Micro braid hairstyles are becoming more popular for more people. The reasons are fairly obvious, they are relatively low maintenance, look great and can be styled further after the braiding. This makes for an all around great look whether you’re going to be on the fashion runway or just out in your daily life. However, before going through with this hairstyle, it’s important to remember that, as with all things in life, if you don’t properly care for it, it won’t be its best; sometimes it can turn out simply terrible if not cared for properly.
There are few steps you can follow in order to ensure that your hairstyle will last as long as you want it to. First, make sure that before you go in to have your hair done, it is in perfect condition; this can take months, but it will be worth it. Next, make sure that your hair is at its peak moisture content before you go in. This will help with the overall process as well as the end result. During the braiding process you will want to make sure that they aren’t being braided too tight, any pain is a sign that things could go bad. Don’t be afraid to speak up and let your braider know that it hurts and ask them to loosen them.
After you’ve gotten your braids, the next step is maintenance. Always make sure that your hair is well moisturized and be sure to thoroughly wash your hair at least once a week. This regimen of conditioner and washing will increase the overall health of your hair and hopefully prevent loss. Remember to continue your hair care routine and keep at it even after they’re out; this way your hair can recover from the process.
