Top Hair Braiding related questions

Not necessarily. If it's done safely and properly by an expert hairdresser, there will be minimal damage to your hair. Braiding your hair helps it grow quicker by protecting it from day-to-day contact with objects that can cause breakage. Any damage to your hair that comes from it may be due to improper maintenance and leaving them on beyond the ideal time.

There are many ways to maintain your braids and ensure their longevity. Apply a leave-in conditioner twice or thrice a week to prevent drying and breakage. Also, remember to wash them at least twice a month to remove sweat, dirt, and product residue. Make sure to redo your edges as well after your roots have grown and most importantly, don't leave them in for longer than two months as this may lead to damage and eventual hair loss.

In most cases, smaller braids last longer than bigger or more complicated styles. For example, Dutch or French braids typically last anywhere between four to ten days while cornrows and micro braids last between three to six months. Sleep can also impact their lifespan. Restless sleep can mess up your hair quicker, so it's ideal to use hair scarfs or a silk pillowcase.

For smaller braids, the minimum hair length is typically between three to four inches of hair. For longer ones, five to eight inches are ideal for an intricate and dramatic style. Hair that is longer than eight inches are already meant for extreme styles. The thickness of your hair is also a factor in determining the right length. Generally, thicker hair needs to be longer than thin hair to produce quality braids.

Not really. There's no need to wash your hair before your appointment. In general, braids are easier to create and are proven to last longer when there are natural hair oils present. However, if you prefer to wash your hair prior, that is also acceptable. Cleansing your hair can remove any buildup of dirt, so your scalp is clean, fresh, and ready for styling.

It will boil down to the style that you want. Dutch or mermaid braids without extensions and colouring can take approximately 40 minutes, while cornrows generally take 10 to 15 minutes per row. Micro braids can take about five minutes per plait and for full heads and longer hairstyles, expect the service to be completed anywhere between three to eight hours.
