Micro Braids

This is one of the most popular braid styles because it is a great alternative to weaves. Normally human hair is added to the hair by making very small braids with knots tied at the ends. The braids should not be done too small or it can cause major breakage and will be difficult to remove the braids. The hair can be braided past the natural hair or some of the natural hair can be left out for a more natural look. If the natural hair is left out, the added hair must be of the same texture.

The hair should be washed at least once a week, concentrating on the scalp and massaging gently to remove build up. The scalp will be tender after braiding but should cease after a few days.

This style can take about 8-10 hours to complete and last 3-4 months with proper care. Prices start at $150.
