Virgin Roots recommends when styling the hair in micro braids, kinky twists, cornrows, two-strand twists, and comb twist styles, take care to ensure the natural hair is not stressed by the weight of the extension. The hair is should not be braided too tight around the natural hair, especially around the hairline.

Braids are great protective and low-maintenance styles. Braided styles do not require the regular maintenance other styles do. If extensions are added, the hair can be curled without adding heat to the natural hair.

Braids and twists also serve as a transition style for those ready to go completely natural without any chemicals. Click through the styles list and view more details. Visit for more ideas on how to go natural.
