles should not be worn for more than 6 weeks. The reason is that the small diameter that fine strands have will encourage more matting and tangles. I am speaking from experience.

I am glad I used braiding hair ( small amount) to Cornrow my hair. That provided cushion and extra protection for my own hair. The idea of using braiding hair came handy when I was removing the extensions.
I have three videos coming up on how I installed, maintained and removed the crochet braids.
Stay tuned and till next time, thanks for visiting and God bless yah!
