The first thing to remember is not to leave braids in for more than 4-6 weeks,  secondly educate your clients that tighter is not better.  Braiding hair too tight and keeping braids in too long will damage your natural hair.  Now, let's talk about how to care for braids with extensions.   Most people do not want to wash their hair while they have braids because they believe that it will fizz up,  however, washing and conditioning your hair two weeks after you get your braids will help eliminate dryness and  help to keep your hair follicles strong.  If you are concern with hair frizzing,  wear a stocking cap or wig cap for thirty minutes to lay down the hair,  make sure the cap that you use is breathable.
Applying a small amount to the scalp daily will also help to keep hair follicles from looking dry, dull, and lifeless and will keep your hair from thinning when the braids are removed.  There are a lot of strong ladies coming out allowing you to see what happens when you don't take care of your hair. Letting someone braid your hair too tight because you want it to last for two months is definitely a no,  or just leaving your hair in braids for 2 or 3 months to save money is definitely a no.  Braids are beautiful so let keep them looking beautiful and healthy by washing, and conditioning our hair.  You may not know this but products are another key factor in taking care of your hair,  so put good in to get good out.  

Note:  Our hair braiding school will start in a couple of months,  and we are here to teach you how to braid hair to prevent hair loss.   There is a technique to safe braiding.  If you have any question leave me a comment or email me at    Hair braiding is in our future and has been in our past for generations,  so it's not going anywhere,  so building safe braiding habits and natural hair care is a most.
